We had a great experience at Backpackers Paradise & Joyrides. We were only there for one night but will be back soon. Marius was an excellent host and the backpackers venue was great. Thank you Marius

We had a wonderful experience here. It is a huge place that is well kept, clean and comfortable. Our room was clean and beds were very comfortable! Would definitely recommend it for people who are either just passing through or need to stay a while!

We stayed there one night in a private ensuite room, which was spacious and clean. The kitchen is completely equipped with everything you could need, and we had free ostrich eggs for breakfast in the morning!! There is a nice small swimming pool, and in general the atmosphere is very relaxed. We would definitely stay there again! :)

We are a family of 4 and our stay at the backpackers was perfect. Great value for money and pretty comfortable. All four of us stayed in one room that had an en suite bathroom. The people working there were also very friendly and helpful.

Great rooms, excellent food and a perfect location. One of the best places I stayed during my 3 week tour of SA. Cycle from the top of the mountain is a must do but not easy! Nice to see vegetarians catered for at meal times and a great pub on site too. Wine was sensational.

My friends and I had a great stay at the Backpackers Paradise. We were welcomed very warmly and showed around the whole place. The rooms were very nice and in the evening we could play pool and drink some drinks with the other guests at the bar.

I stayed there for 2 nights and I loved it! Friendly and helpful people, good organized activities and good food! The dorm was big and you have enough space. There are just 4 meals to choosw for dinner.

I spent one night here with the hotspots tour and it was unbelievably charming. The wifi only works in the reception/hangout area but that doesn't really matter. It's a big property filled with cozy, homey things. The only downside was the very rude bartender who wouldn't let me and the rest of the group play beerpong, at all, because he...

From the moment we entered the premises we enjoyed the friendly staff and clean facilities. The security is of a very high standard. The two nights we stayed there we never felt unsafe for a moment.Truly a positive experience.
