Stumble Inn is the perfect place to go if you want to experience the wine lands and not break the bank. It’s a great location, just a minutes’ walk from all the trendy restaurants and wine bars of down town. They also run a great wine tour! The backers itself has a lively bar and a nice garden to chill...

This was my 3rd stay at Stumble Inn as it is in a great location for transport by train and exploring town. The staff were friendly enough without being anything special. The amenities are very good, lovely showers, a swimming pool and a good kitchen for self-catering. Unfortunately they didn't have a key for our room when we checked in...

My short stay at the Stumble Inn was very good. The premise is divided in two The main building with reception, TV lounge, pool table and smoking area and the neighbor building with more dorms, a fire place and a pool. Both are secured by fences and a number lock. Nevertheless are you advised to leave your valuables in the...

My husband and I stayed at Stumble Inn many years ago as students and camped. This time we booked a private room. I was a bit nervous to stay as there are quite a few bad reviews on the place. When we arrived the staff were friendly, the place was clean. The room was really clean, neat and comfy. We...

We arrived here to find out three cars had been broken into in the past week. They confused our booking and didn't have a room for us. Then decided to put us in a dorm in the other building. After being told they didn't have a security box for us but assured the place was safe and there was a...

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights when we went to Stellenbosch for a wine tour. We rented a room for four and it was in the house next to the building with the reception. The room and the bathroom were clean and the house even had a garden with a pool (that I personally didn't use cause it...

The night before we arrived a car had been broken into right outside the place. We arrived and they 'mucked' up our booking so had to go to the place a couple of doors down the road. We dropped our stuff off in a private room after being told not to leave anything in the car. We went out for...

This hostel was awful and I regret booking it at all. When I arrived there were random men sleeping in the lounge who obviously weren't guests. The door handle to the room I was given was broken. Also the room had no fan or aircon, only a gigantic window which had no bars on it for safety nor locks. The...

We stayed here for 1 night in a private room. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room clean and homely. Unfortunately our car got broken into right in front of the backpackers during our stay that night and our clothes were stolen. The security camera outside apparently didn't wanna work when I asked the management to check the...

“Have a look at where your room is first. The other house has no areas to chill and our room was right next to the main door and road making it very noisy despite being told this is a nice and quiet room.”

“Don't pick the front room by the front door. Most of the other rooms further in the property are better.”
