We enjoyed our time in valley view, the staff is very very nice and helpful and the place well located. The only think that wasent enough was the level of cleaning. The rooms need renovation and new beddings. If the place will change that i think the guests will have much better time in the backpackers.

It's backpackers style, appropriate to go with a group of friends. The staff is really nice and helpful. Very clean property and right into the nature, great view to the mountains. There's internet but you have to pay and the signal isn't perfect. Although is a very cold area, but no heater in many rooms.

We stay here 3 nights in dormitory. The room have own toilette and shower. You have also a kitchen, other toilets and showers. Some books are there, that can give idea for hiking or everything. All is clean, but the dormitory is a bit humid and cold. But you can ask for more blanquettes.

From when we arrived, Joseph was a friendly and welcoming host. We stayed in the rondavel, which has room for four to sleep (although this might be fairly cosy!), a small kitchenette, fridge and bathroom with a hot shower. These were more than enough facilities for us! It seemed fairly full when we were there, with people staying in the...

Beautiful scenic route from nelspruit - even in the clouds/fog it was clearly very pretty. Nice owner, Joseph, who keeps very much to the background. Fully equiped, everything is provided. Downside; Wifi is paid. Hostel is a bit run down (like most budget options outside big cities) but everything works!

If you like peace and quiet. This is the place to be. Nice garden, dorms and privates for a reasonable price. Good equipped kitchen. The owner is helpful and friendly. They have their own parking lot where your car is safe. In Graskop itself there is not much to do.

The backpackers is nice and clean with a cosy feel. It is located in a quiet and safe area with an awesome view of the valley right in front of the hostel. Joseph is a sincere and accommodating host and always makes sure his guests are well taken care of. Good stop for drives to Panorama Route.

We stayed in Valley View for one night. We stayed in some kind of forest cabin for two persons. It was quite small, but well, it was all we needed for a night. The staff is really friendly, the view from the hostel over the hills is really great. We could use all of the kitchen facilities, there's a braai,...

“Stay in one of the huts or out of the main area, because depending on the group that's staying, they could be a little loud in the common area, and the rooms are right off of it.”
