My boyfriend and I spent two nights in a private double room at Jeffreys Bay Backpackers and found everything quite comfortable and clean. The communal bathrooms and showers were of a good size and number. The outdoor pool was a nice bonus, as was the numerous communal areas. The best feature of this backpackers though i with booking a surf...

The place is falling apart. The paint is coming off the walls. The place smells like pee . The you can't close the windows from inside you have to rush it closed from the outside. The people are not friendly at all. The fridge doesn't even keep your stuff cold that's if there is even space for your stuff and...

The staff are nice here - but that is the extent of the positive review. They had one bathroom for a 16 bed room, a tiny kitchen where one person could cook at a time, no lockers for valuables (I was clutching my belongings at night), and the door to the dorm doesn't close properly. I stayed for one night...

Through Hostelworld we booked a private twin room, shared bathroom for 400 rand (€28). The room didnt look anything like the ones in the photos on the site. We have slept in much better places for less money. The bathrooms were filthy, the beds had very poor mattresses and it was very noisy. There was no possibility to charge your...

checked out after one night and found somewhere else to stay, it was like a YMCA for local men. the rooms and bathrooms were hideous, the tap was hanging off. R400 for a double private room with no breakfast or towels (not that I'd want to use there's) was the worst value out of all the properties I stayed in...

We stayed for one night in December 2016 and felt a little let down. We felt that the pictures we saw online were not a true reflection of what the place looks like now. The rooms definitely need to be fitted with fans as we hardly got any sleep as it was hot the night that we stayed. Other that...

Staff were professional, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was clean and neat. Everything was as excepted from a backpacker. Only negative was the condition of the kitchen at times, but this was due to the other guests.
