This was a great stay just before we left south Africa to Paris. The owners are very nice and good advisors. There is a good atmosphere there and the private rooms are really nice. We recommend it for sure!

Certainly one of the nicest backpackers I've stayed in, and I've been in a few around the world. The owner Isel, and her daughter Monique, really make you feel at home. I felt like part of the family, and I only stayed a couple of nights. Nothing is too much for them, anything you need, they are more than happy... More

We had a really nice stay at the Backpackers. The people were friendly and the bath was clean. We stayed in a room for two people. It was really clean. They have a big table outside, where you can meet with the people. We really enjoyed it. Thank you
