We got stuck at a garage in the main road when our car broke down! The friendly staff at the garage recommended we call the Backpackers as it was already 9pm. As there is no cab service in town, Kevin offered to come fetch us from the garage. We were treated to comfy beds, warm hospitality and amazing kindness! Thank...

Lovely place! Very good! I strongly recommend this place to stay. I was there with a group of friends, some of them from other countries such as England, Australia and Brazil. If I go to Robertson again, this is the place I will stay.

The fact that the word backpacker is in the title of this place almost doesn't do it justice to how good it actually is. Booked a private room here with my girlfriend just to check out the wineries for an afternoon and had a splendid time. The staff on hand there were so gracious in taking care of us and...

Me and friends stayed here for a wedding outside of Robertson and had an absolute blast. Marco and Sue run the place and are the friendliest people ever! Marco picked us up from the wedding at 1am and did it with a smile! Rooms are very clean and the honesty bar is a massive plus stacked with everything needed. Very...

Robertson Backpackers combines the best features of a hotel and a hostel. We stayed in a lovely garden room which we would have been happy with in any hotel, and the rest of the building was finished to a really high standard. But what really made our stay was the great personal service and local knowledge - the owners really...

We arrived here in the early afternoon. Our garden room was already set for us. It has a nice interior and is really light, especially the bathroom. The hostel offers various common areas, our favorite, besides the garden, was the feel-like-home kitchen. Prior to our arrival we booked a wine tour. Marco (he and his wife Susanne take care of...
