I enjoyed my stay at the backpackers and I'd return at any given time. It was clean and the service was excellent. I enjoyed their affordable breakfast and supper was delicious, how could I forget the chicken.

It was a great bit of glamping sleeping in a comfortable tent on a comfortable bed. Shared bathrooms were clean. The team was very helpful in identifying activities in the area. Had a good stay with my friend!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed the place. Not only they can organize every activity you wish to do in the area, from segway to bungee jump, but also the staff is incredibly friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. And their bar is really fun, with a lot of games like pool and darts....

Great stay with them, staff around always ready to help. Several activities to do, and the Segway was fun, and the guide very professional too ! The tents are nice too, except for the matrass which seemed a bit to soft. Place was very clean, kitchen well organised.

Nice little place in the heart of stormsriver close to most of the activities on offer. You have the options to sleep outside in the tents or typical backpackers room inside. Good wifi connectivity and nice outside braai spot. The staff are some of the most friendliest people I have come across.

The positive sides: clean rooms, good wifi in a nice area, nice bar and you can eat at the hostel with others. Some personel very friendly, others not. The down sides: Very thin walls and doors. We woke up every day because of people just talking downstairs. Showers do not always work. Very commercial feel. Examples: 1. breakfast includes tea...
