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.

This backpacker was great to stay at. The staff members were great and friendly as well as helpful. The location was clean and well looked after. Certainly if I'm back I will be staying again. They offer a great range of activities that you can do in the local area.

The only suggestions we have...

Clean facilities, big kitchen, option of ordering breakfast, friendly staff, good service, numerous activities that staff will book for you. Shower with cold water after 11 PM, beds could be a bit softer.

We stayed in a tent because there were no rooma available. The hostel itself is nice and its in a safe area, the staff is very nice and helpful. But I wouldnt stay in a tent again. Bathrooms could also be a bit cleaner

Our party of 8 had a very pleasent stay in the Tsitsikamma backpackers camp. We enjoyed a great breakfast, had comfy sleeping conditions out of the rain and a place to put our goodies in a fridge. If you like to rough it a bit this is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the beautiful areas around Storms River....

This is the most green and environment lode i met since my trip. Even the staff wear green t-shirts. They really care about environment. They are very helpful and arrange a taxi for you if you need one for your excursions. "The Big Tree" is from walking distance of this nice lodge.
