Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Being on a budget, this is a great stay, and still getting the private feeling as we staying in a private room with en suit bathroom. Very interesting decorations all around. Bar available, with pool and pool tables. Clean neat and sanitary. Coffee is available in the room. Walking distance to the beach and resturants. Happy to stay here again.

We had the whole apartment rented. The place is very clean, located in the central part of the city, very safe and close to the beautiful beach. The staff very nice and helpful indicated to go for a walk to the port because there is a permanent family sting ray! Amazing experience. I recommend this place!

Lovely spot that is way bigger than it appears. Bedrooms were beautifully decorated and had a good amount of space. Kitchen area was great for hanging out and the pool area was divine. Variety of ages of people staying there and they are very eco friendly.

Had a fab time here with my granddaughter. Friendly welcome, lovely room (Tygerberg), ensuite with bunk beds, which my granddaughter loved. Straight to the pool, with a beer from the bar. Time to explore the outside areas, full of secret little places to relax. Excellent dinner and great choice of breakfast options. Had time to go the beach, white sands, and bonus of seeing so many rays! In summary - great little backpackers, excellent service, good value for money.

Really nice backpacker hostel super close to the beach. The beach is a nice white sand beach where you can go for a swim or long walk. Southernmost point is only few kilometers away. Hostel has a nice bar and indoor fire place. If you love hostel life & socializing this is the place to be.

We have had a great time at the backpackers. We only stayed there for one night but we had delicious dinner and breakfast. It is really colourful decorated and nice people. Unfortunately there are dogs walking around, also in the doorms. Nevertheless we highly recommend this place.

The place was clean and tidy, kitchen well equipped, receptionists kind, welcoming and informative. Not much to do in Struisbaai, but L'Agulhas is very close, where you have things to do or see, and the road there alng the ocean(s) are beautiful, and offers pretty sunsets.
