This backpackers was always clean and has a really good spot near the beach with amazing views. However, you have to pay for the wifi (if you want more than 20 mins), there were no plug sockets in the downstairs dorm and there was no food being served in the evenings (which was advertised on their website). There were also... More

I would recommend with how busy it gets, you need lockers for valuables. Plus free wifi. Backpackers need trip adviser and tinder lol (hence not full stars but loved the place... More

Whilst I was, sadly, only able to spend two nights at the Wilderness Beach House, the accommodation was very comfortable and the amenities more than adequate, The owner,Annie, and her staff super friendly and helpful, and the homemade breads and pizzas and a chicken curry absolutely delicious..

I stayed at Annie`s place for two nights and it was so lovely. Stuff is great, I had a very nice talk with Annie, Lisa, Terance and Sukumzi (sorry, not sure how to write the name). The dorm was nice, clean, with a beautiful view of the sea. I really enjoyed every second there. When I am back, will visit... More

Absolutely loved this hostel. The dorm rooms are incredibly light and very clean. The views from the rooms are incredible and as there are no curtains you wake to incredible sunrises every morning. They provided a great breakfast for only 45rand with loads of variety. Some nights they also offer dinner and wood fire cooked pizzas but this wasn't available... More

This place lives on its view and has potential. Splendid scenery from the veranda over the Indian ocean. When we checked in there was guys working in the reception that we never did see again. It is not clear who are working and who are guest at this place. Especially since some of the guys and girls that was working... More

The beach right in front of the building is a big plus. We met a lot of nice people and the staff is very friendly and always happy to help out if you have a question. Don't expect too much of the breakfast, but notice theres a supermarket and various cafés and restaurants very nearby. I would definitely recommend a... More

Spent a night here, having had to book a bed at last minute - gladly they had availability. First off, they have free parking just outside the property which seemed safe (it's located at a cul-de-sac). The outdoor areas are cool, with a bar just outside the sleeping house. And my favourite part was the room (dorm), which was very... More
