“Excellent budget option”
Reviewed 13 August 2010

You really do stay with the family at Nelspruit Backpackers, as the place basically is their home, but they are a terrific family, and the place is safe, quiet, and welcoming without being in your face. It's an excellent option at a good price, and a very good place to arrange Kruger safaris from.

Stayed here over a period of two weeks.. spent a few days in the dorm and the rest camping out in the backyard...
Nelspruit Backpackers is located quite close to town and you have the Bar and Mall just up the road. The hosts are great and let you be. The place has a charm to it.. If I may say 'rustic beauty' to it.
The dorms are very comfortable and they have great campsites. Def recommend it to anybody heading to Nelspruit for a Kruger trip..!

They guys who run this hostel and bar are running this place very informaly. The beds are a bit worn out, but the slightly disorganised management makes this place great to stay at. Both guys are really friendly and very helpfull, plus the cleaning crew seem to know what they are doing.
