“Great!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

This place is awesome! We arrived here late at night after 4 days of music festival absolutely exhausted. We were welcomed and made to feel at home. The beds are big and comfortable and bathrooms clean. If you looking for a stop over between Pretoria and Cape Town, this place is perfect.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends

The Karoo backpackers was amazing. We were treated so well, and found the accommodations clean, warm and very comfortable.
Thanks so much to Jo and team for being so very accommodating and amazing. We arrived much later than we had anticipated and even this was no trouble at all. We had a lovely six sleeper room and the kids loved sleeping in the bunk beds. Thanks so much.

The N1 Highway runs through the town of Beaufort-West and this means it runs 5 meters away from the place that you sleep. No window can be opened due to this. Fortunedly it wasn't a hot night when we stayed here on our way to Jo'burg from Capetown. We paid R 420 for a room (no breakfast) for two with shower. To park the car safely at one of the other hotels accross the road will costs you another R40 extra. The reception was very friendly and helpfull and also the owner has a wealth of information about the area with the Karoo National Park on its doorstep. It definitely is an area to visit again but not next to the N1 for a good night rest due the heavy traffic outside.

Reviewed 12 March 2013

The service was great here, so friendly and helpful for where to go out for dinner etc. Even when we booked they were very helpful, as I booked the last en suite for my parents, and my sister and her boyfriend, as well as my boyfriend and myself into what they had left, which was the double bedrooms and a shared bathroom. So they called us up and actually got us all into one large apartment, which was very spacious and well laid out, with a honesty bar. However, in the evening it was so hot (they had no fans or air-conditioning in the rooms) we opened the windows but it was too loud (it is situated right on the busy street) and the mosquito's were aplenty. So I recommend it for a budget sleep if you're backpacking, but not as a family stop over etc.
