I stayed in a twin room at Mossel Bay Backpackers after Santos Express (where I'd actually booked) had overbooked and re-booked me in here. It was a very quiet night when I was there. The guy on reception (sorry I didn't catch his name!) was really friendly and very helpful - he really set a good tone about the place. When we were there, the pool was being cleaned, but that was ok because it was late when we arrived and were leaving early next morning. The room was comfortable - the beds were more what you expect in a hotel rather than a hostel. The communal bathroom was never too busy (but the hostel seemed half empty) but it did have a lot of water all over the floor when I went in there. Overall, a pretty decent hostel in a nice town. But not the place to go if you want vibe and atmosphere
