Having been to Backpackers Paradise in Oudtshoorn before, we expected the same excitement from the reception and willingness to accommodate us. Unfortunately when we asked to be moved to our old room they refused to help. They did not mention that the room that we received had space for four to sleep in as we had to book two dorm beds extra which was quite unnecessary, as we were a party of four and willing to share the four sleeper room, had we known. Other than that we still love this place.

We only stayed two night but we really enjoyed the hostel. We were warmly welcomed and the whole atmosphere during our stay was really homy. There is also a nice fire place and bar to chill! We can only recommend staying there for some time :)


A nice place to stay in Oudtshoorn. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a cool bar and offer ostrich egg for breakfast. The hostel is very clean and well maintained. It is conveniently located in the centre of Oudtshoorn. They do funny tours by bicycle and car and willingly help you organising your other activities. If you're on BAZ bus, they arrange pick ups. Can definitely recommend it.
