We had a nice stay in Backpackers Paradise. The location is pretty good : close from many restaurants and a small mart. In April, we could get a (non-free) breakfast. You can also get dinner in the hostel if you book it before 5pm. Room was clean and quite quiet (as for every backpackers place, there is always a good party in the common part ;) ). Be aware that the laundry is actually not inside the hostel


We had a great time, staff is really nice and helpful and evenings at the bar were fun! Would definitely stay there again!


The rooms don't seem to be very clean but the hostel is definitely worth a visit! Awesome breakfast (not included)


Amazing welcome and such helpful staff/ owners. So many highlights of South Africa not to be missed near this hostel, great food, only clean hostel I found in South Africa with ample charging points that won't electrocute you! Don't miss this part of SA if your backpacking


Had a wonderful time at the hostel. Staff went out of their way to assist - always with a smile.Were never fazed by the numbers of persons present or the requests made.
