The hostel is horrible. No atmosphere and kind of dirty. 90 % of the people are there for a long-term stay. They literaly live there and we didn't feel good at all. We can't recommend this place.


When i get a chance to relax after a long few weeks working non stop I always try and visit a new place along the coast in lovely South Africa.I just came to Ballito by accident and its a lovely place so green and sunny like Ireland . i stayed at Ballito Backpackers and it was a joy , the staff are so helpful Its a big hostel with lots of room..very clean, safe and comfortable. It has in the area lots of cafes bars as well as the lovely beach five hundred yards away.I will be back for sure.
