This is hands down the best hostel we've ever stayed at. The staff was wonderful. The ensuite double we rented was clean and comfortable and situated in a building with the other ensuite rooms complete with its own lounge and well-equipped kitchen. In the evening everyone still hung out in the main building/bar around the fire so you still got to meet everyone. The vibe was pretty low-key, not your best choice if you are looking for a party.

We stayed only for one night in a doubleroom but we liked it there a lot! Great vibe and atmosphere, an inviting bar & common area and helpful staff! We also really appreciated the free coffee and tea & the very well equipped kitchen. Only minus - the wall in our bathroom was so thin that we could hear every single word that was spoken in the neighbour's room ;)

Beautiful place with awesome vibe. Staff gave great advice on where to go in the area. No complaints - though there are insects in the area at night so remember to shut your windows to prevent being bitten!!

The insects referred by Emily is the normal mosquito. Please have insect repellent handy when visiting south africa during summer season. Also not that we are a malaria free area.

Milo and Coco the Dogs welcomed me happy and friendly, Erin checked me in and provided tons of good recommodations to make as much out of my stay as i could. The bar and lounge are cosy and the staff is more than happy to put some meat for you on the braai (barbecue) Looovely rooms, good bathroom facilities, clean sheats and towels. The kitchen gets a good clean every day. All in one a very inspirativ place thanks to all the love which was put in, the lovely atmosphere and the staff! cu soon!

this hostel is in a good direction to the most southern point of sa. It´s a great place to stay. the only problem was, that we have our room in front of the bathroom, so it was a little bit noisy...

Thank you for the wonderful time! Coming back soon. Cape Agulhas Backpackers has been the hostel highlight of our trip, as always. Please stay as you are and where you are!!!

We were warmly welcome and personally shown around the premises. The rooms and facilities were fresh and absolutely clean. The bar area was big and cosy, the pool was clean and inviting. An open fire was burning in the evening. Do not miss a motorboat trip with the hostel in the morning! There is not much a fence or gate around the premises. The village itself has a lovely white-sandy beach and a vintage harbour with a nice busy little cafe. If you came to relax - this is the place.

For us, it was a beautiful stay there! Staff was very friendly and with our arrival we could chill in the bar. Nice braai area. Very clean! And the Cape Agulhas was one of the most exciting spots on our tour – simply the end of Africa. Everything was much better than we expected. Thank you guys! We will return. 100% pure holidays

Great location close to famous CA 14km beach, lovely hostel with pool, braai, bar, pool table, friendly guests and staff. We had ensuite twin room, had it's own little garden area with table and chairs. Room was clean and comfortable with a great shower! Not much to do, though would recommend pizzas at Bella Luna (?) (booking ESSENTIAL) and a drive down to the actual Cape itself. Plenty of adrenalin junkie options nearby too, if that's your thing.

Not much to do? There is plenty of things to do. We give all the guests a fantastic map of everything what to do normally they will stay 2 days after we explain everything one on one. Boat trips, kayak rentals, kitesurfing lessons. 2 fAB hiking trails, winetastings and we are surrounded by fantastic beaches and nature reserves. You can feed stingrays in the harbour or just lounge in the warm indian ocean. Why need to be entertained if you have nature:)

Super place with the pool and braai faciliities. But You couldn`t drink your own wine inside - only in their bar ... Or outside ... Such rules ...
