You cannot pay with credit card and they have no licence to sell alcohol in the hostel.

Hi Monika, Thanks for taking the time to give us a good review. It's a shame about the alcohol thing, we might be able to apply eventually, but in the meantime, the town centre is close and easy for people to buy their own wine & beer for drinking in our 'bar', this also makes it much less expensive than buying from us :-) Credit card option would put the prices of accommodation up, the banks charge around 3.5% to make a transaction in SA, so we thought we'd rather keep the prices low.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was very full of young boys when we were there and the staff was able to keep them under control graciously. It was amusing.

Thanks so much for the lovely review, we really appreciate it. I know the time you stayed we had the young cricketers here, thanks for being such good sports about them all being here at the same time. Some of those boys will represent South Africa one day, so you'll be able to say you know them when they were only youngsters :-) Kind regards, Hayley & crew, Hermanus Backpackers

We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 in the cottage around the corner and 1 in the main house. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. The kitchen facilities were good and the common areas were big enough for everyone. The wifi was generally good but could be slow at times. It is only a short walk to town so is a good location. There is parking directly outside of both buildings. The security was good, this was our first stop and we weren't worried at all. This was a great hostel!
