Hi Laetitia, thanks for the lovely reviews, we really appreciate it :-) Hermanus Backpackers xx


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!


Great for the very good location and great welcome. Very helpfull and ressourcefull. Thanks
