We stayed in a large room with confortable beds but we were cold the whole time. Even thouh we were given hot-water bottles, it was very cold at night since air came through the door and the house was not heated at all. Otherwise, the house is nice and the kitchen is fully equipped. When we arrived on the Sunday night, the kitchen wasn't clean but fairies came the following morning and everything became spotless.

We had a wonderful stopover at Karma Backpackers, on our way to do the Mont-Aux-Sources 'chainladders' walk from the Sentinel Carpark. Vera-Ann, our gracious host, gave us some very useful information about the hike. Would thoroughly recommend Karma Backpackers.

More like a homestay then a hostel! Warm cosy fires and hot water bottles in beds. Vera Anne is lovely and we highly recommend her delicious breakfast and muffins. Provides fantastic information and easy to follow instructions for anything you'd like to do around drakensberg. The Ethiopian restaurant is a must - cheap, delicious and an experience. The town did seem a bit empty eerie When we arrived on dark but it's homely once your inside by the fire.

Vera Ann and Lucio are very friendly hosts. Staying at Karma Backpackers really feels like visiting family. My stay during the winter was really peaceful and the hiking trails are not crowded at all during that time of the year. Against my expectations I didn't have to freeze at all The owners are well prepared to give you recommendations on activities in the region and you always feel welcome to ask them. Vera Ann's jams are delicious, as are her muffins. So don't miss out the breakfast. Thank

Karma Backpackers was the perfect place to stay. The owner Vera was so friendly, and willing to help with anything we needed. I would definitely recommended it, and stay there again! Thank you Vera for providing a great place for us.

We have been there for just 2 nights and it was really beautiful! It's a nice place to stay with a wonderful garden, also it's really quiet and close to the Drakensberg/ Sentinel Peak etc. We will definitely come back!
