Excellent place with a friendly welcome from Vera. Kestell is a great location for exploring the northern drakensburgs. Be sure to try some of the amazing home-made jam with breakfast.

This place isnt really a backpackers, just a house in a small town. about 40 minutes from all the hikes. Staff are friendly, kitchen fine, could do with a couple more bathrooms. Nothing to do in the town. Probably the closest hostel to the hikes though so if thats what your there for then a nice place to stay

It is unfortunate that some visitors find the atmosphere at Karma Backpackers uninspiring. We pride ourselves that we are a small, quiet, almost family establishment and that our visitors find it relaxing when they spend time here. Others, occasionally, prefer a youth-hostel type of atmosphere, something other establishments are able to provide.

Owner hosted us really good, upgraded our room to bigger one for the same price. The room was big and comfy. Beds were good and you can spend your evening in the garden under the peach tree. Feels like you are at home. And you can get all the information you need about the hikes and some other places to visit.

The stay was very short but perfect for our requirements. It was worth the price and the hostess was very helpful. I would definitely go back there and had a very pleasant stay.
