The athmosphere in the hostel is great. You really feel at home. The owner Vera Ann and Luther are very hospitable and have great knowledge of the area and recommendations which are off the besten track; e.g Ethiopean restaurant. We will definitely recommend this place to all our friends and family who will be visiting South Africa.

A true home away from home. The owner made us feel so welcomed into her family farmhouse. Try some of her homemade (and award winning) jams and muffins, they're delicious! She knows all the local hikes and tours and can offer you advice and maps for these. A fresh hot water bottle was put in our beds every night- very much appreciated as it can get quite cold at night this time of year. Thank you karma backpackers, we'll be back.
We had an excellent stay at Karma. It's a 45-60 minute drive to the Amphitheatre walk (which is stunning btw), and within 30 minutes of Golden Gate National Park and Clarens. Karma is a very cozy home with a relaxed atmosphere and two very energetic dogs. If you want to do some hiking and experience a guesthouse more than a backpackers, this is the perfect place to do so! Plus the jams are delicious
