Overall Hermanus is living on it's name and reputation. In my opinion it is overpriced so well worth a day trip from cape town to see the whales but staying in the town is over rated and really expensive. When people don't need to work hard to get tourists in the door service standards drop and i found that across the board with everybody except the lovely herman from walker bay adventures who runs the sea kayakes and other tours. Also the chap that runs fat bike tours was very helpful.

Especially the staff is really friendly and has a lot of recommendations. The breakfast (free) is also great.


Best hostel in Hermanus! Stuff is friendly and helpful! You can feel that they want you to have a good time in Hermanus. They organized a cheap transfer for me. Free breakfast is delicious and it is a clean and safe place. They have a nice jacuzzi (with hot water) which you can also use at night.
