One of the best Backpacker accommodations that we have stayed in, on our travels in South Africa. The owner and her staff take a personal interest in ensuring the high standards are maintained and they really deserve the 5* from the Tourist Board. We stayed in a Double ensuite room, which could be comparable to a top end hotel. Highly recommended and excellent value for money.
The room was very basic, damp and cold. The ensuite was a toilet separated with what can only be described as a "blast wall" about 6" thick that really reduced the space to get into the shower, which was further impeded by the badly situated sink. We are average size people and found it difficult to manoeuvre into the shower on a daily basis. The door hinges were hanging off and the general maintenance of the property is poor and it is badly run down. The staff were friendly, but not proactive.
Great location just across from the beach and good welcome from Elvis. The standard of cleanliness was well above average and the team appeared to be on top of this activity constantly. Room was well situated on the ground floor with a good view of the beach. Would recommend a stay st the Backpackers for a relaxing chill out.
