Brown Sugar Backpackers

Johannesburg, South Africa

There is everything on offer in this hostel, everything from pub lunch menu to posting postcards on your behalf. The staff are helpful but not overly friendly. Tours available, free breakfast and good wifi. The house is massive and there are plenty of lounge areas. The atmosphere was lacking a bit but it's hard to tell if that was because of the people there at the time. It's a great place to spend a few days relaxing in the middle of a trip.

ONCE in Cape Town

The hostel is really well equipped and cleavily thought out. There isn't any real atmosphere between guests probably because it still has a very hotel feel about it. It would be a really good place to go to if you weren't travelling alone but if you are travelling alone then there are far better options. The hostel would be really good if the dorm rooms weren't so small. The four person dorm rooms are tiny and you can't really have two people packing their bags at the same time.

Thank you for your positive criticism. While you felt the rooms were small, we hope you enjoyed our extra large beds and ensuite Bathrooms? When planning our hostel we thought this would be key to a great nights sleep. We also have a daily free tour/ activity for individual travelers to get to know each other and make new travel friends, as well as the local cafe where you can meet Capetonians. We hope to see you back in the future, and hope you had a great time in South Africa.

Long Street Backpackers

Cape Town, South Africa

It's a good spot, close to Long Street but also far enough away. It's walking distance from Table Mountain and Long Street. The staff are really cool and the bar is set up for people to meet. I met some really cool people there and always had fun. It's not a party hostel so you don't get the dickheads who go to those hostels but everyone seems up for a beer. The two issues are the wifi which is free but terrible and the boss who occasionally visits during the day and ruins the vibe a bit.

It is as good as a hostel can by in Knysna. It's a sleepy town where people in the hostel are just passing through. You can have fun at night with the staff and the other guests. The staff try their best to create a good atmosphere and they do pretty well. The Wifi is good, it's clean and the people are friendly. It's a solid hostel and if you're travelling through Knysna or just looking to relax for a few days, it's a good choice.

Lungile Lodge beachfront backpackers

It's a good hostel, the best you can hope for in PE. I'm not sure what you're trying to be close to in PE so I gave it an excellent for location. It's near the beach, it's a relatively safe area where you can walk around but it's a fair distance from the nearest supermarket. If you can't find someone to have a beer with you can have a beer with the staff who are friendly and don't mind a drink. You won't be disappointed or delighted but it's a good place to stay.
