    Thank you for such a wonderful welcome and lovely atmosphere. We also loved the food that is top quality and value for money. We are only sad that we got to stay one night. Next time we will stay longer, as it is top of our list. My daughter who is 14 years loves it too. Thank you 😊 Leila and Indira

    I definitely caught Pondo fever being here - that's a good thing btw! I ended up going back there more than once during my time in SA and will definitely be back. The on site restaurant offers great options for veggies

    First off, the prices that they have on hostel world are wrong... I signed up for $7/night. They made me pay triple that. When I tried to dispute it the lady acted like she didn't understand english. This hostel likes to take your money. They guided hikes are great, the guide himself is a champion. However, you can do these one your own with ease. Overall, great time though. Go check it out. Baz bus? You will be on a local shuttle for 3 hours

    I loved my stay at Amapondo! The hostel has a great atmosphere and excellent vegetarian dishes. The hostel is a bit far from the town and the taxi that was supposed to pick me up at Shell Ultra was many hours late and that wasn't nice. They say they have mosquito nets, but I don't think they do. Be aware, the beds/rooms available on Hostelworld are not the same you'll find in the hostel once you get there. Nonetheless, it's probably the best option if you want to visit Port St. Johns.

    Hostel was fairly tidy and clean with adequate facilities. Very very quiet when we traveled in August so no atmosphere at night in the hostel. We arrived on the baz bus and didn't have a car so activities around port St. John were limited as its 3-4km to the town from the hostel. For baz bus riders the 'hostel shuttle' was not a private shuttle but a local rural taxi which stopped to pick up people at every stop along the way adding around an hour onto the journey.
