    This place is awesome! A little seclusion right in town, with enough privacy, security, and such friendly service. I can't wait to go back! No need to even look at other accommodation options in Oudtshoorn. Thank you for making Karoo Soul Backpackers a wonderful experience for me and my wife this December.

    Karoo Soul Backpackers is not a backpackers...! It is so beautiful, beds are highly comfortable (stayed in a dorm) and the place just has this very welcoming feel. They do offer discounts for all the things to do in the area (ostrich farm, cango caves) and give very nice recommendations. Book this place over Backpackers Paradise for sure!

    Everything was perfect. The only only problem was that there were no private toilets, so you have to walk through the hall to take a shower.

    Lovely fresh, good quality linen. Bathrooms, rooms and house were all clean. Our room was next to the kitchen which was unfortunately very noisy. Kitchen could be bigger for the amount of people the place can host. Lovely facility, gorgeous swimming pool and outside fire pit area. Staff were friendly and efficient. Discount vouchers offered for selected activities in the area.

    Was a bit sad and soulless when we stayed. Also we were in the outbuilding room rather than the main house and the main house would have been nicer. Staff/main lady was helpful and friendly. I felt very safe staying here. I wouldn't walk around Oudtshoorn in the dark though.
