    The best Backpackers I have ever visited by a country mile! Felt more like staying in a B&B than a backpackers. (Just with bunk beds) :-) Stunning location, beautiful interior in every room of the whole house. Everything clean and tidy. Very friendly and helpful staff. If I could give it a 6 star rating on Google maps I would have done so.

    Great hostel, that felt like a luxury lodge. In a safe neighbourhood and with good facilities. Would recommend staying here if you visit PE. Did the day safari to Addo with Elvis which I can also recommend doing.

    They were waiting for me and check in was super easy! I was upgraded to a super nice room ( not full because of covid I suppose) with tea coffee making facilities and a balcony with a seaview. The bathroom was good and all the linen was super clean, the bed mattress was excellent. The place in all is comfortable and well equipped, quiet though walking distance to the beach and cafes and restaurants, minimart. The staff is super nice and they can help you for tours and onward transport.

    This hostel is great for any stay in Port Elizabeth. The city isn't really a touristy place, so I only stayed for 2 nights. There are plenty of travelers coming through, so I met people from around the world. The hostel is in a beautiful lodge-style building that has a homey feel, and it is within walking distance to the beach. The staff are very helpful and friendly, but sometimes I felt like they were a bit overworked. Also, my room lacked security lockers, which is important in South Africa.

    We had to spend Xmas there unfortunately for i us because my husband couldnt drive on a Xmas day and he also needed rest. I was so bored because there is no tv. The place is very nice and organized but where the tv is located you could see that they don't want the visitors to watch it and it's always off

    Nice place to stay in the bay …we were upgraded to a deluxe private room so that was very nice ….the hostel is not the greatest for meeting nee people as the atmosphere is most of the time quiet but it’s a perfect spot to base yourself in PE for a few days It was my third time staying there and I would do so again
