    Superb

    We had a wonderful stay at Mossel Bay Backpackers! Close to everything you need and the staff were absolutely lovely. Chill and relaxed atmosphere, it was nice to just chill in the common area. Would definitely book again.

    Fabulous

    05 Mar 2020
    We enjoyed our time at Mossel Bay. The rooms were clean enough. The bathroom not so much. The 4 bedroom dorms are right next to the bar area and they have loud music playing from 7am - 10.30pm all day. It was a bit much. Especially when no-one was around and people were trying to sleep. They also turn Wi-Fi off between 6pm-10pm which was super frustrating as that's when we talk to fanily and friends at home with time difference and also to make plans. Location is great and beds were comfy.

    Our stay at the Mossel Bay Backpackers was comfortable yet somewhat cramped. We enjoyed the pool and outdoor areas, however felt there was no space for safe items. Nevertheless, the staff were welcoming and helpful.

    Staff were helpful, when my bed had been taken, and when the gate hit the car and damaged one panel. Hope they help fix the damage 🙏

    Very Good

    We were initially going to stop in a dorm by the bar, but changed to a much brighter and more welcoming private in the building by reception. The dorms looked much nicer in this section of the property too. The rating is for the private room, which also allows you parking on the premises. Whilst not one of our favourite hostels on our trip for the room, we did have a fun night in the bar, which had a lot of atmosphere - more so than the surrounding bars it seems!

    has a pool, thats cool. also kinda clean, but the light breakfast included is REALLY light. (1 slice of toast, 1 bowl of cereals, coffee/tea - everything else you have to pay for - f.e. per slice of toast...thats overdone i think) staff all in all friendly, huge kitchen.
