    Loved staying here, staff were exceptionally friendly. Relaxing atmosphere with a great vibe. Of all the backpackers in the area, this was easily the best. Will be back very soon!

    Amazing location! Wake up with a lovely ocean view from the dorm, take a two minute walk to drink your coffee on the beach, visit the cool caves next door, wander off to Victoria Bay, come back for a sunset beer and pizza on the deck. Incredible! Short walk from grocery store, ATM, cafes. Must stop hostel along the garden route. However be warned-- must pay for wifi, to borrow the phone, etc. so do all of your trip planning *before* getting to Beach House.

    The staff are so friendly and helpful, the dogs are lovely, felt like a family! Beautiful location, so amazing to wake up right on the beach. Definitely take the walk along the railroad tracks to Victoria Bay! Super short walk to the town for groceries, restaurants and cafes. Bonfires and chill vibes every night. Loved it.

    It was AMAZING. The location is the best possible, beach view from the bed and large balcony. Nightly bonfires, great breakfast, nice hikes. Best place to stay in Wilderness. Loved the village and everything around.

    Great and relax place to be for a short time. Next to the nice beach. Comfortable bedroom and good share places. The only thing is that you can't find a lot of stuff to cook your food. Very beautiful view on its surroundings.

    This is a great hostel. But be aware that electricity is not that easy in south africa and also in this hostel there weren't a lot of options for my multiple plug to fit. Since the hostel wasn't full it was still possible to charge phone or power bank but sharing with others. So you should bring a plug for south africa with you. Besides the staff was great, helpful, cooperative and we had a great stay and chats even though we only spend one night. Bazbus is driving here, which is also great!

    Plus side: amazing views of the beach from the dorms and so close to the beach However, the atmosphere was dead (although it was winter), no one speaking to each other. The worst thing was how stingy they were- only giving 20 minutes of free wifi every 12 hours, otherwise you have to pay more and everything costs: breakfast, phonecalls, towels etc. Also super cold with nothing to do in the evening (10 mins walk from the town), and no organised group activities.

    Only had 2 things to choose from on the menu pizza or falafel. No common area only the outside restaurant but not good if it's raining. Wouldn't accept credit cards for bar or restaurant it's ok

    Zero atmosphere. Huge dorms would be much better if they could separate them or divide them. The lady running the place has a rather poor attitude.
