The overall stay was great and we were happy. A warning to anyone who needs their sleep though - people arrive and make a bit of noise outside the place for the sedgeway tours starting at 7am - this can be heard from the rooms above and woke us almost everyday but we didn't mind. The only suggestions we have...

Clean facilities, big kitchen, option of ordering breakfast, friendly staff, good service, numerous activities that staff will book for you. Shower with cold water after 11 PM, beds could be a bit softer.

We stayed in a tent because there were no rooma available. The hostel itself is nice and its in a safe area, the staff is very nice and helpful. But I wouldnt stay in a tent again. Bathrooms could also be a bit cleaner

Our party of 8 had a very pleasent stay in the Tsitsikamma backpackers camp. We enjoyed a great breakfast, had comfy sleeping conditions out of the rain and a place to put our goodies in a fridge. If you like to rough it a bit this is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the beautiful areas around Storms River....

This is the most green and environment lode i met since my trip. Even the staff wear green t-shirts. They really care about environment. They are very helpful and arrange a taxi for you if you need one for your excursions. "The Big Tree" is from walking distance of this nice lodge.

Tsitsikamma backpackers is a chilled out. The staff are very friendly. There was space to make your own food. There was a games area including pool table.

We stayed for just one night before we started the Otter Trail. We were super happy with the accommodation (safari tents in big garden with plenty of green grass, hammocks and space to relax). The showers/toilets (individual cubicles) were super clean with hot water. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. Storms' River Village is really quaint/pretty. Lots to...

We were a group of 8 hikers who stayed at the Backpackers overnight after completing the Tsitsikamma Hiking Trail. We found the staff quite helpful. The venue was clean and the accommodation pretty much what we expected...comfortable and relaxing. We stayed in the tented area. The hammock is a must to just lay in and let the world go by....
