We arrived here to a warm welcome and a tour of a very neat and clean place. After a day's cycling, the pool and Lapa were a welcome sight. The rates are really good for the kind of facilities you have access to, and the owner makes you feel right at home. Their dog, Newton, will accompany you for a...

We camped at the back of this hostel and loved it. Friendly owners, great facilities and very affordable. Good company and a great location. Betty's Bay has a good beach, lots of surfing and fun to hang out.

We stopped over in Betty's bay during a week long trip around the Cape and it was exactly what we needed. After about 5 hectic days of visiting every Wine farm we could lay our hands on and clocking enough miles to get us back to Joburg, Bayside offered us a chance to slow down, relax, have a beer and...

Bayside is a perfect location is you wanna relax and be away from the hussle of Cape Town. Garth and Olly are spot on and always helping out where ever possible, Newton the dog is pretty ace too. Stunning views and a comfortable bed which also helps!

The perfect place for backpackers. I was surprised to find this kind of place in such a small town however Betty's Bay has a lot to offer. The largest South African penguin colony can be found here along with amazing hikes and trails that will lead you to oasis with waterfalls. Other backpackers or travelers came through and the vibe...

I arrived at Bayside quite by accident. One of those accidents that turn out for the best. I was met by Ollie, booked into a dorm room which was clean, the double beds were comfortable and I could sit in an upright position instead of doubled over. The showers and toilets were clean and the swimming pool sparkling throughout my...

Bayside Beach House has amazing views over Betty's Bay and the ocean. The place itself is decent - good kitchen, bathrooms, and dorms. Wifi works well. The place is clean but not immacualte. Prices are reasonable. Oliver, the owner, knows the area quite well. I didn't give it five stars for two reasons: first, the door on the dorm does...
