Some of our Guests:
I stayed at Hout Bay Backpackers for three weeks and couldn’t have been happier. The staff are all excellent and took great care of myself and the students that were there for a university program. The location is perfect, right across from the beach.
Friendly staff that helped make for a great stay. Recommendations were spot on, with a variety of things to do and see in the area. Definitely check this place out if you are planning on staying in Hout Bay.
100% recommended. My partner and I spent four days and the experience was great. Good atmosphere, share opinions, breakfast, lunch, dinner with other travelers and people from the area.
