Had the most relaxed long weekend away with friends. The host Dan was so helpful and friendly and went out of his way for anything we asked. The views and hikes are breath takingly beautiful. The self catering rooms are well kitted and very comfy.

The peace and quiet that surrounds this place is unmatched anywhere. You are alone in the forest to enjoy the waterfalls. Lucky to have seen the cape parrot and multiple Knysna Turaco’s. Staff is friendly and helpful. Lots of Samango monkeys around which was amazing

Had a good stay at this establishment. My family and I stayed in the Hobbit Room which had everything we needed including a fire place to keep warm. The pizza and craft beer was really good . Bonga and Themba are really friendly and awesome . We couldn't fill the bath with water due to the drought but we could still take pictures. We will definitely be returning.

We stayed at the backpackers before and after we did the 6 day Amatola hike. We pulled out earlier and decided to stay longer. We enjoyed the vibe - everyone was very friendly. Pizzas and craft beer is a must! The cliff bath was closed dud to the drought.

The place was simply amazing, from the amazing stuff at the front desk to the friendly cleaning stuff. The views from the bagpackers are spectacular and the hike to the “big tree” is unmatchable. This was one of the best weekends so far.
