The people of this accommodation were friendly and welcoming. The rooms are affordable and mosquito repellent. Hot water and cold were functioning with kitchen appliances readily available. Whenever l needed services at anytime, the host was a great help. Thank you.

Average for young people seeking adventure. We were a couple & it did not satisfy our need for a romantic stay. Also very misleading post of a beautiful house with a tranquil setting on the website is misleading as the rooms are no where close to the image portrayed in the advert.

I had a very nice stay in hazyview. You get a very nice Room for the price you pay. The showers and toilets were always clean. The outdoor kitchen and the area to eat were very nice, i felt like beeing in a jungle. The staff is very friendly and always there for a chat or a joke. i felt very welcome, and really enjoyed my stay. thank you, and see you next time.

We had so many special moments at Hazyview Adventure Backpackers, we laughed so much with the daughter, Sharon. The place has such a warm and loving feel, so much love and joy. Everyone made us feel right at home. The rooms are incredibly clean for a backpacker. We would rate this backpacker as the top backpacker in Africa.

Dear Quisto I loved my five-day stay at your Backpackers, and will be booking in again, hopefully for longer and in the near future. Your management staff were friendly, helpful, kind, and professional, the place is beautifully maintained, and you’re all very fortunate and clever to be there. THANK YOU. Many thanks again. My visit to you was the first step to restoring my soul and sanity after a horrible time in Cape Town. All the best and I hope to hear from you soon. Ian Hugh

The place is located to most of the Province's places of interest where one can visit. The Lodge is also about 4km from the mall. The staff is friendly and accommodative. The Lodge is located inside of the trees and one gets a feeling that the wild & nature are being experienced live.
