The Manager Jaqueline, was racist and disturbed our family by her racist and dehumanizing comments. We only stayed one night, Saturday 11th April 2021. On our arrival she described the lowering of international tourists and the increase in SA tourists as bad. She then started pointing to her skin, as if she was shading in her skin and stated that "those type" of South Africans were the worst- as they were extremely rude and rowdy. She went on for a while, pointing to her skin and dark top- to suggest by her manner that "those" dark skinned South Africans were terrible people. She was very deliberate in not using Racist words, so as not be be heard by people around us. We were highly disturbed by her comments and left her a letter stating that we would be reporting her racist behavior. We are wanting to report her racist attitude and behavior, so as to protect others, who want to support backpackers that are truly diverse and non-racial.…
Wonderful people, and a lovely cosy house. Room was upgraded to the family room for free as it was a quiet season. Bedroom was fresh and bright with an amazing mountain view and a chic bathroom. Also had a private little balcony to have tea on in the morning
What a fabulous weekend. On arrival we were upgraded to a double room with on suit bathroom as their was space available, and what a lovely room it was. Light, clean, ocean themed room overlooking the garden and pool. The backpackers had a laid back, homely atmosphere with all we needed for our stay. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful and provided us with a town map as well as local activity recommendations. Just a short walk to town, nearby restaurants and the sea. So safe and accessible. Not to mention, free parking! We'll definitely be back again! 10/10 if you're looking for an affordable, comfortable, central, relaxed stay in Hermanus!!!
We had a fantastic time at the backpackers. Jacqueline, the manager, is doing fantastic and has so much information on what to do around Hermanus and just an amazing lady. I would definitely recommend the backpackers for your stay in Hermanus!
