We spent a week at Shark Shack in Dec 2021. And had a blast the manager and owner were both very friendly and hospitable and made our stay extra special. There was enough privacy to do our own thing but we were always welcomed with open arms to evening braais and a quick dop on the stoep. Facilities clean and the back packers is in the absolute perfect spot to gain quick access to beaches, restaurants, and awesome fishing spots by foot.

Mosselbay has so many activities - shark cage diving, zip lining over the ocean, surfing… we got stuck in straight away thanks to Arthur (Owner). This backpackers has a community of its own, we all had a brai together and socialised all evening. The bedroom dorms are basic but what more do you need? Will definitely be back!

My son stayed there whilst he is still finding his feet and needed affordable accommodation, the manager/owner is very helpful in assisting my son. I am grateful that there are still people that take personal care of their fellow humans. Thank you for taking care of my son during his stay there.

It was a very social and enjoyable few days. The rooms were always clean and I slept like a baby. Great services from the manager, and owners. Very close to the point, and there are some awesome restaurants very close by.

Had a very bad experience. Could not sleep for 3 days as matriculants did drugs, had sex and vomited in my dorm room. There was no supervision from the hostels side regarding this. I FELT UNSAFE AND DISGUSTED.
