“Lovely stop along the west coast ”
Reviewed 26 March 2016 via mobile

We came on our Familymoon and stayed here for 2 nights. The host was extremely Accommodating, the place and rooms were clean, lovely place to stop, better than some BnBs. Highly recommended. Will visit again. Felt very secure, the little stone room we stayed in was nice and cool during the hot nights.

Stayed March 2016, travelled with friends

A great location for a stop along the west coast, its very reasonably priced. With a range of room types there is something for everyone at Jacobs Bay Backpackers. You can cook in their kitchen or eat out at the local hotel or coffee shop (which is in walking distance).

We only planned to stay one night but after a day of travelling we made our way back for a second night.

Thanks for the great stay! We hope to be back one day - a beautiful part of the country.

Room Tip: The stone cottage is a cute double or triple room.

We used the backpacker's camp as a camp site for four nights. Stayed in the "Stone House" and shared the communal kitchen and bathrooms/shower. Great atmosphere with the hostest with the mostest - Pixie! This is not a graded establishment, so don't expect Egyptian 500 thread count cotton sheets. Good value for money if you are in the area - close to the bay and 15 minute drive from most other attractions. Staff are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our down to earth stay at the backpakers. Great for groups of four and more!

Me and my group of 24 people stayed at this backpackers for a weekend and we had the most amazing time ever. All of them were still talking about this place 2 days after we left. The staff were extremely warmhearted and helped where they could. To all the new guests, ENJOY!

Jacobs Bay Backpackers is not only an amazing place near the beach to spend some time but it is also run by some absolutely fabulous people. They were beyond hospitable, making sure I had everything I needed and more, and showed me a wonderful time. If you are going to be in Jacobs Bay, don't miss out on this totally unique and beautiful spot!
