Robertson Backpackers
Reviewed 31 July 2017

Check in at 14:00 - Friendly host and showed us around. Secure parking provided. There is braai facilities and they provide free wood for guests. Can take your own drinks as well. Self catering. Will definitely recommend the Garden suites. We had the rooms with shared bathrooms. Nothing wrong with the room itself but the bathrooms wasn't great at all. The braai area is very nice with nice vibes. The Backpacker is located in the residential area which is very quite and peaceful. I won't recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the garden suites

My first time staying in a backpackers and Robertson Backpackers made a great impression. Clean, welcoming, homey and hospitable.
We stayed in the room with the ensuite and it was perfect.
I will absolutely be going back!

Besides the mozzies eating me like a candy bar, I had a lovely stay. It was clean, safe, friendly, affordable and a friendly place to stay. I really enjoyed that it was a quiet place with no loud music or rowdy people. Staff were helpful and very accommodating.

We stayed in the garden suites, the room and bathroom were clean and had everything we needed. It was great to come home to a dip in the pool and enjoy a cold beer in sun trapped garden.
The owners were very accommodating and able to provide us with breaky at late notice.
We also appreciated the book of local information in the room, as well as the secure parking available.
Would highly recommend and would visit again.
You do need a car for convenience as it would be a walk to town.
