Explore the revamped young heart of Port Elizabeth. Jikeleza Backpackers is just a few streets away from buzzing nightlife. Clubs range from hip hop, African house to radio funk. Lounge in on street couches at the Cafés, sip cocktails or chow down on local fare. Visit live music and theatre shows, banks, post office, pubs and 24 hour shops. All you fancy is a brisk walk away.

After a long day on the road, relax with a local movie, or chill in the tranquil shady garden and slap a steak on the braai. Sleep in sunny airy dorms/rooms or quaint wood units in the garden wander through the history of Olde Worlde Central, experience trendy art meccas and meet the locals. The friendly staff will help you book or get advice on anything to anywhere.

Jikeleza Backpackers is an International Backpackers Hostel. You'll find it safe clean and comfortable offering a true African experience and South African hospitality. It is designed by travellers for travellers to meet in a home away from home atmosphere. The hostel has a reputation for making you feel welcome and is enthusiastically run by the owners and their manager. The old building with all its gleaming wood and warm, atmospheric charm is a stone’s throw from everything. The owners are fanatical about cleanliness and all the staffs are friendly and go out of their way to help you. The Backpackers is set right in the heart of the old historical Port Elizabeth city and right on the Donkin Heritage walking trail.

Jikeleza Backpackers offers you a variety of accommodation. There are single rooms, double rooms with double bed and twin rooms with two single beds, three, four and five bed family/group rooms, dorms and camping. The hostel is never crowded and their dorms only have a maximum of seven beds and at times are smaller. The dorms are mixed, both male and female, and may not be suitable for some local holiday makers who are not conversant with traveling etiquette. The kitchen is fully fitted so that you can whip up a quick meal or cook up a storm.

Jikeleza Backpackers has its own in-house travel desk and is the best place to get advice on anything to anywhere. They can arrange day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, lion safaris to Schotia, city and township tours, Baz Bus and Intercape Inter City Bus tickets, historical and heritage tours, transfers and overland trips and tours anywhere in Southern Africa. They also have specially priced accommodation and tour packages for backpackers and you can save quite a lot if you take one of these.

Why Cora Terrace; Not often will you have the opportunity to stay in a National Monument! This beautiful Georgian home was built in the 1850’s to house soldiers guarding the port of Port Elizabeth. Situated in picturesque surroundings, you can walk to the Old Fort, the Donkin Memorial and St. George’s botanical gardens. It is about 5 minute quick drive to the beach. For the sporting enthusiast, it is within walking distance to St. George’s cricket stadium, and about a 10 minute drive to the new Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Accommodation ranges from private twin and double rooms, family rooms, and dormitories. Bathrooms are communal as no bedrooms are en-suite. We have self-catering facilities suitable for the individual and group. Alternatively, why don’t you rather let us prepare the meals? On request we offer home cooked meals that can be adapted to your requirements.

Do you want guidance on activities when in Port Elizabeth. Once your booking is confirmed, we will help you design activities to make your trip to Port Elizabeth exciting and memorable. This is at no additional cost, although you would need to pay relevant entrance fees where required. Should you wish to have guided tours, we will also put you in contact with local, registered specialists.

Remember to book early in advance as we do get busy during school terms and during events. We regret that due to the stairs, physically disabled guests cannot be accommodated.
