Clean and comfortable rooms. Great spot. Close to beach and top restaurants.
Nice location, great chill out area, friendly staff, well-equipped kitchen. Room and bed bit old and not the cleanest. Prepare 2 rand coins for pool table.
We enjoyed our stay at Mossel Bay Backpackers. The room was very comfortable and within walking distance of several nice seaside restaurants.
It was a very nice stay in the backpackers. We got a lot of help and a very good easter meal.
Location, service and amenities - couldn't have asked for better while in Mossel Bay!
