                                          Comfortable and friendly. The showers in the front house are rather small so can be difficult to prevent clothes becoming wet, but they work. The kitchen is well supplied and roomy. Staff are very pleasant and friendly. The fish braai was excellent

                                          This is a lovely place to stay we enjoyed it very much. Very clean and everything you need. If it is possible I will go their again. Very friendly people, near the beach. It was more than I expected

                                          My husband had some work to attend to and I decided to join him and booked at Cape Agulhas Backpackers. I was not disappointed as it provided what we were looking for, self-catering but with so much more benefits.The accomodation was clean and the decor and design added to the ambience of the place. When we arrived, it was during a storm. by the time we stepped out of our room the next day, the entire area had been cleaned up. The staff were so friendly, and treated us like old friends.I would definitely recommend Cape Agulhas Backpackers to friends and family and should I come to Struisbaai...

                                          We had an absolutely wonderful stay! The staff were SO welcoming and Garth kept our glasses full and the fire roaring at night. He was also very informed about the area and gave us plenty of info of where to go and what to see. The 4 resident dogs (Chocolate, Lava, Peanut & Milo) and Poppie the parrot made sure we were safe and entertained at all times and the accommodation was clean and gorgeous! We would definitely recommend it to anyone! Ryland, Lorraine & Kyle
