                          We actually rented the entire backpackers,accommodation was great but we had strangers hanging out at the accommodation,not nice to wake up to strangers sitting on the couches when you rent the entire place. Apparently there is accommodation next door,would of been nice if we were told about this.

                          Saltycrax is an awesome backpackers. The facilities are well organized and impeccably clean. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rates very favorable. The backpackers is located within easy walking distance of Blouberg beach, and is close to a main bus terminal, with routes to Cape Town and beyond. There are some reasonable restaurants and take away places close by too. I met some interesting people and the backpackers does a lot to provide entertainment of sorts. The backpackers also provides a base for volunteers, who teach underprivileged children. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would...

                          Comfortable bunker beds and neatly kept bathrooms and kitchen. It was my first time sleeping in a dormitory with other young energetic travellers. I will sure do it again.

                          Salty Crax is an excellent establishment. The place is conveniently located near to shops, restaurants and bars, as well as to the beach front. The place itself is clean and well equipped, with a lapa designed for people to relax and mingle in the evenings over a couple of beers or ciders. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I will definitely go back!
