This lovely hostel is situated on the beach which is spectacular! Its has a fun chilled vibe with a great bar, pool table, an open fire and offers awesome house made wood fire pizzas for R85. The doors are large and very popular with full length widows overlooking the beach. The staff are lovely and very funny. My only downfalls...

I stayed here for three nights and had the best time. The owners are lovely and make you feel so well looked after. Rooms were clean and tidy and the location is perfect. Just a short walk into the village and to the beach. Best hostel in Wilderness.

The best location in Wilderness! Really enjoyed the stay. Very close to the beach. Loved the character of the place. Affordable accommodation for travelers. You need to see it to believe it #clichèoftheday

The best about the Beach House in Wilderness is the great beach view, especially in the dorms. The rooms were clean. Unfortunately there are no bathrooms/toilets upstairs, so you have to wal down to get there. The prices for surfboard rental are affordable (ZAR 125 board+wetsuit) and the pizzas are good. Visit the Caveman when you stay there, its not...

We stayed at the Beach House for the nights before and after a seven day hike. Nice clean dorms with comfortable bunk beds. The private rooms also look good but none were available on the nights that we were there. Great position close to the beach and an easy walk into the town. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

This backpackers was always clean and has a really good spot near the beach with amazing views. However, you have to pay for the wifi (if you want more than 20 mins), there were no plug sockets in the downstairs dorm and there was no food being served in the evenings (which was advertised on their website). There were also...

Great views...actually unbeatable. Helpful fun staff especially the bar staff. Pool table. Tv. Great dorm rooms. Clean bathroom. Lots of local activities. Camp fire. Bbqs and pizzas done weekly. I would recommend with how busy it gets, you need lockers for valuables. Plus free wifi. Backpackers need trip adviser and tinder lol (hence not full stars but loved the place...

Whilst I was, sadly, only able to spend two nights at the Wilderness Beach House, the accommodation was very comfortable and the amenities more than adequate, The owner,Annie, and her staff super friendly and helpful, and the homemade breads and pizzas and a chicken curry absolutely delicious..

“If you're in the dorm, avoid the rooms closer to the doorway, as it gets noisy when guests are going in and out to the bathroom etc.”
