The hostel is a good stay if you want a cheap accomadation in a expensive town. For me a Backpackers should have doorms. So i think you should change your name...
The walls in this hostel were like paper and you heared every word of people who are staying in the bordering rooms.

The garden and veranda are very nice and the atmosphere is very nice with chicken and dogs walking around. My bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The owners are very friendly and will help you if you have questions. Last but not least i think nowadays any hostel should have free wifi....

We booked an ensuite on a weekend. Lots to see in this lovely town. Quiet location of main road. Friendly hosts make you feel welcome. Cosy fire in lounge area. Bedroom was nice with good shower. Tip: avoid being next to the lovely veranda because it is where the smokers gather.

We stayed for 2 nights in a double en suite room, room was lovely, clean and comfortable, absolutely loved the tin bath & bucket idea for shower and sink. Only downside to the rooms are the thin walls. Kitchen facilities are good. Common area lovely, just a shame there's no bar. You do have to pay for wifi but this isn't an issue at all to us, R30. Stephanie and her partner were lovely, very helpful & friendly. The horse trek that is on offer through the backpackers is also a good experience! Would stay again, thank you!

We stayed at Swellendam backpackets for only one night. ok backpackers if you are desperate for a bed. Got very little sleep due to chickens going off from 3 am. No laundry facilities that can be used by the guests. Internet is extra also.

Nice accommodation but the management is not involved with the guests.
The rooms are small but clean and cosy.
Internet is available but not for free. There is no bar in the hostel.
Dinners are not being served however you can cook by yourself.
