Family Run for Everyone

Come home to this family run hostel, where personal attention is the order of the day. Backpackers Paradise is a must-visit destination! The main hostel building has an amazing sunset balcony from where both the coastal Outeniqua and the skyscraping Swartberg Mountain ranges form an idyllic view.

The hostel is within walking distance of local restaurants, museum, supermarkets, wildlife ranch and banks. Well organised daily activities with Joyrides Cycle Tours ensure an unforgettable experience in the Little Karoo! Backpackers Paradise offers amazing discounts to all the local attractions, bicycle rentals, meals, a shuttle service and loads of freebies – be sure to enquire at reception. There is a coffee shop on the premises and fully-licenced bar with pool table (set away from the accommodation so no party noise for sleep hungry bodies).

With accommodation options ranging from shared dorm rooms to luxury en-suite units, you can be sure to find the best suited option to rest after an exciting day in and around Oudtshoorn. You can relax with friends (or meet new ones) during dinner or next to the fire while enjoying a drink served by friendly staff.

Backpackers Paradise is neatly appointed and great value for money – perfect for a stay while exploring the area.
