Reviews for iKhaya Stellenbosch Backpackers
There was a a urine smell at the bottom entrance by the reception area.
Good place for those with a tight budget. Centrally located in Stellenbosch. A minute away from the main mall and in the heart of the town.
A warm welcome. Love it
Terrible. The floor was sticky, it smells of stale beer, no direction as to where to go to get the key and check in. We eventually realised it's the barman who's checking the booking while serving beer. Far more pricey than its worth. Avoid like the plague
If you are looking for a good place to sleep overnight, on a budget, then definitely book yourself in. It not a hotel or a guest house so don't expect luxury. The beds are comfortable enough, the kitchen has some utilities and the bathrooms could do better, for starters a double ply toilet paper and a bath towel. I definitely need free Wi-Fi if I'm touring,especially on a budget. You can offer an option of buying food after coming from a touring expedition or backpacking the whole day. Nice neibourhood, tight security, beautiful city overall.
We arrived and immediately saw that the hostel is not like the pictures on their website. The rooms were very cold, the kitchen was basically non existent and the beds were extremely uncomfortable. We did not feel safe in the area either, and when we parked our car at the mall overnight (as per suggestion by reception) we ended up having to pay R150 when we were told it would only be R25. They also allowed a couple to share a bed, which led others in the room to be uncomfortable. For the price, this hostel is not worth it. It is worth mentioning that the bar had a cool vibe and the staff is very nice!
I have stayed at backpackers before and the term shared bathroom means a bathroom shared with others normally in the passage. We had to share a bathroom that was inside someones room where we had to enter someones room and walked in on someone getting dressed in order to use the bathroom. the manager was not very helpfull and said he has a no refund policy.
