    Good location within walking distance to shops, restaurants, seafront. Bed so comfortable I would have taken it home with me if it fit into my suitcase. For a backpackers, this is run like an efficient hotel with nice amenities you don't see at most backpackers like a hair dryer. Breakfast was very nice, fresh and tasty. Reception was very friendly, informative and made you feel like family. Enjoyed hanging out in the bar area for a little while talking to other travelers. Liked that there were rules to make everyone's stay enjoyable, but they were not oppressive - just common courtesy things some people may not have learned. Enclosed parking area was very safe.

    Shower nob was worn, afraid it might not turn off (it did) and shower pressure a bit weak. Rest of the bathroom and bed room were top notch. Was not clear if I had a confirmed booking or not before I left on vacation because this location does the confirmation differently. Not sure if there is some way to explain this during the booking process.

    We paid for bed & breakfast but had to leave Backpackers Mossel Bay before breakfast at 6am. Staff were not prepared to offer a packed breakfast due to our early departure or to refund the breakfast money paid. Very disappointing stay, unfriendly staff, expensive room and will definitely not return.

    The facilities were brilliant unfortunately we didn't stay long enough to make use of them. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

    Great staff, very nice location, very quiet, especially considering it's a backpackers place, very nice breakfast. Great value for money.

    Our private room was a tiny bit on the noisy side, as the walls aren't the thickest and our room was located on a busy streetside. No wifi availability in room but only in common room. Even there: weak signal strength.

    I like the room its was clean and nice.

    I didn't like it that I was a backpackers because we thought it should be a normal guesthouse or bed and breakfast.

    Breakfast service, people running the place and location was great! Central and near everything! The website did not reflect the signage out-front which only said Back-Packers and not the name we booked under so this was difficult to find at first. Had it said Backpackers on the web-site we would not have booked this place. Must say it was well worth it! Glad we did and we can really recommend this place as the Back-packers are in the rear of the building so our area was for the B&B only.

    Wi-Fi not available in rooms but available in the dinning-room.

    Great location and facilities (nice pool, sun deck and bar). Good value for money.

    Bathroom needs an update and towels smelled bad.

    Phoned to tell we would be arriving late at 10 pm. They said it was ok however when we phoned at 9pm to confirm were treated like kids and told it was unacceptable and not correct and that she had people waiting for our rooms ( which was not true) if we had not pre paid we would have not used our rooms as the lady on the phone bordered on plain rude. Would not reccommend establishment to anybody as a result of attitude.

    Friendly people. Not expensive. Nice room, but not something rare. If you are looking for a simple room and a nice place to stay, stay here!

    Be reminded that it is not called 'Huis te Marquette' anymore, but Mosselbay Backpackers.

    Didi,a vivacious bundle of energy inducts us into the routine of her establishment and shows us to the room. It is as luxurious and tastefully outfitted as any good hotel room with a big ensuite and French doors onto a north-facing patio with our own table and chairs. To the left a pool sparkles, we must surely be in heaven? The next morning we breakfast like kings in Didi’s dining room, having to decline the cooked offering as we are full from a huge muesli/yogourt/fresh fruit parfait waiting for us. There is also a huge communal area where guests can cook & eat with ocean views plus a friendly beach-bar.

    Friendly staff

    The bed was as hard as a rock, I just as well could've slept on the floor! The curtains are to thin and seethrough to block out the lights from the securitylights around the swimmingpool. We really had no sleep at all due to the above 2 factors.
