Well now. Who could’ve thought this shitstorm was gonna hit our world?


Mossel Bay Backpackers has been a successful youth hostel since 1993. For almost 30 years we have been welcoming friends from around the world – indulging in conversations, sharing memories and stories around the fire while intoxicated on great vibes.

Then lockdown hit – no more travelers or friends for the near (or distant) future.

Yet we still want to share this family run space in a positive way so we pivoted to offer long term stays during, before or after lockdown – and it’s been working great.

Atmosphere is Key

We work hard to offer a positive space in some uncertain times. We don’t allow any riff-raff or sour grapes in the pack. The views are great, the ocean is near and we invite you to take it easy when you want, work hard when you need to and please pay upfront. We have an independently run in-house Deli (Artizaan) and a pizza restaurant (Milliways Pizza) for you to enjoy – and man oh man… Suzaan and Louwkie make delectable meals!!

We have uncapped fiber for your online meetings and many small spaces for privacy – outside in the courtyard, on the sundeck looking out to the Outeniqua Mountains or by the fireplace inside for winter – not that it really gets cold in Mossel Bay!

So come get some work done!

Keep the work flowing after a yoga session by the pool

Or Sit back and read that book you’ve been putting off all year

Or do that course you’ve been checking out for months.
