Hermanus Backpackers lies in the centre of town, close to the shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and the famous cliff paths for free whale watching in season. We have all the room types you'll need from dorms to studios, double ensuites and family rooms, duvets & linen included. Funky bar, free pool table, internet, beach shuttle, free breakfast, swimming pool and all the tv options in case the weather turns foul and you're trapped! Reception opens at 7.30am and closes around 10pm. There's a security guard on duty every night to keep an eye on the cars, but Hermanus is a safe place. We can sleep around 50 people in the main building and just around the corner, about 40m away, we've just opened a fab little extra spot.... kinda B&B like, but you'll have complete access to all the facilities at the backpackers too, best of both worlds! Security gate access code given during check-in and a map of town with a list of all the activities too. Clean, safe & fun, welcome to Hermanus Backpackers! Smoke outside... or in the bar!
Great White Shark cage diving, this is the speciality of Hermanus Backpackers and one of the main reasons people flock to stay with us. The amazing deal offered is R895 per person and includes everything you'll need for the day, but not transport. If you don't have your own car we can easily organise the shark shuttle for you. Each person booked on the trip gets either a free nights accommodation in a dorm or R100 off the cost of their private room. No diving experience or qualifications are needed for this trip. Price rise on 1st April 2010, R995 per person. Make sure you book this trip in advance as it's very popular and we need advance warning...
