Word of Mouth Backpackers is a small and personal hostel, centrally located in the city. We offer dorm beds, single, double and triple rooms, most with comfy matrasses and duck down pillows. We have ADSL internet and a public phone. We also have lock-up safes, luggage storage. Over the last 10 years we have earned the reputation as one of the most secure hostels in Africa!
You can book a variety of exciting day trips, tours and overland adventures while relaxing in the sun. We can also secure cheap rental cars for you. Should you need anything else, all you have to do is ask and we will shop around for the best deals for you. I'll be surprised if we actually have to, after a decade we know what's cooking!
We are located about 10 minutes drive away from the bus/train station, and close to all the shops, restaurants, banks and other amenities. We offer reasonably priced airport shuttles during office hours. We don't offer free pick-ups from the bus/train station.
All the staff at Word of Mouth speak fluent English and are very friendly and helpful. We look forward to having you stay with us soon!
