Stumble Inn Backpackers Lodge

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Stumble Inn is an easy going hostel with lots of upbeat energy. As the number one established hostel (1994) in the winelands, they ensure your stay is remarkable. With their handy little map of Stellenbosch, it's easy to discover the funky spots. The hostel has everything the traveler could need - including a swimming pool satellite TV, great cappaccinos and friendly staff. Free Wifi.

Stumble Inn is spread over two houses, so one way or another, there is a quiet corner to crawl into or a party to join. Two kitchens and a great BBQ area ensure ample space for self-catering and the long awaited espresso machine creates the perfect cure for any hangover.

With 17 000 students, over 80 restaurants and pubs and based in the center of the wine producing area, the recipe is fun, beauty and adventure.

A great nightlife (all within walking distance) and a youthful atmosphere ensure that a backpackers visit to SA's second oldest town will be remembered. Only a short distance from Cape Town, Stellenbosch is the ideal place to recover from big city blues and perfect for that stopover before arriving in Cape Town. The fantastic, affordable wines that are produced all around Stellenbosch and the myriad of ways available to explore this scenic mountain region, ensure that your backpack will carry away at least one bottle for later consumption. Take a bicycle and cycle around, use your hired car to its best potential or take an organised tour. Walking is also an option for the more energetic. Fantastic hiking abounds in the mountains around Stellenbosch with some classic routes. The downhill mountain bike trails are a dream for adrenaline junkies. Trout fishing is good in the numerous dams and horse riding is available from numerous professional operators. Historical and cultural attractions also abound. These include museums, architecture, galleries, amphi- theatres, cinemas and live music.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Close to the centre of the city. A big room with also a kitchen and shower available, only dirt and old. Lights didn't work.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I was there with six other girls and a lot of us got bug bites of some sort. We're thinking it may be ant bites or bed bugs because they don't itch but I have several red bumps all over my legs. So cleanliness was not at it's best. That was my only complaint though.
