This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Observatory Backpackers were excellent. Their staff were extremely welcoming and helpful with recommendations for local points of interest and arranging airport transfers, car hire etc. Also very knowledgeable about travelling in Southern Africa and generally. Rooms, kitchen and facilities are very clean and of a high standard. One of the best places I've stayed at in my entire trip and highly recommended.
