Joy River Backpackers is where you can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stopover in a spectacular natural setting. We are located very close to many of the local tourist attractions and is an ideal place to launch your exploration of the area in a small, uncrowded, and private space. We can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests in house with camping space also available.

Joy River Backpackers has accommodation units 4 units:

1)The Stone House-a self contained unit with 1 bedroom and en suite bathroom and kitchen and lounge with fire place(it gets cold in winter)…4 beds.

2)The Bale House-built from straw bales…2 beds

3)The Grotto-built in local style architecture..2 beds

4)The Bungalow-a traditional rondawel-4 beds.

We charge a fixed rate of R100/bed for all units except the Stonehouse main bedroom at R150/bed.

The latter 3 units are served by external ablutions and a communal kitchen with pizza oven and pub. We make vegetarian pizza and other oven bake dishes at R50/meal.The kitchen is available for self- catering and there is a braai area at no extra cost.

There is plenty of camping space also with it's own supporting ablutions

Our section of the river flows over the very hard erosion resistant Black Reef Quartzite and suited to pothole formation resulting in interesting river cut nooks and crannies in which to take a dip, explore and cool off in.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel is very unique. It is located close to an African village and the Blyde River Canyon. The street to the hostel is horrible. The room, we stayed in, was clean with a nice and clean bathroom. The best thing about the hostel, however, is the host, Heston. He is a very nice and helpful guy, who loves to play the guitar.
If you are not scared to stay in the bush, then you should go and visit Heston.
