    This was a great place to stay as a family. We took the Kings House and it was perfect for us as a family of 4 but could have easily fitted a couple more in.

    I was skeptical initially as this is a backpackers and we were a family, but I'm so glad we decided to choose this place instead of a Hotel. We all had such a great experience.

    A warm, friendly, laid back and interesting place to stay. Loads going on every day and night. Walks, surfing, drumming, local village evenings the list goes on .... all delivered by passionate, wonderful staff. We extended our stay here and had three brilliant surf lessons all of us getting up under the expert guidance we received.

    Dave and Bels have done such a great job with Coffee Shack. It is a brilliant backpacker set in one of the most beautiful places in South Africa and the world. But wait, there is more! I do not think I have come across a backpacker in the world that gives so much back to the community. It is pretty amazing what they have done- the school, the clinics, the jobs they generate, the empowerment, the volunteers. Definitely visit this place when you are in South Africa. It is just brilliant.

    Lovely food and wonderful staff in a beautiful location is what makes this place so very special! With a beachfront location in Coffee Bay, you do not want to miss this place. Being in the evening chill by the bar with drinks, playing some pool and on some nights, the partying can get crazy! Otherwise, it is a wonderful place to just chill and enjoy the beach. They offer daily activities you can join in to keep yourself busy if you like as well and I actually managed to stand up once while surfing, which is a huge thing for me! Great stay.

    The Coffee Shack was the ideal base for exploring the beautiful Wild Coast. As we liked it quiet, we asked for a double room on the other side of the river and this was perfect for us. We loved everything, from sleeping in our own rondavel which was spacious and nicely furnished, sharing clean toilets and showers nearby, and having a fully equipped kitchen and braai for self-catering. To reach the main area with restaurant, bar, reception and free Wi-Fi, we crossed the river which was fun. We had to watch for the tides but that was never a problem. They serve excellent cappuccino and of course meals. There are daily activities to choose from, but you can do your own things too. From the moment we arrived, we knew this place is competently managed by genuine hosts who do not only have their guests in mind but more importantly their local community! We recommend you for this. It made our stay even more enjoyable!

    A great place to stay, with its cozy atmosphere and very friendly staff. They serve delicious food and if you are up for some drinks at night, that is the place to be. They provide a lot of activities, such as surf lessons and village tour. It was well worth a visit.

    We have only been here one night but Coffee Shack is a really nice place. They have a great chill out area where you can also have breakfast and dinner together with everyone. The bar with cold beer and a lot of shots is right next to it. They also have a pool table. The staff is friendly and does all kind of day tours. The sea with nice beaches is right at the backpackers.
