Travel Blogs from Coffee Bay

Again we were lucky the hostel is so good and social cause our afternoon was spent there.Also sundays is free dinner...yay! so we had a beef stew with rice and some more yummy Xhosa bread.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSugarloaf Backpackers Coffee Bay
This is a family run establishment with a good vibe and the bonus is it is quieter then the other backpackers in the area. So you can party at the others and then come home to sleep. The food was delicious and definitely worth the price. Staff goes out of their way to help you anyway they can. Place was clean and secure for being in Coffee Bay.
