Pros: We loved the old characterful house and the friendly , very knowledgable owners. The hostess provided us with a super breakfast of fruit, muesli and yoghurt as well as freshly baked scones. Fireplace in the lounge.
Cons: The road into and through Hogsback is an a dreadful state so one really needs a sturdy vehicle with high clearance. At the cottage there were no problems. We would have liked to have had more time to chat to the owners.
10.0 Excellent

9.3 Excellent
Pros: It was a quaint cottage. on a very quiet side road. Kids were able to ride their bikes and play in the garden. Norma and Derek were lovely hosts! Derek came in and lit a fire for us.
Cons: The only negative was that the 2 rooms on either side of the cottage had no direct access to the inside of the cottage or bathrooms, except by going outside via the stoep and then inside to go to the bathroom. Luckily it wasn't too cold or it could have been an issue. I don't recall seeing that mentioned on the website?
Elundini Backpackers - Hogsback

9.3 Excellent (35 reviews)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and helpful hosts, interesting village tour to get some idea about life there.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff. Amazing location.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived - a bbq meal ready for us at 11pm! Lovely conversation under the stars, followed by breakfast and a guided hike to Hogsback the next day. We even received a memorable ride back to the property on the back of Lieve’s ute. Accommodation was basic but decent and clean, perfect for restful sleep. This is an authentic special place that is well integrated with the surrounding community and doing good work. Thank you to Lieve and everyone we met at Elundini, our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer.
Cons: It is a choice whether to stay at Elundini or Hogsback. The experience at Elundini was brilliant and could not be better, however my advice would be to leave plenty of time to explore Hogsback as well - at least 2-3 nights needed to relax and do this area justice, not the single night we spent. Travellers should cut down time from the Garden Route in order to detour up here for a true South African experience.
