Come home to this family run hostel where you not only become part of the family but where personal attention is the order of the day. Paradise is an experience, not a destination and is where cleanliness and comfort meet budget. We have an amazing sunset balcony from where the Swartberg Mountains form an idyllic view.
Our pub where our pool table keeps everyone busy, is situated away from the hostel so there is no party noise in the hostel in the evenings. The swimming pool works overtime during summer. The spacious TV lounge, indoor and outdoor BBQ facilities, fully equipped kitchens and very comfy rooms with WIDE beds make Paradise homely and comfortable.
Our private double rooms with Queen size beds and en-suite showers and toilets and the twin rooms have ¾ size beds with en-suite showers and toilets.
Our dormitories vary from sleeping 4 to 10 people - (some of our dorm rooms even have en-suite facilities!) and all our beds are fitted with full clean bedding. Our tenting sites are on grassy lawns under shady trees and the campers have their own ablutions.
We supply daily meals too, and our Ostrich BBQ is very popular with an Ostrich steak done South African Style on the fire, with ostrich sausage, jacket potatoes, crispy green salad and fresh bread rolls. Vegetarians enjoy a vegetable kebab with salad, potatoes and fresh bread rolls. Our full breakfast consists of homemade crunchy Muesli, yoghurt and orange juice to start, then await your warm plate with bacon, scrambled ostrich egg, fried tomato and toast, served with jam. Vegetarians enjoy cheese instead of bacon.
Paradise has an adventure centre on the premises and offer really great Mountain Bike trips, day trips and adventure trips that depart at 8:30am every morning from the hostel. The cycle trip starts at the top of the Swartberg Pass (1584m above sea level) from where you cycle back to Oudtshoorn and are able to visit the world famous Cango Caves, Ostrich Farm (ride an ostrich), Wildlife ranch (to stroke a cheetah) and Camel farm all en-route in one day out in the country. A shorter version is also available. Other activities include hot air balloon trips, quadbiking, meerkat visits, horseriding, hiking and loads more!
