Buccaneers hostel has been described as being like a backpacker village because of the way it's spread out over the 8 hectare of wild coast forest right next to the stunning Chintsa beach in South Africa. Most people say that it's a place to come home to. A legend in its own time. For us it is home and for the past 12 years we have been sharing our hostel with people just like you - backpackers from all over the world.
Buccaneers Lodge & Backpackers offers a wide range of accommodation suitable for all types of traveller; from stunning new suites with the most amazing views in the house to airy beach cottages for families, dorm style beds for backpackers and camping spots for those on a budget, you're sure to find something perfect for your needs.

We're enjoying a toasting hot Summer this year - our 10th birthday year! The Summer season has seen a wealth of great work completed by our group volunteers at rural schools Silatsha and Mandela Park, as well as an enthusiastic team of education volunteers on the Wild Coast Schools and Pre-School projects who're driving our computer literacy and foundation phase education initiatives this term.
September brought an awesome new friend to Buccaneers along with the #meetsouthafrica crew. Budget Traveller is he brain child of Kash Bhattacharya - a charismatic travelling blogger with a practical approach to travel and an informative way of putting across his findings and opinions.
Nourish your soul and nurture your body
Step into the magnificence of the Eastern Cape. Tucked away amongst lush green bush and long white beaches, is a little piece of heaven. Chintsa, untouched and rich with natural beauty. Your spirit will soar while the gentle sound of the ocean surrounds you and you feel the soft, warm white sand beneath your feet.
