Raggies International Backpackers is situated in St Francis Drive, the road that links everything in St Francis Bay.

Raggies is the short name for the Ragged Tooth Shark which is common along the coast of South Africa. Like our packers, Raggies are international and are found in all three major oceans of the world, they also relax during the day and are active at night!

The six bedrooms are upstairs in a lovely modern thatched roof building and can sleep up to 8 people per room.  We can also reserve a room for a family and won’t mind converting it into a honeymoon suite either!  Each room has its own bathroom with a shower facility.

Adjacent to the rooms upstairs is the communal kitchen and TV lounge with DStv.  We are within 100m from a well stocked Superspar and liquor store, should you feel like staying in.  Both shops are open 7 days a week between 07:00 and 19:00.

Downstairs is home to Blue Earth Coffee Shop which serves breakfasts and light lunches, as well as Jane’s funky gifts and artwork, should you feel the need to purchase a unique gift to take home or just enjoy the arty and interesting ambiance.

We are also proud to be home to St Francis’s first craft beer brewery. St Francis Brewing Co. Offers a variety of craft beers with a delicious food menu to compliment the interesting beers as well as their own beer. It has a friendly relaxed atmosphere guaranteed you will enjoy the experience.
Late night conversations are destined to take place at the popular Legends Bar... a “where everybody knows your name” type of bar, the place to make new friends and meet locals. Legends is downstairs in a garden setting.

For the pizza lovers we have “Pizza@167” pizza takeaway at your convenience at the bottom of the stairs!

If you happen to be at Raggies on the last Saturday of the month, you will experience our very special community craft and food market with a feel good atmosphere offering crafts and foods made by very talented stall holders.

We want you to enjoy your stay at Raggies International Backpackers as if it is your home away from home with a special experience. We are designed to suit all age groups and a variety of travellers, both from abroad and South Africa. We will do all we can to satisfy the needs of our guest.

We also offer free WIFI so you can stay in touch with your loved ones. We can arrange transport for those without, but offer safe parking too for those that self-drive.
