Despite the attractive price point, I would definitely recommend paying a little more for a guest-house accommodation. The bed was okay, but the room was not nice, and the social areas were not clean and not particularly appetising. The staff were friendly enough, but I would not stay there again.

Stayed there in February. It was great basic accommodation and for the price couldn't have asked for anything better. Comfortable and clean and quiet, Close to the beach. The only critisism is that they could tidy up the exterior a bit - but this is of minor concern. I can recommend this for those who don't want to spend an... More

This is a hostel in Kommetjie. It is extremely clean and spacious. Location close to beach and town center. Quiet at night. Safe and secure. Wifi works, but is not free. Extremely clean and spacious. Well-run. Kitchen is fantastic. Billiards table downstairs. Balcony has great views. RECOMMENDED.

We were 3 couples with 5 children under the age of 7. Very spacious, but little things bothered us. Very very dirty oven, light bulbs not working, open staircase railings, overflowing showers etc. However, very spacious living arrangements and walking distance from the sea.

We've stayed there for 4 nights, wish it was longer. Great place outside Cape Town. Beautifully located and if you have a car it is very convenient for trips to Table Mountain, Cape Town, Muizenberg and Cape Point. Long Beach is so close and is so beautiful. You can also enjoy a glass of wine on a deck on the... More

We spent a wonderful week here. Downtown Capetown is okay, but the real highlights of the area are away from the city and near the coasts. Eco Wave was a great jumping off place to explore Cape Point, hike Table Mountain, and whale watch in Hermanus. The kitchen was fantastic and spacious. The rooms are small, but the common areas...

I wish I'd been informed about their facilities and neighbours a bit more when I checked in. Although I slightly felt out of the place on my first day, it turned out to be not bad at all in the end. Very clean, very spacious and staff were helpful. If they accepted credit-card payment and if the WiFi was free... More
