This place has a good location near the inner-city of Cape Town and is reasonably priced. However, the atmosphere is unwelcoming and the owners were extremely unfriendly and rude to us. It is also cold in the winter.

It has been a good accomodation in a good position to see the city of Cape Town. The only problem is that we arrived in winter and in the room there is a little electric heater not sufficient to heat the room. We turned on before leaving for the visite of the city and the owners regularly turned it off!
