Brand new, colourful, clean, quiet, safe... a very nice 2 day stay. I was with a car but there's a railroad and bus station right next door and a large shopping centre across the road. Excellent quality for a backpackers.

We stayed in the Deluxe Double suite and used Off The Wall for a night out in Claremont. Off The Wall seems brand new and in a very good condition. The room was very clean and the Deluxe Suite gives you the required privacy. The kitchen is clean. Hudson’s restaurant is a 5 min walk away. All in all an... More

This place is very modern and very clean and staff are extremely helpful and make you feel at home. Its in a good location next to the train station and is just off a bustling high street with shopping centres,restaurants and bars galore! Only negative is that the walls are paper thin and it can become noisy in the evenings... More

I've been to a few backpackers in and around Cape Town, and South Africa, normally the accommodation is acceptable but nothing to write home about. Off The Wall backpackers has raised the bar in every way possible - admittedly it is a bit more expensive than most backpackers but definitely worth it. The rooms are spacious and come with a...

Wow - what a great place - I have stayed in many backpackers and have inspected a lot without staying - this is one of the best I have seen. the surprise is after you arrive down the very grey and unimpressive side street is the entrance - it absolutely blows you away. It is much better than a B&B... More

They may be "Off the Wall" but they are definitely on the map!! Beautifully furnished, clean and cosy. Situated in the heart of Claremont - there no shoratge of things to do all in walking distance (including the metro!). Although the place itself doesn't have many activity facilities it is in no way lacking!! We took a school tour down... More
