A pleasant environment with lively staff, highly professional and very friendly. Clean beds, sheets and pillows with wonderful bathrooms and a nice bar with cheery music in the background. Very secure and in a nice neighborhood. Don't have much to say except that we really enjoyed our stay and yes definitely, next time I am there I will stay at... More

Great hostel to stay at! The staff is very helpful and welcoming. They make it very easy to plan excursions for the weekends. I booked a wine tour, shark cage diving, garden route tour, and cape point tour all through SaltyCrax and it was so easy!!!

SaltyCrax is incredible. It is literally a home away from home. The people who work there are so friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to do if you need advice. They will book trips for you and help arrange transportation if you need it! They treat all their guests like family! Salties is just a short walk away from... More

This place is amazing! if you enter its as if you are in a jungle! the people are really friendly, and the area is beautiful! The place is just pretty far away from the cape town city center (about half an hour drive by car). But it is definitely worth going to this backpackers! they arrange all kinds of trips... More

At the time of my visit (August 2011), Saltycrax had the BEST people working there, I can't stress this enough!!!! They go above and beyond to make you feel at home. The owners sometimes will even take you out to show you local places (like Critters, a restaurant/bar down by the beach) and throw parties on occasion you can attend... More

We recently rocked 4 days of awesomeness at Salty Crax! Cant recommend the place enough, great staff, chilled vibes when needed, craziness when party time came. Miss you Constable, Wifey & Fat Trevor.

Such a chilled out vibe with friendly staff and a very comfortable and clean living area. My boyfriend and I camped here for over a week for the best value in Cape Town.. and would do it again. A little far out of the city center but a nice drive if you have a car.

Was down in Cape Town for a wedding that took place at Blue Peter. SaltyCrax proved to be an acceptable distance from the wedding venue. Was expecting it to be loud with it being a backpackers but was very chilled and peaceful. Everybody was doing their own thing e.g. utilizing the wifi on the premises. This relaxed atmosphere made coming... More

An eclectic mix of volunteers (mostly Scandinavian), helping out local kids in townships and so on and conventional backpackers and kite surfers. The rooms are nice, the property is secure and the bar rocks - at R14 for a beer and with a plentiful supply of jeager it's difficult for it not to. The staff are friendly and will help... More
