A very nice hostel. For this Price I did not expect such a modern and nice room. The house is cosy and the People were friendliy an helpful. A "plus" is the location of the house in a silent street but near to restaurants, bars and Shops. I would stay at the SaltyCrax again!!

Saltycrax is in a handy place for getting to the beach and into Cape Town. In the evening there is a lively bar and there are several good restaurants nearby. Well... More

I will not hesitate to visit again should the need for accommodation arise whilst in the area. I received much more than I bargained for at a very affordable price. Thank you! The place is really to be recommended

We were received with a smile & had a great stay. We forgot our pillow their and it was returned to us within 4 days, that's what I call service :) Not even load shedding could damp the spirit, we'll be back.
