The surfers lodge is very relaxed atmosphere that is bery welcoming to guests. Lovely and welcoming reception. Our room was not big. No aircon, just little fan to cool room. No coffee in rooms, must go to kitchen that is not been kept clean by guests and house occupants. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

Saltycrax is a very well known backpacker's destination in Table View, Cape Town, offering everything from dorm accommodation to single en-suite rooms. Services include a central reception area, which doubles as a well stocked bar for thirsty guests, and access to a myriad of adventure activities within Greater Cape Town and beyond. The staff are knowledgeable, professional and friendly.

Me and two other friends really enjoyed staying at Saltycrax. Nice staff, good vibe and close to the beach. A fine kitchen so we could cook what we wanted but Saltycrax also has a dinner for few extra rands. They also are really helpful if you want to do some activities like skydiving, safaris, vine tasting, kloofing or shark diving.

I had good two days stay at Surf Lodge. The place is tidy and neat. It was my first time to sleep in a dormitory and I thought the bunk beds were of great quality and had a pleasant sleep. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I will definitely return.

the experience here was fun, friendly, welcoming, and made me feel at home! I stayed in the dorm rooms and I loved it, meet new friends and created wonderful memories! It's far from Cape Town, but you can always travel to the city, cause the convienence of the bus and uber. Best hostel!!

Such an awesome place - would definitely recommend it to anyone. Amazing people here and just an awesome atmosphere. It's peaceful and it feels like a home away from home. It's in a safe area and has adequate security. Salty Crax is definitely by far the best backpackers I've been to. Thanks Salty Crax ❤

I stayed at this nice and cosy place, when visiting Cape Town. With its excellent friendly staff, who is always ready to help with questions or suggestions on where to go ect. It has a really relaxing vibe and it is located in a really nice area, just outside Cape Town, with surrounding beaches and many restaurants.
