The room was spacious & the bunks really comfortable, fantastic bathroom & kitchen facilities, breakfast included is a real bonus!

The staff were fantastic in helping up organise trips, transport around Cape Town (including the bus system which was a great money saver) and giving us advice on how to organise our days so that we could do as...

Lovely place to stay in Cape Town. Friendly staff, free wifi, amazing view of table mountain from the hammock and benches on the balcony, a very well stocked kitchen, and a bus stop two minutes away. Everything a hostel should be.

This hostel is exactly what it claims to be. Located a few minutes from the city centre, easily accessible by foot, with plenty of restaurants and supermarkets along the way. The facilities are adequate and clean. Upstairs, the balcony offers lovely views of Table Mountain. A very knowledgeable host. During my stay, all the major car hire places were booked... More

Safe, comfortable, quiet and CHEAP! $16 USD a night for a dorm bed including breakfast. It was my first time in a "true" hostel and I'd do it again if all of them were as wonderful! Beautiful hammock on the second floor; nice courtyard in the back; shared kitchen; clean bathrooms; close (walking distance) to many of Cape Town's best... More

There are tons of restaurants, shops and bars nearby. Lion's Head and Table Mountain are also within walking distance. We didn't meet the owner but Wayne was really friendly and gave... More
