First thing that comes to mind about our stay in the backpackers lodge is the great host we had. He helped us a lot by telling how to survive in the night of Cape Town. He took really good care of us and we feel grateful. The rooms were as you would expect with this price. I really liked the... More

We moved to the Mountain Manor after a night in a hotel near the Waterfront. It was much more comfortable and charming and much more suitable for our stay. Our room was an upstairs room that connected to a shared balcony. The Manor can best be described as funky (in a good way). It is in a quiet neighbourhood across... More

The Staff were excellent and very accommodating. The breakfast was where the lodge could have done better, what was on the menu was not delivered and for someone who only ate a few pieces of fruit to be charged R75 was over the top.

I stayed at this backpacker for 5 weeks (US school trip), and I can tell you right off the bat it's not ideal for long term stay. If you only plan on one or two nights, maybe a week, it's great. If you're in a small group or by yourself, it's great. Larger groups, you may want to find other... More

Well Well this was a great recommendation! I came across the backpackers via the coast to coast after a friend of a friend said I should come here and was struck immediately by the beauty of the guesthouse, backpackers which you can find on the website of Mountain Manor. The building is a lavish 18th century building filled with picturesque... More

I stayed here for a few nights and enjoyed my stay - although it was nearly empty for most of our stay and didn't quite have the same social vibe of most backpackers, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a good location(close to long st) but a bit quieter than most hostels. Although... More

The new manager, an aggresive old lady from england , made every possible mistake and hence the place is usually empty and depressing. she changed all the african decoraions to ads of... More

This was a wicked place and one of the few places that offered secured parking. For the traveller on a budget, this place has all the kitchen facilities for a break from the 2 minute noodles on the burner, a cosy bunk bed and some steamy hot showers.. not to mention a funny receptionist and a friendly host - cheers...
