The area is wonderful, easy transportation, near restaurantes, supermarket, bottle shop, cafes, stadium, waterfront. The place is clean, organized. Staffs ready to help you, in special Nelly who is very kind, she deserves the best. My negative point is that my room had no window to get fresh air, I dont know about other room, is good to check before.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Nellie is our employee of the month and a great asset to the team. 4 bed dormitories do not have access to windows for opening which means that the air-conditioning needs to be used for air circulation. All of our other rooms have windows that can be opened. More

Excellent service and the staff is very friendly. Brilliant bar and great vibe with great plans of renevafions. Clean and safe environment. Kitchen is very well kept with no theft of food which is a plus for a traveller on a waiters paycheck. All in all very comfortable hostel

This was my second visit, and it will definitely NOT be my last! Last time I visited the nearby Waterfront and surroundings. This time I just relaxed. There are so many excellent restaurants and shops within walking distance, not to mention the Randy Warthog inside. I can honestly recommend this lovely place to anyone.

A pretty cool and vibrant hostel. Front desk staff were fun and friendly. Hostel is located a short 10 minute walk from the V&A waterfront and only a couple of minutes from the "stadium" bus stop. I had a double private room where there were 2 single beds pushed together and made separately. Also room was located right next to... More

Thank you for reviewing the hostel, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The internet system is indeed being upgraded. We have increased our fibre optic line, installed additional access points for WIFI connectivity on the floors and will be moving to a password system instead of the data value vouchers that are currently being issued.

Cape Town was the end of a 5 month overland journey that began in Cairo. With the vibe of a Hotel, it's great as a place to sleep if you plan on exploring the city all day every day. Safe and clean, with private bathrooms, tons of rooms, and lockable under-bed storage space. Just a 10 minute walk to the... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We marry both hostel and mid range hotel standard accommodation for the fun traveler that still wants the atmosphere of a hostel but the comfort of mid range hotel. Take care and we hope that you will stay with us again! More

Arrived at Cape Town for 6 months and needed a clean place to stay, where I could let my luggage safely, and located in a strategic area whille I would be looking for a permanent place : Never @ Home did the job perfectly. The bar / restaurant is also really good and cheap.
