We arrived at 01:00 in the morning, where after the 24hr reception helped us book in, and find our beds, and the next morning we left again quite early. The facilities were nice and clean, but our room was on the street, which was a bit noisy. (i would most probable have been part of the noise if i wasn't... More

Fantastic reasonably priced place to stay. Comfy beds made up daily, excellent cooking facilities and very friendly welcoming staff that went out of their way to help you. Had previously been staying in LongStreet Backpackers and moved due to noise, wish I had stayed at Never at Home the entire time!

(+) Location is excellent at Green Point. Free WiFi available in rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Hypermarket adjacent to the hostel. Computers available at the reception for free. (-) 6-bed dorm is way too small for 6 people, it barely fits 4! No space for your personal belongings. Room stinks because ventilation is horrible. Bathrooms are not very clean. Swimming... More
