For a hostel, I've never seen as clean and good place as this is, we stayed in a double room and couple friends within a dorm. The double room was a hotel quality room, no problems at all, excellent stay! In a dorm we had some ppl who didn't know how to be in a hostel room, and the hostel... More

super friendly staff. Beds adequate and my shower was great. It was a bit like being back at boarding school but with my own room and bathroom. This was such a different experience for me, but I wanted to be with the other friends and family of the wedding we were attending and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

My trip was like heaven on earth, nice to meet new people from all over. Bar was good, but the barman needs to know all visitors and guests are important, not just the single ladies. I will surely come back

There is an awesome poolside bar that is always a fun cheap place to meet people and enjoy people also traveling. It's nice that it's in green... More

We really enjoyed our stay at A Sunflower Stop. Really easygoing people, clean rooms (housekeeping every day!) and clean showers/toilets (which is not always the case in hostels). The kitchen was fully equiped and luckily it had gas cookers, so no problem during power outtages! ;) There was free Wifi in the entire hostel, only the last 2 days the... More

Despite our travel company messing up our bookings the staff were ridiculously helpful and made sure we still had a room we had a paid for. They arranged trips for us in Cape Town and were perfectly situated... More

Awesome place. The owner(I think he is) is very kind and helpful, the place have a small nice pool good WiFi, nice kitchen and 3 TVs spread through the backpackers. There are actually fans in the rooms which make sleeping great. The only downfall I can see is the location, which is also one of the good things(sleeping good). Would... More

We spend four nights at that trendy hotel. Safe and secure. Very helpful staff. They arrange our tours around Cape Town and taxi rides. Good kitchen with all cooking facilities. TV set and Internet of good quality. Budget price but comfortable. Swimming pool onsite and ensuit bathroom and toilet in the room. Recommended accommodation. Thanks
