After travelling in Africa and visiting many hostels this was the best one and a perfect way to end my holiday. It was very clean, the staff was extremely informative. It takes quite a while to walk places but it is a small price to pay

A friendly hostel with a great pool and a lovely room. My room opened out onto the front where the bar is, so it can be noisy at night. Parking is outside the front and on the pavement. A good location and good value for money with nice people.

The hostel is a nice place to stay, even when the guys at the reception don't open a single minute earlier than they have to. So organize well! But in generell they help you nice and friendly and it's preaty clean. The lockers could be a bit bigger and some need to be fixed. All in all I enjoed my... More

There were three of us in our group altogether and the moment we arrived we got a very friendly welcome. The rooms we stayed in were so clean and homely. In the evening we spent a bit of time in the bar, and Jon the manager and Andrew the barman were both a lot of fun. Would really recommend this... More

Sunflower stop is an amazing choice for backpackers. It is always clean, the staff are very friendly and it is great value for money. It is walking distance from the city center and the waterfront, making transport to and from Sunflower stop very easy.

We had a very nice stay in this hostel. I specially liked the bar in there. It's easy to get walking to the center and to the waterfront. It takes about 20 minutes on foot. There's also a supermarket nearby

I picked this location because it is close to the mall, and the sea and many restaurants. we spent a lovely time walking around the local park and lighthouse and had the most delicous meal at the mall. Later in the evening we were also in walking distance of a chop house where we shared a bottle of wine and... More

This hostel is a good place to stay in Cape Town I think. It's located in Greenpoint, a quiet and lovely area. Not far away you can find the soccer stadium of the Worldchampionship 2010. It's also possible to walk to the Waterfront, the nice old harbour of Cape Town. There is also a supermarket and a Mc Donalds for... More
