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

The establishment is "homey" and comfortable...it is also in a very convenient location. It is cool and vibey and caters for the young and elderly. I felt comfortable and would definitely go back and in fact am planning to do so. nice spot for a stayover on concert nites held at the stadium.

The weather wasn't great (in fact was awful thanks to some wild storms!) but with the help of the staff we were able to take in some of Cape Town whilst getting ourselves organised for the return to the UK....
