Having spent time in hostels in Tanzania I was prepared for the worst, but I was incredibly pleased to find that Sunflower Stop was a fantastic place to stay! I honestly just booked randomly based off of reviews in TripAdvisor. The showers were fantastic, as good as mine at home- always hot, clean and available. The beds were very comfortable... More

After we spend a weekend in this hostel in April me and my friend decided to spend our last 10 nights in South Africa here again. In 5 minutes walking distance of the hostel you will find everything you need including a supermarket and several bars. Famous Waterfront and the City Center are 10-15 minutes by foot but also easily... More

A Sunflower Stop, best backpackers in Capetown. The staff in a sunflower were really friendly, helpful and made me feel at home. After staying in a few backpackers in CapeTown, i decided that the sunflower was the cleanest, most comfortable and affordable place to be, with easy access to everything important that CapeTown has to offer. Like the beaches, the... More

This was my first time travelling to South Africa, and this hostel made it a lovely experience for me. From the moment I arrived the staff greeted me with a warm welcome, and I felt at home right away. The rooms, the showers, and the bathrooms were super clean. My favourite part was the friendly staff who helped me in... More

This place was the best. My plan had been to hop from hostel to hostel during my two week visit to Cape Town, but I ended up staying here the entire time. I stayed in the dorms and they are good fun. As a solo traveller it was good to meet new people and that I did in spades. The... More
