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

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.

We stayed at the Sunflower stop August 2013 at the end of our family 4 week holiday touring South Africa. 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....

a decent place! I prefer the hostel styles that have the bathroom en suite for each room, but this was workable. The location was good for walking to the various places I wanted to see, and was also good to head out to climb Table Mountain.
