We had a great time at Sunflower Stop the staff is amazing they helped us whenever we needed assistance and were also great to hang out with. There are bbq's held on Saturdays which are a sure fire way of wrapping up the day's adventures.

The location of this backpackers is amazing, with the V&A Waterfront on the one side and the beach with numerous restaurants on the other. The area is also very quiet and there were really no noise within the backpackers. There are a lot of shops and activities to do within walking distance, however, we had a rental car, and parking...

We found Sunflower Stop to be super clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. The check in went very smoothly and we really appreciated how the staff were keen to make us feel welcomed. Andrew the barman and John the manager were great conversationalist with many helpful tips on what to see and do while visiting their wonderful city

I didn't expect to get so much for the money. :) the service was perfect and the beds as well. There's a nice new kitchen and everything was clean and worked how it should. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone.

Had a really good stay at the Sunflower Stop. They had a fire going every night so I enjoyed a braai every evening. Very big modern kitchen with all the necessary equipment to make your own home cooked meals.

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.
