I was very impressed with this hostel. I have stayed at one of the other Backpackers in Stellenbosch and this one wins hands down. The rooms are perhaps best described as urban in decor and whilst this could have run the risk of making you feel like you are in communist Russia it actually works very well. The common areas,...

This is very much a backpacker style of place with clean comfortable basic rooms with minimal furniture, a fan and a heater and a fully equipped kitchen area. There is secure parking available. It represents excellent value and the staff are very helpful, even letting us leave a bag whilst we travelled elsewhere. It is a little far to walk... More

Stay one or more nights in Banghoek Place. Everything one could expect from a first class hostel, Banghoek has it all. Rooms are spacious, mattresses very comfy and large and the bathroom facilities are clean and well designed. The pool looked very clean too. A large kitchen will enable everyone to prepare a meal and the chill area has enough... More

I only slept one night at Banghoek Place Hostel, in one of the dorms, and spent very little time inside the hostel, so my comment might lack a bit of indepth. The room where I slept in had just been refurbished and everything was brand new, from the beds to the shower. The place is very clean but I have... More

Nice house with pool in front garden. Large kitchen, living room with tv, fireplace, several couches. In the back another garden, where you can also sit and relax. We had a double room upstairs, where there is another place to sit. The room was nice. It had a mosquito net and a private bathroom. Clean and enough space. At the... More

Stayed here two nights. The staff here is phenomenal. (when we called from the train station asking how to get there, the gal who answered the phone, Ingrid, offered to come get us in her own car since she was just finishing her shift). They also went out of their way to make sure we got on a vineyard tour... More

We stayed here a single night and left early, so had only a brief visit. Our view in the short time was that the staff were very friendly, the other guests were helpful and open, and the accommodations were inviting and well designed. We had a lovely four poster bed with a mosquito net that gave it a very African... More

We stayed here a couple nights. The staff are lovely and friendly and while we had some issues with little things, all were quickly resolved. The main area for improvement is cosmetic - the place badly needs a proper deep clean (communal fridge especially) and a fresh coat of paint throughout.

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights in this hostel and were very happy throughout our stay. We had a private room with private bathroom. The rooms were very clean, modern and nicely decorated and the place proved to be excellent value for money. Staff at the hostel were very pleasant and helpful.
