A comfortable bed, clean swimming pool and the ability to cook one's own meals in a communal kitchen, make this a good value for money stop over. The security is good and one can park one's car inside giving one peace of mind.

I was very surprised by this accommodation as the price is cheap. The room was very nice, spacious and clean. The bathroom is small but very pretty. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the common area. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place !

I stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed it.Room was spacious, clean and had comfi beds. Close to supermarket and other shops for daily stuff. As its outside the main centre of Stellenbosch, you can walk around and get to centre in about 15 minutes. Car is useful, safe parking is included. Kitchen area is very clean, stuff is helpful....

Great place to stay, very safe. I can highly recommend that hostel. Clean rooms, swimming pool in the garden. Very good location, close to the city center. Nice and helpful staff. Good value for money.

A lovely hostel, although the bathrooms were very basic and there wasn't much hot water. The staff were really friendly and the cheese and wine tour is a must. A 10 minute walk from the centre of town but we felt very safe even walking around at night. Go to Bohemia bar for a local student night and enjoy some... More

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
