If you're looking at Franschhoek, you're probably seeing high accommodation prices and then you're looking at the more reasonable price at 22 Van Wijk Street and asking yourself what the catch is. Good news. There is no catch. This place is comfortable, with decent facilities and within easy, safe walking distance of the town centre. You'll be told that there's... More

It was our 3rd stay and this time for 4 nights, Alta suggested we took the singles room, thus giving us more space - it did and was perfect. Both Alta & Addey are great hosts and we will be back to 22 Van Wijk when we next return to Franschhoek.

We booked 2 rooms - both clean and comfortable with our own bathroom. Very convenient guest rooms in the middle of town. Able to walk to Wine Tram, shops and restaurants. Got some nice restaurant tips from Alta and Addey. Safe parking for our cars. Nice healthy breakfast goody bag, and a fully equipped kitchen to our use. Value for... More

It was advertised as a budget place but we were really impressed with our room. We booked a large room with our own bathroom. It was really comfortable and clean. We loved the deco too. Location very convenient too. Were able to walk to all the shops and cafes/restaurants. Wineries are not in the centre so you need to drive.... More

We stayed here for a few days in January. It was wonderful - the room was gorgeous and very comfortable with full amenities. Alta and Addey bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable - offering us advice on local walks and even posting back to us forgotten belongings! All in all a perfect, and extremely good value, place to... More

We stayed for 2 nights while we tasted wine in Franscheok. The location was exceptionally central with secure parking. The room was large, with a king size bed and high ceiling. The bathroom was equally impressive. The owners had lots of helpful tips and the breakfast goody bag was a sweet touch. Far more reasonable than all the accommodation options... More

This is a perfect place, super located and the loveliest people ever! They have given us fantastic advice. It is very close to the city centre, walking distance. Within 30 seconds you are on the main street.

Hosts Alta and Addey made the stay memorable. The room was well appointed and good value too. Internet reception was from the communal areas and a small breakfast was provided. Lovely, central and welcoming place, ideal as a base for exploring Franschhoek.

Checking into this place feels more like you're being welcomed into the home of a family friend than a hotel. Addey and Alta are some of the kindest people I met on my trip in the Western Cape and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with them. This guest house is really lovely and cosy, great value for money and has... More

Franschhoek seemed like an expensive part of the country, with hotel rates higher here than almost everywhere else we visited. Luckily, we found 22 van Wijk Street Guest Rooms on Hostelworld.com and booked two nights in the Passage room, a double with ensuite shower. We found the place without any trouble and our hosts Addey and Alta were very friendly,... More
