I booked this hotel fairly last minute after strongly considering just backpacking at a hostel. When I saw how cheap the rooms were here, I couldn't justify not shelling out a little more cash for a private room. I admit, I was quite skeptical of the hotel because the rates were so low...but the reviews on Trip Advisor were good, so I figured I would check it out.
I'm very glad I ended up booking here. The room was huge and clean. There were four single beds, which I still think is odd but whatever, and they were very comfortable. The bathroom was what I expected--the shower was clean and the water was hot. The only complaint is the Wi-Fi reception on my iPhone. The service was weak on the side farthest away from the room door and my wifi would sometimes drop. That being said, this hotel is still far superior with respect to wi-fi because there is not a cap on time or data amounts like you will find at other hotels (one of those little hidden fees you will find all over Cape Town). The location was great and within walking distance to the bars and clubs I wanted to visit and tot he V&A Waterfront.
I would recommend this hotel to people who are traveling on a budget but who don't want to sacrifice the basics.
