My double room was cozy with a great view and just a five minute walk from Kalk Bay's spectacular tidal pools - perfect for an early morning swim with the locals. Although I would have preferred the convenience of a hot plate in my room for self-catering, cooking upstairs in the communal kitchen was not a problem.

Really enjoyed his hostel, particularly after the rush and bustle of Cape Town. The receptionist was very pleasant, but unable to help with any of our queries. Lovely to stroll along the main road and very convenient for the train from CTown, but no car hire or travel support available in Kalk.

The backpackers was good, quite a neat place and one has a great view of the ocean and Kalk Bay Harbour. The backpackers is situated close to various amenities and is just off the main road making it ideal for walking to various restaurants and antique shops in the area. I was just disappointed with the front door to the main commune areas not being able to lock and only the sliding gate locking.
