Visited the place with a few mates and honestly enjoyed! The drinks were good, people were friendly and an extremely wonderful staff. If you need a place thats really affordable and a staff that would treat you as if you're back home, then this is the place for you.

Booked and paid for accommodation only to find that the room was given to someone else. We were stuck without accommodation only to be refunded and told tough luck! This backpackers is extremely badly managed. My advise is don't book here and become stranded like we were!!

It was one of the cheapest accomodations we could find as backpackers in the center of Cape Town. Although the place has backpackers in the name, it doesn't feel like a backpackers, in the 4 nights we stayed there we didn't see any other backpackers, only local people searching for a place to stay. When we found the place we... More

My partner and I stayed in a double room. The room was large but old and in need of a touch up. The room does not have air conditioning, and the fan was a bit useless, so the room heated up a lot over the day. But it is a backpackers, so you are getting what you are paying for.... More

We had an amazing stay with the awesome and friendly staff members. I would recommend this place any day. The rooms are clean and you may come and go as you please. There are quite a bit of stairs, so light luggage is ideal.

It is the one of the cheapest places in city centre and its location is central to everything. Moreover, there are a lot of long term local residents living on the premises who like to party until the early hours. Apparently food, electronic devices, chargers and cell phones were constantly missing when you stepped out even for a few seconds.... More

Was hoping to find a good affordable place to relax a bit after 15 hours of flying, found just what I was looking for here at Two Ocean Backpackers with shops, internet cafe's, banks and the best night life in town. Quick hassle free walk in straight from the airport, they have a pool table and tables looking out down... More
