All-round convenient, clean, secured and friendly backpacker establishment at very reasonable prices, especially considering it was Cape Town. I paid 200 Rand per night including secured off-street parking. Nice bar, clean kitchen, all shops etc close by and walking distance to Waterfront, transport etc. Staff are great - mostly international that I could tell - and it is an up-beat...

Great location near the V&A waterfront, as two females traveling to Cape Town for the first time it was great to have a hostel so close to major attractions, two blocks from three major bus routes and in a safe location. Greenpoint is such a nice area and not too loud or crazy as some of the places we considered...

Nice cozy place close to the stadium, port and watterfront. There is a patio, pool and bar. They can cook breakfast for you for like 30 R and burger for 50 R. Great value for money. There are also many restaurants right next to it. Same as grocery store and liquer shop:)!

Where I stay and where I sleep are dependent on where I’m visiting. With destination travel I stay, when visiting I sleep. Cape Town I was visiting. Located at Green Point, what appeared to me to be an up and coming area, we were a welcome walk into the city centre and close to the V&A waterfront. Effectively a youth...

Very nice and affordable hostel, situated close to everything, Camps bay, the V&A waterfront, the stadium, Long street, Table mountain and Lion’s head. Even though this hostel offers many beds, you should book in advance, cause it does get full – OFTEN!

Never@Home is an excellent hostel, easily the best I've been to in Cape Town. The friendly staff went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful, with a high level of service that I wasn't accustomed to from other hostels. The rooms are comfortable, well-maintained and very clean, with funky design touches like colour-coded walls that give them a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the vibrant Green Point "strip", we are surrounded by trendy restaurants and bars, overlook the Cape Town Stadium and in walking distance of the famous V & A Waterfront, Cape Town CBD and the Seapoint Promenade. Easy access to public transport provides guests with rapid access to Long Street (South Africa's most famous party destination), Table Mountain (a new 7 wonder of the world) and some of the best beaches Cape Town has to offer. We provide a range of accommodation including shared dormitories and double/twin rooms for those looking for something a little more intimate. Separate sanctuary accommodation is also available for females only. The majority of our rooms are en-suite with additional communal bathrooms provided for extra convenience. Basics, necessities like lockers, bedding, heating and air conditioning are supplied in all rooms. Our reception is open 24 hours and safety and security is a key priority. The Randy Warthog, bar and restaurant overlooks the hostel waterhole (swimming pool and sundeck to those in the know). Randy hosts parties and events most days of the week, including traditional braai's (barbeque in South African language). A continental breakfast or a full cooked breakfast is available at the Randy for an inexpensive cost. Additional hostel facilities include a communal kitchen, inside and outside social areas, internet zone and bicycle hire for those with a little more energy. Fast wireless connectivity is available throughout property. Our travel desk guys just love Cape Town and can advise you on all the hot spots and best day trips! They can also advise you on what not to do. A hostel shuttle bus runs daily (for a surcharge) for in house guests, and safe car parking (on request) for those independent types. ... more   less
