We stayed here as a group of 4 and stayed in one of the 4 bedded dorms. Booking this was easy by contacting the hostel directly and paying on arrival. The place was spotlessly clean and as noisy as you expect hostels to be. The pool and braai area was really nice and they have a good secure car park....

Nice and cozy little place in Stellenbosch, fully equipped kitchen and very nice with the free breakfast included. We were though a little bit unlucky I think, as we arrived on a sunday where the owners wasn’t around, and the noice that the staff created during several hours this day, was almost unbearable… They were standing in 3 different parts...

Great location- less than a mile to centre of town. Comfortable clean room. good shower. Free wifi and towels. Good clean kitchen and communal area. Nice touch to get free breakfast. We also did the easy wine tour which saved us money on our stay- would recommend. Thanks

Our stay in Banghoek Place Hostel was very enjoyable. The friendly staff booked us onto a Wine Tour (with a discount) before we had even check in and looked after our bags while we were away. They provided some great advice on activities to do and were very helpful with any problems during our stay. We stayed in a 4...

it is located in the area of the university, this is what I needed. The staff was very helpful. If I need it I will definitely stay here again. Free breakfast is also a bonus. Maybe the location of sockets could be better

We always love to stay at Banghoek, whether it be as a couple or with family. This trip was no exception. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm room with an en suite. The price was very reasonable at R 180 pp/pn including a light breakfast with boiled eggs, toast, yogurt, jam, cheese and fruit, which was more than enough....

Banghoek Place is not the cheapest but it is very clean, more for the older traveler, peaceful, in a central location and the staff are friendly. Breakfast is included and tours and shuttles can be arranged. I don't know which is the nicest room to ask for because I was put in a private room that was cold and had...

Banghoek Place is frequented by the more discerning backpacker traveller. With nearly always space available, you are quickly booked into your room, which is scarely furnished but beatiful. En suite bathrooms for the most rooms, beautiful bedding and all the rooms are well ventilated. Although Stellenbosh is not known for it's crime, the safety and privacy that Banghoek offers, makes...

The place is well located and their breakfast is really really good! However I went there just for the wine tour and in the end I could not do it because there was only me and they would not run the tour for one person. However they could have told me this prior to arrival.
