The service from the beginning was terrible. I received a 2 liner without a greeting or a name, saying they have no rooms for us. Then trying to get hold of them to query it, it took hours and hours, only to never get a response from them again. Very bad. There were a group of guys coming to experience... More

The staff is great, really helpful and enthusiastic. Big supermarket around the corner. The backyard is a peaceful place to hangout. All the people that i met there where super nice, i went hiking on stellenbosch mountain (to the top and back 16km) difficult trail but the view is amazing, if the air is clear you can see the table...

Did not enjoy my stay at Banghoek too much: very very quiet, location a bit too far from Stellenbosch center (15-20 minutes walk), and very basic (hufter proof) rooms. While I can see it advantages (good value and quiet), I wouldn't stay again.

We stayed over for a night in a double en-suite room. We were attending a party in the area. I was pleasantly surprised by a quiet room, comfortable bed and good quality linen. The shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Perfect for a night's stay or a base from which to explore the town and do... More

I'm a administrative assistant who could for the life of me not get a response out of the service representative: Cornelius. E-mail upon e-mail... No response. Phone call after phone call, absolutely no helpfulness whatsoever. Had to cancel the booking as they could not even meet minimum standards - i.e. no scanner no fax no power to respond to my... More

Had an excellent stay for a week with my wife and toddler. Facilities are well thought out, nice pool for the hot days, room spacious and nicely decorated. Staff were all very friendly. Will definitely recommend!

Even though the hostel itself was not very cozy, we had a wonderful night here. The kitchen was very clean and there was a lot of equipment present so it is possible to cook yourself. Furthermore the beds were amazing, which was perfect since we were all very tired. The rooms are not very special, but everything you need is... More

The worst service I have experienced in my life! R6 000 got stolen right out of my bag, there is no safe or any safe place to store your belongings. When we confronted the staff and the manager, they were useless and the manager's words were: "Well if I was carrying that much money with me, I would have checked... More

Simple,but clean backpackers. The walking distance to the city center 20 minutes. It's good for a few nights. Unfortunately, there is glass in the bathroom door, so that you can not use the bathroom when someone else is in the room. (Dorm Room) City centre of Stellenbosch is beautiful!

I am somewhat wary of backpackers in general. Always thinking of the movie wonderlust and fearing a bunch of hippies suggesting random acts of kindness. Nevertheless. This place were great. Comfy beds and clean room. Hippies hanging around in lobby but the place is still decent.
