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...

Banghoek Place is a professionally run establishment with great staff who are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. This is a quiet place so great if you want to relax in the evenings. Its close to the centre of Stellenbosch and only a short walk into town. They serve a free breakfast in the morning, which...

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.

A bit of a walk from the City centre, which is something to keep in mind if you're not driving. As a solo female traveller, they encouraged me not to walk on my own at night, and the man at the front desk (wish i could remember his name!) actually drove me to the city centre for dinner since it...

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...
