We stayed two nights at a double room on the first floor in the backyard. Value for money is totally fine, as rooms are simple and clean. If you like company, you can spend time at the pool area or in the common rooms. If you like it more quiet, we can just tell, that we did not feel disturbed... More

I had a blast staying in Banghoek Place. The dorms are industrial, but the nice communal area, the garden and the outgoing staff make up for that. The town is walkable and the wine tour they offer daily is recommendable.

Stellenbosch has a lot of very expensive places to stay. if you want to spend your money on wine then this is the place to stay. The double rooms are spacious and the entire hostel is very clean. They have a lot of common areas. The kitchen is large and has everything you need to make a meal to eat... More

A comfortable bed, clean swimming pool and the ability to cook one's own meals in a communal kitchen, make this a good value for money stop over. The security is good and one can park one's car inside giving one peace of mind.

I was very surprised by this accommodation as the price is cheap. The room was very nice, spacious and clean. The bathroom is small but very pretty. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the common area. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place !

I stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed it.Room was spacious, clean and had comfi beds. Close to supermarket and other shops for daily stuff. As its outside the main centre of Stellenbosch, you can walk around and get to centre in about 15 minutes. Car is useful, safe parking is included. Kitchen area is very clean, stuff is helpful....

A lovely hostel, although the bathrooms were very basic and there wasn't much hot water. The staff were really friendly and the cheese and wine tour is a must. A 10 minute walk from the centre of town but we felt very safe even walking around at night. Go to Bohemia bar for a local student night and enjoy some... More

I was very impressed with this hostel. I have stayed at one of the other Backpackers in Stellenbosch and this one wins hands down. The rooms are perhaps best described as urban in decor and whilst this could have run the risk of making you feel like you are in communist Russia it actually works very well. The common areas,...
