I don't normally stay in backpackers. I've heard too many hair-raising stories of theft and riftfaf. That bubble was burst when I booked into Stocked Backpackers for my weeklong stay while attending the SA Longboard Championships this year held in Kommetjie/Muizenberg, Cape Town.
The reception area is small but welcoming. The 7 bedroomed suite was extremely clean
It overlooks Surfer's Corner in Muizenberg and is a short walk to the beach if you want to have a surf. Parking is adequate and has security all night.
Inexpensive meals are served in the cafe-like restaurant at receptiona and the food was very good.
There is a lovely balconey with a grear view and a large communal kitchen which was kept very clean and neat.
Satelite TV was available 27/7.
All in all I would recommend this backpacker as an extremely inexpensive over-night or extended period stay. I would definitely stay there again.
