Green Elephant in Observatory: my best address in Cape Town!
First of all: friendly and very helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere, guests and staff mingle and become friends.
Secondly: very charming house with open-air bar outside and swimming pool, pizza-special and other activities
Thirdly: reasonable prices
Fourthly: Observatory is the perfect suburb in Cape Town. 10 min. by minibus to the city centre, It is save, there are lots of bars and restaurants and nice shops, good night life - no need to go to Long Street, just enjoy Observatory!
and finally: I stayed in Green Elephant in 2001/02 with my family and came back alone in 2012. Still I cannot imagine there is a better hostel on this planet. The atmosphere and the staff are unique!
