Love this place, feels like home! I didn't want to leave! If I would come back to Cape Town I would stay at Saltycrax Backpacker!

Love the place. Love the animals and the staff. It's so chilled, hence I've been coming back every year since 2006.
Great for surfing, tanning, meeting new friends and partying!

Love Salties!

Had such a nice time at Saltys. Everyone is so nice and laid back. Perfect location, 5-10 min walk to the bus, 5 min walk to the nearest shop/bar and 5 min walk to beach. Don't miss out on Tequila Tuesday! 5 Rand @ shot!
They arrange very good trips, like the Full Moon hike to Lions Head. And otherwise the people here is always ready for a fun trip!

Best place in town!

I came to Salty's to volunteer teaching local township kids how to surf and have been having a great time. The projects are a lot of fun, and the hostel itself is awesome. The staff is friendly and willing to help, and Salty's attracts a lot of cool, fun, and chill people. The beach/bars are only a short walk away, and there is always something going on. It's a great alternative to staying in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Cape Town (only a short bus ride away) and Table View is a great spot for both kiters and surfers. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Great camping in the yard behind Salty's.

Saltys is one of the best backpackers in a long time. This is my forth time in CT and the def the most atmospheric place I've stayed. It's chilled in the day but there are always interesting people around to chat to. Haven't many people who didn't end up extending their stay here.

Rooms were clean and very good value if 3/4 people travelling together. Energetic staff, loads of bars nearby, 5mins walk to the beach, and less than 30mins into central cape town on the myciti. Just wish people would use the jacuzzi more often.

Oh, and the manager is a maniac, in a very good way, you will see!!
