Oooooooh, what a place.......You'll have to experience it for Yourself, but You surely gonner tell me "Your spot on mate". The green trees and grass gives one that jungle feeling. Tropical fish to hang out with and if not then You can take the dogs: Lichy, Mango and Freddie [The BOSS] for a nice stroll on the beach. Staff always,yes always friendly and helpfull and great to hang out with them. The births wake You in the morning with amazing tunes and sounds just like in the jungle even thou Saltycrax are in the heart of a residential area. I LOVE IT HERE !!!!!!!

Le-Mar

i love Salties, the dogs are Uber friendly, the rooms are really nice and the staff are really helpful. the accomm is situated only a short walk to TableView beach which has some incredible sunsets directly over Robben Island and i spent most of my time here surfing and taking photos.

The accomm is usually full of young Scandinavian volunteers who are really fun to hang out with and the lounge area is really comfy. Sort of like a friends house where random people keep dropping in and out.

Pity the spa wasnt working

Never want to leave, could stay here forever! The staff and the people who are staying here are so nice, meet so many new friends here. SaltyCrax is very chilled and it is so much happening at the same time. Love SaltyCrax!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for our first two nights in cape town, great vibe close to the beach and amazing staff. Our room was far better than we could have hoped for and we would definitely stay here again when back in Cape Town.
