This my favourite place to stay when in Cape Town, and by far one of the best guest houses I've ever stayed. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the location is amazing (pity I can give it only 5 stars, because it deserves more) and the service is impeccable. Aissa and her staff are very welcoming and helpful. Whether it's suggesting and booking trips, restaurants or transport or ordering food when you want to stay in in the evening, nothing is too much trouble for them. The guest house is in a relatively safe neighbourhood and an easy 20 minute walk from both the V&A Waterfront as well as Long Street. All downhill. Walking back is, as said by another reviewer, another story .... :) But of course you can always take a taxi to conquer the steep streets of Green Point. After 4 or 5 visits (I am losing count) Bluegum really feels like my Capetonian home now and I am already looking forward to my next visit!
On a side note: if you are in Cape Town and are even remotely interested in sharks, you absolutely should go cage diving with the Great Whites. An absolutely amazing experience! Of course Aissa can arrange this for you.
