“Great Place”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The Lenox is a great backpackers if you need some silence to sleep. It's away from busy streets, but still central. I loved the old mansion feel you get when you're inside. The outside chill area has a nice atmosphere with a beautiful old tree hanging over the wooden balcony.

The staff was friendly.

It's quite big, so I imagine you'd meet a lot of interesting people there during the busy season.

It's very well priced.

I enjoyed my recent stay at the Lenox Backpackers hostel for several days in September 2013 during a visit to Cape Town. Brandon and your staff were very helpful. You have a great location near the bus line and market and offers great value. Your kitchen is the best and biggest one I've ever had access to. Your location was quiet and relaxing.

Great for tourists, students and business professionals. It's situated in a very good residential area (Gardens, Cape Town), and one of the larger guest houses in Cape Town.

The Lenox has always been a family-run B&B, but a new company is now running the show, and things are slowly changing for the better, adding much needed life to the place ;)
