    I had a lovely stay although the hockey team of 16 year olds was a bit annoying but nothing to do with the hostel...the value for money was great for a short trip and staff very helpful and lovely.

    Nice little hostel, verry clean.

    Small room.

    This hostel has a perfect location and the friedliest staff. My room was very comfortable and everything was very clean. I can recommend this place to everyone.

    It may seem a bit expensive for a hostel but accommodation in Cape Town is overpriced compared to the rest of South Africa (including Jo'burg).

    Friendliness of the staff at check in and at the bar. I was a lone female traveller and received all the help I needed to get into V and A and up to table mountain. The evening was great as sat chatting in the bar with the great staff and other great guests. Shame I was only there for one night.The place was really clean with nice decor and all standard facilities.

    Feel free to chat with the people from all around the world.

    Official check in time and check out time should be more flexible.

    I needed a place to stay in Cape Town before I flew home the next day and it was perfect. It was very comfortable and centrally located in Greenpoint. It was a backpackers lodge but had all the comforts as well as a swimming pool and cosy bar area. I recommend it highly. The staff were also very accommodationg and friendly. The kitchen was also very modern with all cooking facilities needed.

    My double room was quite small but was adequate as I also had my own bathroom as I requested.

    The place is just nice in general

  • Couple

    The location is fine and it is free to park your car. Although not secured.

    When we asked on arrival if they could change the sheeds because there were a lot of hairs on them, They said they would...but didn'T. Now my boyfriend has some kind of rash on his legs.. Our room was far to pricy for what we got. Would not go there again. There are cheaper places with free Wifi,breakfast and helfull staff.

    Staff, travel informations, availiable.... Near long street, camps bay, waterfront, sea point...

    A bit noisy (machine room of the swimming pool at 1m, external door during the night). Wifi (low bit rate, disconnexion, signal power ...)

    Even though it had a communial shower and kitchen we stil felt we had privacy and the luxury of any other hotel. The staff was friendly and welcoming.

  • Older travelers

    We found the picturs to be misleading. This place is for backpackers only. We took the double room and it was very basic.

    You get a clean place to sleep the night. No more. The price was too high.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Room and en suite were clean and comfortable.

    The bar / swimming pool area looks tacky. Bar does not have enough glasses and ran out of some products, e.g. whisky and white wine.

    It was very near the beaches
