I have stayed in this ocean themed backpackers for 7 nights. Its location was brilliant, very close to citysightseeing bus stop in long street and green market square, walking distant to city center, bo kaap and civic center. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. Especially thanks to Danielle, Abu and Carol. I will miss them and two oceans.

Cheap and basic rooms however had what we needed. Clean and shower facilities reasonable. Place needs a Re-vamp as door handle falling off / no locks on the Windows. Excellent location and very friendly staff. Particularly the cleaner!

Visited the place with a few mates and honestly enjoyed! The drinks were good, people were friendly and an extremely wonderful staff. If you need a place thats really affordable and a staff that would treat you as if you're back home, then this is the place for you.

Booked and paid for accommodation only to find that the room was given to someone else. We were stuck without accommodation only to be refunded and told tough luck! This backpackers is extremely badly managed. My advise is don't book here and become stranded like we were!!

It was one of the cheapest accomodations we could find as backpackers in the center of Cape Town. Although the place has backpackers in the name, it doesn't feel like a backpackers, in the 4 nights we stayed there we didn't see any other backpackers, only local people searching for a place to stay. When we found the place we...

My partner and I stayed in a double room. The room was large but old and in need of a touch up. The room does not have air conditioning, and the fan was a bit useless, so the room heated up a lot over the day. But it is a backpackers, so you are getting what you are paying for....

We had an amazing stay with the awesome and friendly staff members. I would recommend this place any day. The rooms are clean and you may come and go as you please. There are quite a bit of stairs, so light luggage is ideal.
