I stayed in the Eyes room which is a female dorm. It had 8 beds and ensuite showers + toilet. It's not the cheapest hostel in the world but it's not expensive either. Upon arrival, check in is very easy, the staff are very nice and welcoming. You are given a code for the main room and the main gate...

it is a short Uber ride to Longstreet and we did this ourselves. The Uber service is very efficient and did not cost much at all because of the Rand. As far as i am aware the Backpackers is open all year round including March. My wife and i booked a private double with en suite bathroom and it was better than most hotels. Excellent value for money.

Hi Ranvir,

I have to agree, it's a really small but accessible neighborhood. We are 1 street back from the main road ,where there are mostly restaurants,cafe's, coffee shops and some retails stores. Then the V&A Waterfront is 10min direct walk. Our reception will also give you all the info you will need when you check in :)

See you soon
