Strand, South Africa

Being my first time staying at a back packers I really enjoyed the stay - Rooms and place very clean. Hotels people friendly...just some of the tourists are a bit stuck up. The kitchen was well organised and none of our food disappeared. We are on a sport trip

The facility is satisfactory. One friendly lady at reception who made it worth while. Staff could try to be more professional and friendly. The location however is fantastic and close to all amenities including the V&A Waterfront. Great for youngsters on the go.

I stayed here for just one night around new year's 2017. We were a group of friends and had stayed at another hostel in Cape Town for a few nights earlier. I only wished we were able to book here sooner! I was in a double room with a private bathroom which is perfect even by some hotel standards. The...

very friendly stuff, especially at the reception, we've got coffee or tea in the morning, we could walk to the waterfront and to the seaside. Although it is situated on a big street it is not very loud.

Casual and friendly. The real backpackers retreat. Centrally situated. Friendly service. Bar opening after 17hoo. Hot summer days just take a dive into the pool. Be prepared to share bathrooms. Centrally situated on the main road of Three Anchor Bay.

Stayed 5 days in this hostel and can't find too many things to complain about. Probably only minuses were some dust under bed and soundproofness level, but they did not ruin anything. Extra thanks to the bartender! I will definitely come back in this hostel when returning to Cape Town.

Very nice staff and comfortable beds. We were really pleased with the lockers in our room and drawers under our bed to put clothes in. There is a bar and they host braais, you can do your washing there and the hostel is located very centrally. In short, everything you need for a good price. Go here

I was welcomed with warm hands and the receptionist was very helpful as well. I had initially booked a two nights stay but due to flight booking issues i had to cancel the other night and make it a one night stay. I communicated this to the receptionist and she did not have any issue at all about the change....

We stayed here for a week during our annual visit to Cape Town. The best hostel by far in the city. The braai on a Saturday night is one of the highlights. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. Very clean hostel. One of the only ones I've stayed in where your room Is cleaned daily. Could not recommend this place enough....
