Obs is a really happening area in Cape Town, a very young vibe. I stayed here for a few nights, the place is decent and good value for money. Stay here if you want to stay in a cool area with good pubs and a mixed crowd (lots of students hang out in Obs too).

The Sunday night comedy show was definitely worth the 15R to get in. The host is hilarious, and a couple of the comics were really good! Great vibes. Felt like a real community of artists working together. Warning: don't come late ;)

Stayed here for 2 nights last year, don't think I will be coming back in a hurry. Don't get me wrong it's in a good location (obs) wise and the lady on reception was nice to us. If your after a quiet night, look somewhere else, this place is above a pub.

The rooms are fairly cramped, the whole building is somewhat dirty, old and worn out. We wanted to use the kitchen to cook, but the facilities are not particularly great nor clean. Looking back I'm not too sure its 100% safe either, as anyone can enter the hostel once inside the pub.

Just not very pleasant inside! We paid 135 Ran a night p/p and after checking out we realised there were cheaper places which were a lot more pleasant

This hostel is over a pub which is great if you're only staying in obz to party but not so great if you want to sleep at all.

The pub itself is a good place for a few drinks and is quite cheap.

I was very unlucky to be staying in a dorm where 2 different girls on 2 different nights vomited on the floor.

The staff were cool but I think they ate my food!

The kitchen is gross!
