I stayed at Stoked for 5 nights and I absolutely LOVED it! The rooms are modern and clean and they have the friendliest staff. The receptionist saw I was traveling alone and invited me out for pizza twice. How cool is that?! You also get an amazing view of the beach from their balcony. Perfect for enjoying you breakfast.

"Stoked" is close to our offices which is at the Muizenberg Station (so the backpackers is ideally located for easy access WHEN Metrorail is functioning). Had a breakfast of French toast (R40) here yesterday and it was good; very nice bread and real Maple syrup! The friend bananas were however cold; prefer it hot. Service good and unassuming. Have had...

Staying at Stoked has ended up in me staying so much longer than planned. The vibe the crew working there give off is very much like your between family (especially the manager, Henry). Met the most amazing friend group there, already planning an extra weekend here right before I leave Cape Town. If you're looking for a relaxed vibe, with...

The reception offers a warm welcome and helpful service. Its hard to describe the layout but once you climb the spiral stairs you are greeted by an amazing view of Muizenberg beach. The deck area and lounge are perfect for hanging out and watching the surf! Little restaurants and coffee shops are within walking distance or check your email on...

Stoked Backpackers is an extremely inviting, comfy and friendly place to stay. It’s spotlessly clean, with very nice and helpful staff, good Wi-Fi, plus incredible views of Muizenberg’s surfing beach (and pods of dolphins if you’re lucky) from the upstairs deck. Their café serves the best coffee in Cape Town – and I’ve had a lot of coffee in Cape...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Looking for a great backpackers or hostel in Muizenberg? You’ve come to the right place! Stoked Backpackers is literally a stone’s throw away from Surfers’ Corner in Muizenberg, Cape Town. This popular swimming beach is a blue flag beach, which means it gets top marks for safety, cleanliness and amenities. The beach break produces great waves, making it a hot spot for surfers. In fact, Muizenberg is one of the World’s Best Surf Towns, according to National Geographic, who say, "A great surf town is the nearly magical sum of consistent waves, inviting accommodation, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat." ... more   less
