We stayed for four nights and really liked it. Friendly and helpful staff and nice location. The downside is that the rooms are nit very sound isolated so you hear everything and there is a trainee passing just by the building.

Sweet place, cool staff, possibility to work & stay and the perfect spot to chill, surf or skate(board). Guests most likely are social and cool, and you can get a good night sleep because they love surfing. Next time I come there I give yoga lessons or something. If you go barefoot you'll get your feet dirty (only "bad" thing...

Best place to get down from workweeks. Good location and best setup for surfrookies. The backpackers is worth its category. It is as clean as you keep it. We love the familylike atmosphere and events in the neighbourhoud.

Staff was very friendly and helpful at all kind of questions. Our sleeping room was unfortunalety very windy and cold at day and nighttime. Bathrooms on the 1st floor weren´t that clean but at the ground floor much more cleaner. Breakfast is great there. Good location for exploring Camps Bay, Boulder Bay and Chapmans Peak Drive by car.

Good experience. We were made very welcome. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were invited for Thanksgiving but had to decline. Most of the guest joined. There was laughter and music. But the music stopped around 10pm, Very considerate. Thank you.
