Reviewed 18 February 2017

I can't recommend this hostel enough. Very clean bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms. Lots of space. There is an in-house bar/outdoor area great for meeting other guests, and it closes at 11pm, so you can always get a great night's sleep. The staff is AWESOME, they really go above and beyond to accommodate any need and plan any activity. The location is...

Great place, feels like home. Good location, nice staff, feels safe and has very nice shared facilities, including a bar with local draft beer, pool table, some desks to work peacefully with good internet connection and a lovely terrace for the weekly barbecue or just to chill out with table mountain views!

I have fond memories of this place! The staff were great and were helpful in describing what to see and how to get around the city. It was a pretty chilled atmosphere, and events like braais and wine tastings allowed you to make new friends easily. The rooms were great as well. I was gutted I had to leave!

Highly reccomand this place. Perfect location, good ambiance. Perfect if you travel solo or you are just lazy to organize your stay. A lot of tours and event are set up. The only thing I haven't found perfect was the moquette in the room, which smells a little bit. Anyway good value for money
