Great backpackers accommodation at an affordable price considering its location. Its generally ok and I would definitely come back anytime. The kitchen and reception are clean and who wouldn't say yes to a free wi-fi?

I had a very nice stay at Sunflower stop. Staff is friendly, helpfull and the location is not very close to good places to visit but walkable. It's safe and the swimmingpool is absolutely an advantage.

I loved the Sunflower Stop - the location superb. Staff very helpful and guests all very friendly. Not too big and my single room, although without private facilities very close to bathrooms - perfect. Large, clean kitchen and outdoor round the pool seating, lounging.

The stay was very pleasant. The location is great because it is close to a Spar and to V&A Waterfront which is a beautiful walk. The only thing I can say is no one really washed dishes so most of the time when we arrived and needed a spoon or something they were dirty.

Excellent location, great hostel atmosphere, good swiming pool. Saturdays braai joins and aproximates guests. Excellent shower pressure and temperature, but the short courtain makes the bathroom all flooded everyday after the shower.
