Very nice location, near supermarketing and bars. Quiet place, excellent staff. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned. Good beds. In general, everything is ok.

A bad-ass backpackers. Obz is likely CT's best suburb. Sure... the mountain/Waterfront are 10 mins by taxi/train, but Muiz'berg, Simonstown, Kirst'bosch, and Claremont are all easier to reach via Obz. The vibe is great. Slightly more hipster compared to the city, but also more personable and interesting. 33 South was awesome. The people, the place, and the atmosphere. Can't recommend it enough. My only suggestion is for anti-mosquito mesh over the windows. Besides that, it was perfect.

This was an amazing place to stay for five days. Right by some great resturants and a short ride to the main attractions of Cape Town. The staff are very friendly and are willing to get to know you and help out as much as possible.

It's very clean and most of the staff members are helpfull. But it's very noisy at night/evening. So if you are a light sleeper you won't get much sleep. And in the weekends there can be a lot of drunk locals at the bar.
