Nice hostel I would recommend. Situated next to a busy road but you don't even notice. After a 25 min walk you can get to the VA Waterfront. In the morning other people can be noisy, It didn't bother me. You can ask the staff anything, they are happy to help. Its a very cosy hostel. The facilities to make your own dinner are okay, the store is a 5 min walk. The showers and toilets are clean and nice. Jon is awesome!

I had a wonderfull stay at The Sunflower Stop. Friendly and helpfull staff, close to the beach and city center. A little bit noisy from the street when you sleep in the front rooms. Free coffee available and supermarket very close. Sheets could do with a change. Definitely a highly recomended place to stay in Cape Town.


Great location with just walking distance to take bus, groceries, restaurants, bars.The place are generally safe as lady can walk by herself in this area. Clean hostel and near to go to beach.


This hostel needs to do an overhaul on their facilities. The bathrooms are in the middle of the hallway and our room was stiflingly hot with only one working ceiling fan. Having said that, taking into consideration all factors, this was the best hostel (out of the six we stayed at in or around Cape Town). The location is ideal, they have a pool, they BBQ'd and offered salad and bread, bar out front, nice kitchen, clean, friendly. Totally worth the money!
