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!


A vibrant and lively place, we had an amazing time at Sunflower. Private room was super clean and comfy and communal areas are clean and well equipped. Wednesday "braai night" was awesome (and I can imagine a great treat for foreign travelers) - staff supplied fire, pap, sauce and salads and we had a great jol at the bar with other guests until the early hours. We were worried about parking outside in the busy street but this turned out OK. Love Sunflower Stop, will definitely be back.


The facilities need some improvement, but it's fairly close to the airport and good value.
