Property Information:

Backpackers District Six -within the historical Castle Hotel Building - is situated in the rapidly developing new East City precinct of Cape Town.

Two minutes walk to the District Six Museum, 5 minutes walk to The Cape town Castle . Both the Assembly and Retro's Night Clubs are within 1 minutes stroll from the lodge

Due to the Function venue below the rooms the hostel can be very noisy

With the Cape Town University of Technology up the Road the area is a buzz with students who will show you to the nearby Student haunts such as Mercury lounge (live music venue)and The Shack , which is a great meeting venue

For those more discerning visitors The Harley Davidson Club of Cape Town is a stones throw away

Within the Lodge we have a licensed pub serving meals and pool tables at R2.00 a game

Bring you hired car along as we have 7 free parking bays which in the middle of Cape Town is unheard off

Traditional Braaivleis (barbecue ) is offered every Saturday from 13h00 and is available as a self use any other day o0f the week

Please note that we require full pre-payment of the balance for bookings for the FIFA World Cup 2010. After you have made your booking, we will contact you to arrange the payment. No cancellations or amendments for these bookings. Minimum 7 nights stay during this time.

    I found the information on Hostelbookers very misleading. As a young woman traveling alone I felt very unsafe. There was no other backpackers, only older men staying here. There was a terrible lack of security-no lockers, no left luggage, no safe, and posters everywhere warning about leaving luggage unattended. There is no common room-its just a bar/pub with some rooms above it. But the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
