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.


It is a really cheap Hostel/Dorm in a area with great history. The staff is really nice,too! It's location is very central, you can reach anypoint from the city here(Loop street, district six museum, docks, city bowl,the castle of good hopes...). The area is absolutely save, though it doesnt seem like that at first sight. It also has a little nice bar with nice people and also very cheap (drinks, food). If you want a cheap and central stay in CT I can definitely recommend this underrated Hostel!
