Staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms werde clean, although only basically furnished.
In general a very nice hostel but ... - a bit too far from the center - Unfortunately, some rooms were freshly painted therefore there was a strange smell in the corridors - I also saw a cockroach in the corridor :-( - the beton walls/floors are not everyones taste.
Great coffee...even better staff.
A very nice place well located with kind and efficient staff. We loved the place.

Room did not seem to be completed yet, for instance the walls were not plastered at all. Very positive was the mosquito net on top of the bed. Although it's not perfect, it is the best hostel in Stellenbosch we have seen so far.
I liked the modernity of Banghoek and some nice touches like a pool (though VERY green when we were there), HUGE restaurant-style fridge for guests to store their goods, and water fountain. There were some cobwebs dangling from the ceiling that could have been swept away before our arrival, but overall cleanliness was good. We didn't mind the 15 minute walk to the center of town that passed through Stellenbosch University campus. I would recommend staying there!
