clean, modern facility, nice kitchen, you can go to the Center of Stellenbosch by foot, small dorm rooms without wardrobe


A nice hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. Location is pretty good though we were glad to have a car. Good common areas for lounging, cooking and eating. Overall a nice place to stay.


Altough the place looks industrial, the communcal area, kitchen facilities, garden, pool, braai area, parking inside the gate and the friendlyness of the staff make up for that. This may be the best backpackers in Stellenbosch.


Relaxed atmosphere with en-suite double rooms around 15 minutes by foot from the city center of Stellenbosch.


Please provide more towels in the kitchen, i saw people rubbing the ground with it, and 2 days later the same towel was still in the kitchen...this seems to be an overall problem in sa backpackers. Are these so expensive then?

Having stayed here twice before, we were disappointed this time. Waited 1/2hour at the pedestrian gate since the bell wasn’t working.The on-suite room was clean.Shower in the bathroom is a showerhead protruding from the ceiling right next to the toilet – no curtains or cubicle, the entire place, incl the toilet was soaking wet after each shower. Internet was excruciatingly slow, stopped trying to connect after a few hours.A great place, however the establishment is in need a major overhaul IMO.


Loyd, the guy working there, helped with everything, bathroom facilities were old and not really clean. No lockers in the dorm. I do not unterstand the good reviews for this hostel.
