Great location in the heart of Obs. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere very laid back. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen clean. The one bathroom is certainly a lot better than the other and the hinges on the door to Obs dorm needs oiling desperately! Ditto some creaky floorboards. The outdoor furniture on that side likewise needs a bit of TLC. Otherwise I would say a big thanks to the guys who run the place and hope to see you again in the future!


The staff are lovely, our double room was great although the curtain to our ensuite was strange .. Needs a door. Good location if you want to hang out in that area although it is a fair trip into the heart of cape town. The area can be a bit sketchy at night but that's Cape Town and the security into the building is very adequate making us feel very safe.
