It's a good spot, close to Long Street but also far enough away. It's walking distance from Table Mountain and Long Street. The staff are really cool and the bar is set up for people to meet. I met some really cool people there and always had fun. It's not a party hostel so you don't get the dickheads who go to those hostels but everyone seems up for a beer. The two issues are the wifi which is free but terrible and the boss who occasionally visits during the day and ruins the vibe a bit.


excellent location, the rest right, anyway it could be better.

This is hands down the best hostel in the world.. It has it all: Great vibe, great location and security, awesome staff and lots of fun.. Besides that, the room are quite comfortable, and they give you free towels and all that stuff. Best city in the world has to come along with best hostel in the world.. definitely go!
