Fun hostel located right off the water in the center of town. Great common areas including a large kitchen and a huge balcony overlooking the beach. Huge rooms. A bit noisy as it is on the main road right next to a train station and is a bit of a party hostel. Great place to stay though better for younger people.


This place is amazing, you get all what you need for your trip hear. Fantastic view from the balcony facing the beach. All their staffs are amazing and very helpful. definitely recommend this place and I will be back here again. Love you all Stoked gang :)


I appreciated the friendliness and accommodating attitude from all of the staff members. The hostel was very clean and accurately represented on their webpage. I would definitely stay here again!


Loved it here, great everything easy to meet people, you should definitely stay here!!!


Reception in the 1st night was not very helpful but the day after was great. This hostel is not in Cape Town and that was disappointing for me but it was my fault since I did not pay attention to that when booking. If you are a surfer, you are at the right place, since it is right in front of the beach but that is it. There is not much else to do nearby. If you are looking to visit Cape Town, you can expect an hour train ride to hit the town. Also, We didnt feel very safe at night.

Friendly staff. If one needs to stay exactly in Muizenberg, the location is great next to the railway station and within a walking distance from bars and restaurants. The seven bed dorm is cool with one of the beds on a mezzanine floor which makes sleeping there almost feel like sleeping in a single room with the added benefit of having a view to the sea from the window.


Kia and Jeremy are the best!
