We had a great stay at this hostel, the rooms were lovely and really clean. We had a great view table mountain. The breakfast was very filling but we had to pay 30 ZAR each (£1.60 so totally worth it). They have free bottles of water at the bar and good selection. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the security guys were amazing! The area can be a bit dodgy so be very careful at night, speak to security before leaving the hostel especially at night! And get taxis were possible.
Die Mitarbeiter waren immer sehr nett und haben immer freundlich angeboten bei der planung von ausflügen etc zu helfen und zu beraten. Einfach super! Ich habe mich sofort zu haus gefühlt und bin svhon etwas traurig bald gehen zu müssen.
Awesome staff, environment, location and food!
Beautiful hostel! Location is great, perfect if you want a quiet place to sleep but still be close to the nightlife as long St is a two minute walk away. Staff are very friendly and the beds are so comfortable! The breakfast was also very nice. Definitely recommend :)
Thanks for a great stay! Very helpful staff.

this place is certainly overpriced, though the rooms are very nice. breakfast is not included, though hostelworld seems to think it is. good location. one issue we had is that when we tried to check out in the early morning, before staff came in, the security gaurd could not give us our key money back because he had not been left the money, despite a staff member assuring me that it'd be fine the day before. they need to get organized in that respect. our trip was delayed because of it,
