Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. We are happy to hear that you loved your staff with us and that you enjoyed the views of Table Mountain just as much as we do. It is lovely to hear that you were able to experience the awesome vibe that the bar/cafe does have, especially in the evenings. We hope you will visit us again soon. Kind Regards The Backpack Team
