Property Information:

The Baobab, also known as the Tree of Life, is a symbol of strength, resilience and comfort. It is a source of food, water and shelter in the African Savannah regions. This is what we hope The Baobab on Lower Main will come to represent to all who visit us. We offer clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation aimed mainly at students, young professionals and backpackers. Internet, laundry, Satellite TV and all ensuite rooms on offer.
The Baobab on Lower Main is in Observatory, Cape Town. We are on a bustling corner of this historic suburb, surrounded by small businesses and private homes that are among the oldest buildings in South Africa.
We provide comfortable and affordable accommodation that is ideally located, close to the public transport network (walking distance to the train station, taxis, buses and Jammie Shuttle), and to the humming nightlife that characterises the area. Whether you need transport, groceries, take-out food, pubs, restaurants its all a short walk away.

Our hostel has a no smoking policy.

    The hostel is located in a seedy end of town, be sure to park IN FRONT of the hostel, not on side street. I was harassed by my car. The building seems to be a converted warehouse, the rooms small and basic, the walls separating the bedroom from the toilet do not go all of the way to the ceiling. Walls are paper thin, we were not staying anywhere near the common room but still heard the TV clearly at night. The walls shudder and shake all night long, rooms are hot, opening the window didn't help.
