Pros: Walking distances to restaurants Cheap underground and secure parking available Cons: Atmosphere seemed a bit grim Very dirty Windows broken in room Plug in room for fan was very dangerous with wires exposed


Not a bad place to stay, could use a little renovation though.


Altogether it certainly was not bad but when I compare the hostel to other locations we have been in (also in capetown) some things come to mind: - try to clean up some details abit more, for example the wind blowers where very dirty. - try to avoid using TL light: it makes the place look dark and unwelcome - use more colours instead of just the blue. For the rest: thnx for everything! Very friendly employees and manager.
