This is the best hostel I stayed in in Zambia. Although a little out of town the facilities were great, even offering me an upgraded room as it was vacant and helping me with an airport transfer.

This is a really quirky hostel just out of town. Compared to a hotel stay this place is excellent value for money and it is really easy to book tours from here - the owner was really helpful.

This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a hostel close to the airport or for a quick stopover. The owner was extremely helpful and understanding given my delayed flight.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel on Hostelworld.com. We are beyond delighted to hear that you felt this was the best hostel you have stayed in and that the staff were great towards you while you were here. We too love our view of Table Mountain! It really is beauty to see from the swimming pool or cafe area of the hostel. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind Regards The Backpack Team

As an avid traveller who has stayed in 20+ hostels I have to say, I was impressed! The staff are extremely helpful, helping me by printing off maps, telling me the best things to do and even helping me find a place to stay in San Francisco! There is loads of activities on such as free hikes, cheap bar and the location was only two blocks away from the subway, making it really easy to get around- this is honestly the best hostel I have ever stayed in!

This is a nice hostel in a relatively good location. The staff are really friendly, however; the hostel did lack a bit of character and you really need a car to successfully get around.

This hostel was one of the most fun hostels I have ever stayed in. Although not the nicest, the atmosphere, how sociable it was really compensated. Everyone really got involved during my stay and I met so many new people - stay here for a weekend away!

The best hostel I've ever stayed in. I made friends here, it was more like staying in an apartment together with other travellers -I will always have fond memories of Vienna thanks to this place :)
