    I definitely had a blast. I met some wonderful colleagues, Who I am already keeping in touch with. The staff was very attentive to my every request. And the happy hour bar is a lot of fun.

    Great location, very safe and good vibes. It has an on-site bar, swimming pool and kitchen. Everywhere in Cape Town is within easy reach by Uber and at the reception desk you can book all sorts of activites.

    Spent 5 nights in total in this hostel: 2 nights first, then I came back for 3 more after a few days. The swimming pool is great, the bar is good and I really liked how there was a BBQ area for guests. For me, the experience is mostly about the people you meet, though. I met some cool people, but obviously, people come and go. The location is good too, right next to Kloof Street and Long Street, but I stayed in Green Point after this, and preferred that part of the city to this one.
