    Superb

    Place was great! Clean bathrooms and rooms! Free breakfast (w/ option to pay more for more complete breakfast)! The location was great! Very close to Gardens area and Engen station with Woolies. Can walk to city center in 20 mins. Staff was pretty helpful. Great view of table mountain from the bathroom! Also, very nice open space to hangout near the bar. Pretty chill atmosphere. Not super social place, great if you want to relax. I would definitely consider staying here again!

    Fabulous

    Nice little hostel, location is pretty decent - not too far from table mountain cable car and a great view to it from the hostel as well. 45 minute walk to the waterfront, or 10 minute uber. Rooms are clean and comfortable, quite basic but functional. Bar is good, breakfast is good - we stayed in a private room so got the nicer one upstairs - and the pool area is nice to chill in. Room walls are thin, don't expect a good night's sleep every night...

    Fabulous

    Beautiful old building with spotless rooms and bathrooms. Our dorm was MASSIVE, but not all of them are. A bit too far from the city centre though for the price. Decently priced laundry and well equipped kitchen, but wish there was a better common space and more activities in the hostel itself. A lot of overland tours start/end here so that adds to the vibe.
