    The Hostel is in a great location to access the coast as well as town. The walk to the waterfront is 15 minutes and via a busy road. The staff are very friendly and the vibe at the hostel is great. This hostel is great for solo travelers and small groups.

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at. The community that the staff cultivates here is so welcoming and inclusive, you’ll meet people immediately as a solo traveler. Rooms are clean, spacious, and feel very secure.

    It feels like a family there! I was thinking on going to other places, and was so happy with the decision I made at the end! I was working remotely and was completely able to do so

    Great hostel. Good location for hiking Lion's Head. Excellent staff and rooms. Hostel is a close walk from a grocery store, restaurants and cafe's. Vibe was relaxed and people living there were great. Very welcoming feel from the other travelers. Cleaning staff were amazing. Most of the staff at the front desk were excellent.

    Stayed here for 5 nights. It's the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The atmosphere is very friendly, the staff is so helpful and the vibe is good I was immediately welcomed by the other guests and it feels like you're joining a small family. There's a common WhatsApp group where people send updates on what they're up to and if anyone wants to join. I would go back again. Without doubt. The location is also very good and they have a proper braai in the garden :)

    I would suggest just finding a different place to be. The staff could use a serious overhaul. The lady at check in was very nice.. but there was obvious tension between some of the staff members. The cook here is very very unfriendly. They boast free breakfast but it's not free. The upstairs dorms are nice with a shower in the room but the dorms downstairs are crap. No one can assist with city tours or give suggestions on things to do (except table mtn. Pics are deceiving. Just don't.
