    I had an incredible time in Cape Town, and it was because of the staff and community at Awesome Backpackers. The staff was more welcoming than any hostel or hotel staff I have ever encountered. They invited guests to activities from hikes to markets to watching the sunset and the beach, hosted a braai (SA version of a barbecue) for us, and were helpful with anything I needed. As a solo traveler, Awesome immediately felt like my home and I cancelled my next hostel to stay here an extra week.

    Awesome Backpackers was wonderful - so wonderful that my friend and I stayed there multiple times during our trip. The staff is warm and welcoming and the place feels like home. The outdoor areas are beautiful and the nightly bonfire was nice to come home to after days out hiking. The location is safe and close to some coffee shops and grocery stores. If you want to experience Cape Town nightlife, the guys can recommend some great spots. If I come back to Cape Town, I would stay at Awesome again

    I stayed here for about a week and it was a good base in Cape Town, the staff are all awesome and you feel like your at home there. You can be quiet or you can party. This place gives you the option for both.

    This place was amazing! Not only are the people who work/run the place incredibly helpful with anything that you may need, but they also do a great job of creating a welcoming atmosphere that really feels like home, even after only a few days. This is one of the best hostels that I have had the pleasure of staying in over many years of travel and would highly recommend this to anybody that is looking for a warm, welcoming place to experience Cape Town.

    Good location, friendly staff, good cooking facilities. Not much talking in communal areas. Slept poorly due to a snorer but not the fault of the hostel!

    The hostel was fine. It is close to the waterfront but walked once and didn’t really feel safe walking around. There is no curtain for the woman’s shower so water gets all over the bathroom. Kitchen had all the basic equipment but was very small and no freezer. The staff was nice but it was difficult to meet people and there weren’t a lot of people around in the hostel.

    The hostel seems more set up for the volunteers (non paid staff) to have a good time than it did the guests-the music is loud from 8am right through to they finish drinking in the early hours. The 5 bed dorm actually has an area where the volunteers sleep, so it's not 5 bed-Had to listen to the couple that were up there getting amorous as people walked in and out. Not enough showers for how many people stay there. Tiny kitchen. Appalling wifi, it worked sometimes and then nothing at all.

    Had to leave after one night - the staff/volunteers were partying til 5am in the reception area that is directly next door to the first dorm. It was hugely inconsiderate for those who wanted/needed to sleep - they started playing music at reception at 3am and I had to crawl out of bed in my pyjamas to ask them to stop and there were no apologies. Such a shame as the hostel looks beautiful. Only one toilet/shower per gender.

    the worse hostel ever, I booked a room for a friend of mine in a 5 mixed beds room, at her arrival the horrible women at the desk put her in a 15 bed room and told her that it was better for her so I aurgued with her to put her in the the room that I booked and paid for she moved her to an 8 bed and eventually put her in the 5 bed rooms at this point she was rude and angry, my friend went out to get something to eat and when she came back there was a guy in her bed. and with no explanations at all
