Breakfast is not included in the online room rates, however we serve a continental breakfast for all B&B rooms from 8-10am including fruits, juice, jam, honey, cereals, selection of cold meats and cheese as well as rolls and the best croissants in town (we think :-)

    We spent 3 days at the House on the Hill during our short visit to Capetown. Its in an excellent location near the Stadium and a short 20 minute walk along the waterfront to the V& A Mall at the harbor. The rooms are clean and pleasant with lots of light, the facilities modern and well maintained. The staff, particularly Ruda, were very friendly and helpful, calling cabs when we needed and making other tour arrangements. The cost was very reasonable, about half of what one would pay in the US

    Exactly what we needed - clean, safe, and easily accessible. Breakfast was a nice added bonus! This isn't the hostel for you if you're interested in finding a place to hang out or meet people, but a great place to sleep, freshen up, and launch your further Cape Town adventures.

    This is the second time I have stayed at this hostel, and for good reason. It's always clean, quiet, has good facilities (including fridges and a kitchen so you can cook), its secure and the location cant be beat. I'll always stay here when I'm in CPT.

    This was a great place to stay with my two children. The staff was very helpful in helping me get set up with transportation to and from the airport, as well as giving me resources to activities. The wifi was surprisingly good. There were restaurants nearby, and the V&A Waterfront was about a 15-20 min walk away, which had tons of activities. We felt quite safe. We used a self-catering room and the shared kitchen facilities were quite nice. The price was outstanding and we'd stay here again!

    We made a mistake with our booking, but the owner kindly moved us to a bigger room for our family. The breakfast is great and the house is very safe and quiet, in a good area. I would stay there again. Great for families. Thanks.

    The only problem we had was that upon arrival the member of staff who greated us was not welcoming. When we arrived we asked to book a wine tour for the following day, it seemed a big bother for her to do. We were disappointed the following day after waiting over an hour for the tour operators to arrive at the accommodation. After asking at reception for more information was told to wait. We then discovered that she had failed to book the tour. We missed out on this tour on our short trip.

    A great little place really near the waterfront which was walkable in 10 minutes, anything else was a car ride away I would say. The room was comfortable and clean but the wifi was iffy and kept going off at all times of the day so you couldn't really rely on it. There was however s tv and tea/coffee making facilities in the room which was nice. Staff were friendly and helpful.
