    Just needed to stay overnight somewhere after watching South Africa play at Newlands. Arrived at about 10 pm, check-in was straight-forward. I stayed in the private room with shared bathroom. The room itself had a good bed and was quiet. Very good night's sleep. No safe in the room. Bathrooms were fine. Kitchen facilities were good. No concerns at all. Nice place. Good location, just further down from lower main st where everything is but far enough that you can sleep in peace.

    Rooms were spacious. The place was kept clean. The major thing letting this down is how many long term residents are staying here. We were the only backpackers for about 5 days

    My bed didn't have any pillow or blanket upon arrival as if someone had left and they didn't reset it. The dorm room smelled horrible and the other people in it seemed to have been living there and were loud with the lights and noise throughout the entire night, 3-5am when I had an early morning flight. There was food all over the place in the room (and eating at 4am with lights on) when there are common areas. Pretty sure the guy in the next room was a drugs. Inconsiderate and sloppy space.
