    Probably the best hostel I have ever stayed at - the staff are great, the facilities are amazing and squeaky clean (there's also a pool), and completely safe with gated parking lots. The only thing I can say is that this place is NOT a party hostel - everything was dead quiet by 10 pm. However, still a great communal area that's really social in the morning during breakfast. They also organize free activities/outings many times a week.

    Best place ever. Staff is amazing, very friendly and super helpful. They organised bunch of tours for us, recommended great restaurants and were overall rockstars. Rooms are very nice, comfy beds, nice bathrooms. I would say, you get comfort of nice hotel combined with very social and friendly backpacking environment. It was super easy to make new friends and explore Cape Town together.

    Absolutely loved this hostel! The staff was amazing- they helped set up tours, transportation, and kept the hostel lively and fun. The facilities themselves were beautiful and clean- bed was super comfortable and overall was quiet at night. There is a main room where people tend to sit and hangout, which provided a friendly and social atmosphere. The only thing to mention is that the hostel is in a neighborhood, so I ended up ubering a lot of places.
