    This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at in terms of atmosphere and value. The hosts are very friendly and quite flexible, the place feels like a home and the other guests are interesting and respectful. I am a board surfer, and did not realize what a kite surfing Mecca there is in Big Bay. Nearly every other guest was here to kite surf. After seeing how much fun it looks, I plan on taking some lessons to pick it up for those days after the surf is blown out. Thank you M & C!

    This is one of the sweetest little hostels I've ever stayed at in all my years of traveling. There is a reason people keep coming back here year after year and for weeks/months at a time! The guests are wonderful, kind, generous, helpful, interesting, and more like family. The hosts are present and responsive. Location is a few minutes drive to the beaches and cafes. The house is filled with unique touches, like the charming windsurfboard showers. Really nice bunk room. Will return for sure!

    I had a great stay at the surf shack! I chose the location because it was near Blouberg beach. It's not particularly close to the centre of Cape Town but is a cool area to explore with great views of table mountain. The place was amazing, loved the pool! I didn't windsurf but practically everyone else did. Great atmosphere, loved the braai evening, everyone staying was super friendly. Owners were lovely and helpful and even drove me to the supermarket once. Would defiantly stay again!
