    Friendly staff, safe place. Bring your own lock for the locker (they are in the room) and own towel (otherwise R50 / day).

    One of the great hostels of the world - easy to meet people; great view of Table Mountain and good staff. Very annoyed about the security situation - three people had knives put to their throat outside on different days yet when we told the staff they didn’t care.

    Be careful with your things as security gate is often open. Security guard often no on gate. Reception shuts at night and I was left trying to get into the hostel from the street, as no security guard, then trying to find staff to check in. It was only 10.30pm! Staff generally unhelpful and unwelcoming but will begrudgingly answer questions about Cape Town/tours. Breakfast ok. Safe to walk to Kloof St which has many food, drink and shopping options.

    The Backpack was the first of two hostels I stayed in while in Cape Town. It was really great. Very clean with friendly staff. They offered several security features and the WiFi was okay. Parking is 50R/night. But the bar is loud and going all night, and some of the staff can be less than professional. Also, for the cost, the location isn’t great. A typical fun hostel, but overpriced, considering what you can get for much cheaper.

    A little overpriced. My 8-bed dorm was quite cramped and had just a single pedestal fan to cool the room. Facilities are basic and there’s probably not enough bathrooms for the number of beds. The lockers can easily be opened without unlocking the padlock, but safes are provided which was great. The area outside the hostel is not safe at night (or even in the day really) however inside the hostel is extremely secure. Outdoor area by the pool is amazing, and the bar area is great for socialising.
