    Great place to stay! Supermarkets, ATM, restaurants nearby. Staff is amazing, thanks so much to Katrin and Alex! You can book all kinds of different tours with them like Wine Tasting, guided tours to a Township, etc. They also have their wonderful driver Craig available with whom you can arrange transfers from/to the airport + any other destination in/around Cape Town.

    One of the best hostels, if not THE best, at which I've ever stayed because the staff are so fantastic. I had a fiasco involving a lost credit card that the staff worked tirelessly to assist me with, unloading some of the stress and panic that came with being without money in a foreign country. Comfortable and clean, nice location, great atmosphere for meeting other guests.

    Amazing staff, very helpful with arranging my things, I really appreciate their attitude. I was staying in single room, it was bit small, but enough just to oversleep.

    Safe and clean hostel. In an awesome location. The hostel caters to a mix of people- individual travellers to families. One night I did have a screaming baby next door to my room... the hostel does not generate much atmosphere- nothing was planned for New Years/ culture celebrations. Suits those who want to lie low in Cape Town.
