    I have stayed at a lot of hostels around the world, so I have a good reference. never@home is really outstanding. Friendly staff, lots of trip-organizing help, in-house events, central location, in-house food and drink, social (but not too loud) atmosphere, very clean bathrooms ... I could go on and on. Rarely, maybe never, have I seen a place check so many boxes. I hope to make it back to Cape Town, and I definitely look forward to staying here again. Thanks guys (and gal)!

    Great place to stay, great staff. A 10-15 min walking distance from V&A waterfront, also has a liquor store e grocery besides for buying basics. Breakfast isn't included, but we do recomend, not expensive. Did a hiking tour with Phil to Lions head and was really nice, everyday the hostel has a tour planned.

    My check-in was a little rocky with the person working, but after that was a really nice stay. Great environment, helpful staff (except not the one guy who checked me in), nice accommodations, pleasant environment, and delicious breakfast!

    Very Good

    Overall an okay hostel. I would not consider this a party hostel. It has great security and an okay bar/pool area but not a party hostel. The rooms are basic, bathrooms somewhat clean. Usb on the beds are a nice touch. Far from long street but walking to touristy VA front. Forgettable hostel.
