    Never at Home hostel is well located, close to the V@A, with plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops on the same street. It has great common areas, both indoors and outdoors. The kitchen is clean and well equipped. WiFi is strong and staff are great!

    Very clean and cosy rooms with good facilities (individual sockets and chargers, lockers for each bed). Convenient location with a Spar right next door. Staff were very friendly and helpful! Me and my friends really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to anyone!

    Great hostel, Fan & AC in room, large room bathroom and shower. Spotty wifi. Our room was next to the pool courtyard so music from there was audible in our room until the bar was closed, but nothing too bad.

    Great place to stay! This is definitely one of the top two hostels I have ever stayed in. It is conveniently located to so much (either by foot or by short Uber ride), and has great amenities. The wifi is actually really good (when they don't have power outages, that is), the facilities are all really clean (bathrooms and bedrooms), and the bar/restaurant/pool in the back is such a wonderful (and affordable) place to meet a bunch of people. Would definitely recommend!

    This hostel is great -it has everything you need. Rooms are cleaned every day, and there is loads of floor space in 16bed dorm. The only con i can think of is that there are a lot of different people living here, not only backpackers. During our stay an entire rugby team and their parents stayed here.

    Chilled hostel. I personally love the area but it's a bit far from city center. It is close to a park and beautiful promenade, so if you are looking to spend time at the beach this is a good choice. Not the best hostel for lone travelers who look to meet people as there are a lot of groups and bar closes early. Definitely not a party hostel, more of a nice guest house.

    Great spot! Location is good, cleanliness is good and great space and amenities. Staff was nice and friendly, some were very helpful. The only downside is it isn’t very social. While they have their own bar and big lobby living room, most people don’t hang out there or meet new people outside of their group. Still an excellent hostel and I recommend it!
