    It was more of a hotel than a hostel. Private double room with en-suite and good value for money. Safe location with lots of bars and restaurants close by. Hostel organized many events like yoga and local markets

    Power cuts ( although not the properties fault really) Untrained staff (except for Ruth she was superb) System glitches led to a staff member walking into our room in the middle of the night and then the following evening we arrived back to the hostel with essentially an eviction notice on our door telling us to report to reception immediately. The problem was eventually sorted

    Great vibe. Conveniently located for activities and to different areas in Cape Town. Nice, friendly staff. Good facilities - clean rooms, comfy beds. Put on activities throughout week which are interesting and fun. Helpful with arranging activities outside of hostel.

    Lack of variety for breakfast. Could get very noisy. Some organisational errors meant that a guy was put into our female dorm, he arrived at 3am which was unnerving - sorted late the next day but they’d oversold rooms and its upsetting to wake to a guy in the bed above. Unhelpful to tour guides if male a booking not through hostel.

    The hostel has a WhatsApp group for all guests which is pretty sweet to meet new people and find companions for trips through Cape Town

    There were a lot of insects in the bathroom and the room smelled quite bad

    Lovely staff, a bed soft as a cloud and a vibe all day erlveryday..met ppl from around the world! They even hav a WhatsApp group where ppl post fun activities for us to join in on - yoga, hiking and free beer!

    It's a small thing but the bookshelf there just has novels and fiction. More varied bookshelf with afew more board games wlda made that space awesome.

    The room was so dirty. Carpet hadn't been vaccumed probably in a week, and the bathroom probably not cleaned same, cockroaches in there and mold in the bathroom ceiling, then there was dirty old towels and old brouchers covering a lot of the mini table by the mirror.
