Showers werent as clean..
Great location with friendly staff.
I stay at the Backpack for 2 weeks and I love it! The location is perfect, you're close to the Long street, supermarkets, table mountain, lions head, Champs bay and kap-boo. I slept in a four bed room for the last 2 weeks and I had a lot of great room mates. So book the backpack you would love it!

Great location close to all important sights, good view of Table Mountain, refreshing salt water pool, pretty communal areas, good breakfast, friendly, helpful staff
Tutu Room itself pretty dark and basic, shower (private room) didn’t work properly and had a strange smell sometimes
