Overall stay in this hostel is good. There might be some flaws with your service but for sure you guys are doing your best to make every stay of your customers be worth remembering. I will surely be back in Capetown again and again.

Nice hostel and the private room was clean and quite big. The staff is always here to help and they organize a lot of activities every day but we didn't join any of them as we already had our own plans. The breakfast is really not enough though but it's already good to have one in this kind of hostels...... More

Located a 10-minute walk to V&A Waterfront and Robben Island Tours. Great area for shopping and just strolling around. Make lots of new friends and see lots of new things. Take the City Sightseeing Bus and have a whale of a time in Cape Town!

I only stayed for a little over 3 days, but I had a great time. The staff is lovely, the guests were fun, the facilities were good and the free breakfast (albeit pretty basic) is a big plus. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend everybody.
