I had to come here last minute as my place I needed to stay fell through. It was in the lonely planet book, so I figured it would be okay. I can never be 100% sure, but I think some of my money was stolen at this hostel. I did not share a room with anyone. I don't think I...

I am most distressed to hear that you feel this way. I can assure you that we have been in business for more than 24 years and if staff steal, my business would not prosper. You yourself mentioned that you did not close your door properly - other guests could also have walked by and seen that. We do provide...

Exactly what I was expecting as far as what the website advertised. Staff is friendly and helpful, booking day tours and giving good advice on things to do in and around the city. Would definitely stay here again!

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. The pool was allright and so were the facilities. Four shared showers and three toilets for about 40 people on one floor is not great. We were in a room on the ground floor and at the front of the building, very noisy at night. Guests were quite on their...

Thank you so much for your review. There are actually more toilets around the corner and a great deal more toilets and showers upstairs.... I am sorry that you found it noisy at night - the building has wooden floors and sometimes sound does travel. I trust that you enjoyed your stay in Cape Town though? Regards Lisa

Very good hostel with pool and garden located close to the city centre in Cape Town. A separate desk for travel booking was very good. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. ATM at the hostel that didn't charge any fee for withdrawals (as most other ATM's in South Africa do). Excellent with separate safes for each guest in every room....

Awesome hostel. Super friendly and sociable atmosphere. Very well set up for meeting lots of new people. Definitely made some friends for life here. Dorms are comfortable and clean, bar/communal area is very cool. Great location for getting in and out of city centre. Very safe.

Oh dear - I am so sorry that everything wasn't to your liking. Our building is a Victorian mansion and it is tricky with installing power outlets but we are in the midst of putting USB chargers at every single bed which should help a lot! I am horrified about the dead bug... that should have been removed immediately, so...

“Can sometimes be noisy with young travelers sitting on balcony outside your room but that was just where i was put and it didn't affect my sleep so not too bad ”

“Try to get a room on the upper Floor and at the back of the building. That's probably less noisy”
