Very good location to stay. Short walking distance of waterfront and about 20 min walk to Longstreet. There is a supermarket around the corner. Staff is very friendly and makes sure you will enjoy your stay. There is free parking in the street.

the hostel is a few minutes away from the waterfront. A pretty place, quite familiar. The beds where made every day. Showers and restrooms are on the floor and to share with the other guests, but nothing wrong with that.

I booked a night for four people and we got a room with two single beds and a bunk bed. The staff is very friendly and helpful (and a bit chaotic). There's a pool in the garden, perfect to relax (not all day long). The hostel is near the waterfront, we took the car to get there though. In my...

We stayed in the house at the side of the hostel in a room designed for 4 with its own bathroom. We paid the equivalent of £30/night. There was also a second double room in the house with its own bathroom. The two rooms shared a large lounge and kitchen. The rooms themselves were a generous size and you could...

I stayed here by myself in a single room to explore Cape Town the weekend after the conference I was going to for work ended. When I arrived, Marshall, who checked me in was really helpful - calling up Robben Island to try and get me a ticket and giving me advice on how to get to Table Mountain. I...

If you want an affordable clean place to stay in Cape Town then here is your place! I'm a 20 year old student travelling alone from the UK and the staff here have made me feel so welcome and at home. Anna and all the girls here work so hard to keep the place lovely and clean for all visitors....

I was renting a room with two friends for about a week. Everything is very clean and the whole property is well secured. Free wifi, well equipped kitchen and a bus station nearby. The staff is awesome, very friendly and helpful with any kinds of questions. Very recommended place to stay at.

Stayed her whilst completing a yachting course at the Waterfront in May 2014. Accommodation was clean and staff friendly. Rooms nice and neat. Nice TV room, with large flat screen tv. Will be back to stay in the near future when I am back in Cape Town.

Some lodges are truly flea nests, and I've stayed at many. Not St. Johns, it is truly the cleanest lodge I've stayed at in over 30+ lodges/backpackers. The staff, Anna and Elsie, are great people, very friendly, awesome! Everyone, including Stephanie the Owner, was very helpful in any and all ways. I was on a Super-Yachting / Maritime Training Course...
