Great location and the staff are awesome! John, Chris and Jojo were great, very nice and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay there and highly recommend it! Thanks John for booking me a room in the last minute.

Josh and jojo are great guys, very friendly, happy and always willing to help, call and look things up for you. The hostel itself is spotless clean and fresh with a great location at the end of longstreet, so the noisiness will not bother you!

Creepy men ready to jump at you from the ceiling... No seriously! Very cool though. Conveniently located near bars, restaurants and safe enough to walk and good transport system. The backpacker had character and a charm about it.

Stayed at Cat & Moose for a week. The service from the gentlemen (John in particular) at the reception was amazing. The atmosphere is quiet and the small garden and pond gives the place a beautiful ambiance. It's located right in the heart of town...More

If you want the hero, the legend, the ORACLE of Cape Town, come to Cat & Moose. John can make it stop raining if he has his mind to it. Only bad thing to say about this place is that it's a vortex that sucks...More
