We traveled in Sept 2014, and stayed about 7 days in Cape Town, before heading to Johannesburg and Kruger Park. Had breakfast at this hotel one day. Food is good, and affordable. We ate at the outside corridor over-looking the main road, but, it was OK. Recommend to any traveler who needs to eat reasonably good food at a reasonable... More

Stayed one night, very comfortable, nice management and staff. Not 5 stars, but a very pleasant experience. Spend some time in the pub, great vibe. the rooms are located upstairs, and there is a wonderful old world feel about the place. The meals, though not luxurious are tasty and value for money.

Went with a group of friends for drinks at the bar and had an average experience. Beers were cold however the barman on duty had a massive problem with us paying by card even though each round was more than R100. Stay for one beer, bring cash, but after the beer go to one of the many other bars in... More

Quite basic but centrally located. Friendly staff who were always willing to help. Dorm room was a bit noisy but this was kind of expected. Nice balcony area ideal for chatting at end of day. Wifi connection ropey but available - computer also available for use. Budget accomodation

We had a few drinks and grabbed a quick dinner on our last night in CT. Staff very friendly, but one can see that the building is in need of an update. We sat outside on the pavement which is good for some "people-watching" - of which we saw all shapes and sizes - a real mixed culture pot. Food... More

We stayed over for a weekend in august as a birthday present for my boyfriend. The 'haunted' room was our home for 2nights. With our own balcony overlooking the beauty of the heart of cape town, the room was well equipt with the basics. The staff were friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed spending time in the bar.

Clean room, but sheets with holes and didn't feel nice, kitchen VERY greasy and dirty. Dirty dishes left in the fridge (gross), washed dishes (by the staff) still greasy, sometimes no dishwashing liquid there to clean them by oneself. Everything is very, very old and doesn't give the feeling of a real backpackers. Staff friendly. Furniture on the balcony also... More
