We spent 3 nights here in a private room. It was spacious and clean (although the bathroom felt a bit unfinished and thus not the cleanest). The staff was very nice and had great recommendations! The breakfast was quite extensive and tasty. Nice large kitchen and living room and even quite a spacious parking lot behind their fence. All in...

A really nice and cosy hostel, staff is really welcoming and didnt need to wait until a certain time to check in into my room, it was very clean and beautiful with a garden and a swimming pool, most of the people who where staying there "lived" in stellenbosch so not much backpackers. But nice and calm if you wanna...

Nice place to stay in Stellenbosch. Since I was arriving to Stellenbosch at 9am, they booked me in advance an excellent wine tour. The pool was excellent after a long hot day of drinking wine. The kitchen was well equipped and the breakfast was complete.

Stayed in a 6-bed dorm. Seemed quite small but at the same time there was enough room for all of us. Bathrooms outside of the rooms kept clean and shower worked well. The pool is a nice addition. It takes around 30 minutes to walk to the town (through the university campus area) where there are plenty of restaurants. Breakfast...

Lloyd the receptionist was brilliant. He knew everything about the local and further areas. He was great fun. Their pool is the best thing to a long warm day in Stellenbosch. Perfect for a quiet day sun bathing. Or perfect for socializing with the great bunch of people this hostel gets. Dorms are basic. But very cool during the evening...

I booked a single room for two nights. Arrival was fine and I settled in. I felt something scuttle around my pillow and noticed a strange bug. I've never seen this kind before, which is strange as I'm South African... I killed it and to my surprise, a lot of blood came out. I realised it was a bed bug...

We stayed here as a group of 4 and stayed in one of the 4 bedded dorms. Booking this was easy by contacting the hostel directly and paying on arrival. The place was spotlessly clean and as noisy as you expect hostels to be. The pool and braai area was really nice and they have a good secure car park....

Nice and cozy little place in Stellenbosch, fully equipped kitchen and very nice with the free breakfast included. We were though a little bit unlucky I think, as we arrived on a sunday where the owners wasn’t around, and the noice that the staff created during several hours this day, was almost unbearable… They were standing in 3 different parts...

Great location- less than a mile to centre of town. Comfortable clean room. good shower. Free wifi and towels. Good clean kitchen and communal area. Nice touch to get free breakfast. We also did the easy wine tour which saved us money on our stay- would recommend. Thanks

“The 4 bed dorm with en suite is great, as it's upstairs with a view over the pool and relatively quiet.”

“Unless you specifically want a private room, the dorm room is worth the reasonable price.”
