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

Our stay in Banghoek Place Hostel was very enjoyable. The friendly staff booked us onto a Wine Tour (with a discount) before we had even check in and looked after our bags while we were away. They provided some great advice on activities to do and were very helpful with any problems during our stay. We stayed in a 4...

Banghoek Place is a professionally run establishment with great staff who are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. This is a quiet place so great if you want to relax in the evenings. Its close to the centre of Stellenbosch and only a short walk into town. They serve a free breakfast in the morning, which...

it is located in the area of the university, this is what I needed. The staff was very helpful. If I need it I will definitely stay here again. Free breakfast is also a bonus. Maybe the location of sockets could be better

We always love to stay at Banghoek, whether it be as a couple or with family. This trip was no exception. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm room with an en suite. The price was very reasonable at R 180 pp/pn including a light breakfast with boiled eggs, toast, yogurt, jam, cheese and fruit, which was more than enough....

Banghoek Place is not the cheapest but it is very clean, more for the older traveler, peaceful, in a central location and the staff are friendly. Breakfast is included and tours and shuttles can be arranged. I don't know which is the nicest room to ask for because I was put in a private room that was cold and had...
