Great place to stay, it has a great location near the stadium and the city center, walking distance from the Water Front. For me there were only two things that I did not expect: 1. the breakfast was very basic, but upon reflection, it reflected the price, it's a hostel of course and not a 5* hotel. If you need a great breakfast there a nice restaurant(forgot the name) no more than a 5 min walk from there. 2. I was freezing! I stayed in a room for 4 people and while we had 2 heaters it was still quite cold for me when not under the blanket, it was alright, but just a little unconfortable to get dressed or shower in the morning. Overall it's one of the best hostels I've stayed at in over 40 countries I've visited, very friendly staff and great location.

Excellent value for money, centrally placed.
Friendly and accommodating staff, although a Backpackers hostel, accommodated all age groups and the private facility rooms were lovely. Great value for money and flexibility with meals as there was a communal kitchen.

A Hostel for backpackers & Partners!!
Visited Cape Town early February looking for a reasonable priced accommodation in a private double room. Located in green point an ideal location due to transportation links around the hostel as well as walking distance to the pier. It is also close to some great food joints such as Rocco mama's (Highly recommended), lions head mountain and a local supermarket. The room itself is basic but that coincides with the price as you are not paying a lot for a night so a basic room was expected. The room consists of Double Bed, 2 side draws, Wall mount TV, tall slim cupboard and a separate bathroom as well as a window which has bars attached on the outside. . Due to the severe drought in Cape Town the hostel like to enforce a only flush rule if it's essential and when your showering to do so in a large water so they can collect the water every night and use it for other resources such as gardens and filtering. The hostel have a great way of reaching out and bringing backpackers and hostel users together by organising daily activity boards so you know what is on and use their sister company ‘Atlantic Outlook to organise water based activities. Overall a great hostel to stay at whether you’re a Backpacker or even a couple looking for a cheap yet efficient accommodation.

Se parece mais um hostel... o café da manhã não é bom... Porém, o quarto é bem espaçoso e confortável.
