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.

O local é muito bom, muito limpo, agradável, porém tivemos problema com o pagamento. Mesmo com pagamento antecipado, quando fizemos reserva pelo No checkout tivemos que pagar novamente sob alegação de que o cartão não havia autorizado o pagamento, porém checamos que parte do pagamento já havia sido debitado do cartão.

Bom para interação
Limpeza dos banheiros e dormitórios deixa um pouco a desejar. No mais, acho que foi tudo conforme esperado. Equipe atenciosa, muitas atividades.

Privativo X Compartilhado
Ficamos uma noite no quarto compartilhado e depois mudamos para o quarto privativo. O quarto privativo foi ótimo, mas o compartilhado foi um pouco complicado, definitivamente não é para nós.
