Boat bed rocks
Great mix of rooms for a well designed and comfortable hostel type accomodation. Stayed in one of the private en-suite which was designed in sea trawler theme with the bed as wooden boat.

One night stay
I only stayed one night so it is a limited experience but the place was decent, a lot of traffic noise as it is right on a round about but overall it is a decent spot for a stay.. The manager or owner was extremely helpful with helping me organize my future plans with my vacation..

Great hostel with friendly staff
This is a great hostel with some great staff. It has a small bar which becomes a good social hub in the evening. Breakfast was cooked to order every day. It has good secure parking at the back of the building. There are a few good restaurants and bars close by, and if you're there on a Saturday the Biscuit Mill market is a must. If you want downtown Cape Town or the waterfront and Uber costs about R60.
