Our Travel Centre can book anything from safaris, overland trips, daytrips, car rental and our staff can assist with planning your trip in Cape Town and throughout South Africa and Africa.
Soak up the sun with stunning views of Table Mountain, lounge about, order cocktails or fruit shakes and have a swim in the sparkling pool.
The mosaics on the walls were designed by one of Cape Town’s most sought after artists and were made as part of a community project.

Off street parking in front of our entrance. We have closed circuit cameras facing the car park too! Parking spaces can’t be booked ahead.
Please note for those that have a car, the guards welcome a tip of R20 a night to ensure the safety of your car. The tip is usually placed in the communal Tip Box.
Feel free to support our community shop and buy that last minute gift. All items are sourced locally and fair prices are paid to the artists.
Self Catering Kitchen
Save your cash and cook up your favourite meals in our fully equipped, self-catering kitchen.
Safes and Luggage Storage
No more hassles of waiting for the reception to find your moneybelt! All private rooms offer a safe with your own code (no keys) and there are additional safes free of charge around the hostel. Most dorms also have lockers for your luggage – but bring your own lock. Choose between normal and laptop safes. If you are planning to go away for a few days, you may store your luggage for R20 per day.
