Perfect Spot in Cape Town

Nice hostel with bar area, an excellent comprehensive breakfast and really friendly and helpful staff. They helped me book and arrange all of my activities in Cape Town.

Wonderful!

Good location (downtown and near the touristic sites). Very nice people and great service. The room was really beautiful and comfortable! Nice bar with a fire place. Good breakfast.

Great Value, Great Hostel

Hostel is central, safe, and great value for money. Breakfast is decent in a buffet style. There is a bar which isn't too busy but cheap. They offer safes, excursions, and a kitchen.
