Climbing up their stairs feels like an extreme sport . More so if you are tipsy and in heels. You'd be on the 3rd floor and still seeing the reception's head all the way down at the ground floor

First of all I don't understand why this hotel is even regarded as a 4-star hotel.It is very poor in terms of accommodating large groups. They lye to their customers through the booking process, promising heaven although the reality is the exact opposite. We were a group of 72 when we checked in into this hotel...they packed us like cabbages,while on our arrangements they promised us that there will be 6 single bed per dome...they packed 12 beds per dome. Showers are releasing cold water,some of the rooms were dirty with used condoms under the bed. The worse part when one is raising a concern the management do not in anyway indicating to care...They take an advantage that once you paid and arrived you won't change.It is very bad!!!

Great clean hostel with friendly staff. Just far enough away from the action to be sensible. It is NOT a party hostel. Good well equipped kitchen. Excellent wifi with computer access for downloading cameras. It has a small bar. Towels are provided. Most attractions walkable and near to bus stops for travel around the city

review by Chris Dale

"1 of the best thus far"

Spent 3 nights there, will probably rate is 1 of the best and cleanest backpackers I've stayed at in cape town . Great staff! Only problem is that the kitchen sometimes gets a bit cramped. Will definitely go back.
