HomeBase is the place to stay when you visit Cape Town. Its centrally located, walking distance to all the nightlife, safe, affordable and the best thing about it: THE STAFF. You will feel at home hanging out with the coolest hostel peeps in all of Cape Town. I specifically want to give a S/O to Carol from the front desk/bar for being such a kind and caring host! He approached my friends and I and gave us advice, took us around after his shift and made us feel so welcome! We had a lovely week thanks to him and his GF Julia, who so kindly, walked around with us and showed us all the best spots CPT has to offer. Carol, thanks for your hospitality and overall coolness, you make this hostel a 5-Star experience!!!!

Lived here for two months, was really a home to me. Its a party hostel but very well run. Good mix of travelers, locals, long and short term people. I miss this place!

HomeBase 37 Strand street Cape Town is one of the very few that should be re rated a very affordable price to pop in if you visiting or don't feel like people. The friendliest reception from when the call was made. All facilities are available in the kitchen and lounge 24/7 and the accommodation is amazing..

Location is really good, close to long street. Staff is super nice, rooms are clean, there is a lot of common space including a very nice balcony. It's also cheap, so in general a good choice for a hostel

The best home for our holiday in Capetown. Friendly staff and cleverly themed rooms, my favorite is the Bob Marley suite. Absolutely lovely view of Lions head. Makes for breath taking sunsets perfect for sharing a beer with some mates.

Good location to get around but dodgy area outside. They have new and old rooms. Rooftop was super chill and well priced bar, cheaper than anywhere else. Dinners were good and well priced. The chef always hooked it up! Breakfast included is average but it's there. Facilities were nice. Staff was cool and friendly, helpful.
