Location and Contact


• When driving from the airport or coming from the Garden Route, just continue along the N2 towards Cape Town city centre. Please make sure you follow directions to Cape Town as many newcomers go in the wrong direction. Continue on the N2 for about 10 minutes and as you come up to the mountain keep right and continue towards the city - following the signs. Take the De Waal Drive turn-off to the left when the road forks and continue driving around the mountain. Just off De Waal Drive you need to take the Mill St turn-off. This will take you past a large shopping centre (Gardens Centre) on your left hand side and then you drive through two sets of traffic lights. The next road left (after the second set of lights at Upper Orange Street) is Hof Street. It is just before the Mount Nelson hotel, so if you see that you know you have gone too far. The lodge is two blocks up on the left hand side – a large yellow building.
• REMEMBER: If you arrive at the airport or bus station between 8.30am and 4pm they offer a free pick-up service (subject to availability). It is not a "meet-and-greet" service but all you have to do is call them at 021 423 8721 when you arrive and they will send a driver out to collect you. If you are arriving outside of those hours, then let them know your flight details and they will arrange for the Backpacker Bus to collect you (costs vary).
