Big, well-run, clean, nearly all the little details thought of
Noise from the bar is closed off at night and common areas are cleared of people by midnight, so although there's a great social scene, it's easy to get a decent night's sleep. Lockers under the beds for big bags and personal safes on the walls of the dorms for small items. WiFi is good and exists throughout the property. Only things lacking: not enough electrical outlets, could use a hook or two on the back of all bathroom doors. It's expensive but the combination of a good social scene & a good night's sleep is rare.

Great place -- staff can be a bit slow!
Beautiful house and fantastic location. Great pool and well equipped kitchen. Centre of town a short walk. Agree that it can be loud. Bar is banging until around 10:30/11. But hey, this is a backpackers! Although did find night guard ticking people off after midnight for making noise around the pool area so they are aware of keeping the peace. Few issues with room bookings and reception can be slow. Make sure you get receipts for anything you pay for as did have an issue with deposit put down on a room and ended up paying twice. But now you know what to expect, get down their and enjoy it! Don't forget to use the upstairs toilet at the back of the house for the best view of Table Mountain (you'll see what I mean when you get there!).

Good way to start your trip
Superb facilities (phone card, kitchen, internet, travel information). Not far from the city centre (fifteen minutes walking) and clean room even if not very big. The only problem we had was the noise during the party at the restaurant the fist night (when you have just arrived from fourteen hours traveling is not what you desire most). Apart from that everything was great. I would definitely recommend it.

Brilliant! Good fun place to meet people
I stayed here for four nights recently and had an amazing time. It was our first stop and the fact that the hostel is so secure was a major plus for anyone who may be concerned. They have a travel desk within the hostel who are most helpful with whatever you may need planned. There is a great bar in this hostel with pool tables and a view of table mountain.

  This hostel is always busy and has a good friendly atmosphere. Great place to meet people. We camped here and the camping area is very small sandpit with room for only six small tents and the hostel will not allow you to reserve a place in advance. The lively bar is just above the camping area so it's too noisy to sleep early, but the music usually stops around 2 a.m. The bathrooms are good and there are four showers. The kitchen is big and well equipped and the pool area and garden are lovely. And you can't beat the nice quiet location of this hostel with its excellent view of Table Mt from the bar, a supermarket, and choice of take-aways and restaurants just round the corner, and it's only a fifteen-minute walk through the beautiful traffic free gardens to the city centre.

  Great Staff! Friendly people! Clean bathrooms! Clean bedrooms! Great pool and front yard with two hammocks for late-afternoon laziness time! Fantastic bar! Well placed in town -- walking distance to Long Street and taxis everywhere aren't expensive! Had loads of fun there and will come back in the future!
