visited capetown originally for a couple of days prior to traveling up the coast to joburg, ended up staying for nearly four weeks. its a place i'd love to call home -- overlooking the big mountain, right by long street. you just cant go wrong --
what a place! set the standard for the rest of the trip, the staff are great, food is wicked and the beer at 70 pence a go -- priceless. had a really good time, made at home by the best group of staff and other travelers. at the centre of everything in capetown. reccomend anyone going to south africa to firstly go to cape town and secondly make sure you're booked into the backpack.
