Good value centrally based place to stay. Not at the backpack but short walk and best if both worlds self catering but quieter than hostel. Great breakfast.

Great Place
Fantastic staff who are cheery and helpful. Great place to stay with fab breakfast and good ethos re supporting community initiatives. Easy to drive to, not too far from myciti bus stop. Only down side is, like much of Cape Town and other cities you need to take cab or car at night to go anywhere due to safety concerns. Not something can be changed. The standard for a hostel is very high.
