Mix between a real hostel for backpackers and mid-range couples rooms at the end. We had a room in the other building at the end, which was perfectly fine for the money you pay. Good beds, nice shower, but especially the location is perfect. Walking distance during the day to the Waterfront, a supermarket around the corner plus several good...

We were only in Cape Town one night but having visited several times before this is the best place I've stayed. Great location about 10mins walk from the V&A Waterfront (safe to walk during the day but worth using a taxi or Uber after dark). Very secure with codes to get into each room as well as the external gate...

The staff was friendly and always helpful with all our questions about the things we wanted to do. It was a big plus that we could park our car inside the borders of the private terrain. We recommend backpackers as the location is great! It's only a walking distance from V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town stadium. It's a 30...

LOCATION: The backpacker was less than a 10 minute walk to the V&A waterfront. I even walked downtown one morning and it was less. There were several restaurants (Thai, Indian, burger joint and more), laundry (Coin Op Laundrette) and grocery (Woolworth) store all just minutes away on the main road. FOOD: The breakfast was very basic but filled me up....
