I loved the Sunflower Stop - the location superb. Staff very helpful and guests all very friendly. Not too big and my single room, although without private facilities very close to bathrooms - perfect. Large, clean kitchen and outdoor round the pool seating, lounging.

The stay was very pleasant. The location is great because it is close to a Spar and to V&A Waterfront which is a beautiful walk. The only thing I can say is no one really washed dishes so most of the time when we arrived and needed a spoon or something they were dirty.

Excellent location, great hostel atmosphere, good swiming pool. Saturdays braai joins and aproximates guests. Excellent shower pressure and temperature, but the short courtain makes the bathroom all flooded everyday after the shower.

A sunflower stop is a great hostel. The staff was really nice and helped me with all my questions. You can walk to the Waterfront, Sea Point etc. And there´s a bus stop in front of the hostel. Everything is clean.

I would definitely recommend staying here. It's a lovely walk to the waterfront (you can go through the park - great for running!) The staff are really helpful and laid back. The bar area is where you'll meet people and the atmosphere is very welcoming. One of the nice things is that you'll meet people who return there frequently for...

The hostel was okay but not the best. The rooms have a bed, a safe a tiny dirty mirrior and thats it. It's hot inside because the fan doesnt really work. It is just super loud. You not feel really safe because of the old doors. The locks are easy to set out. The showers and toilets are very clean....

This hostel has a great location, really safe, well connected and really close to the waterfront. It`s really clean and beds are comfortable. There's kitchen but no restaurant, so you have to go out if you don't want to cook.

Rooms are clean and the place is fine but they don't have breakfast neither food at all and WiFi is not the best, also the cleaning staff sometimes was not nice at all so I think location is the best thing about it.

Thanks for your review. We do try make it clear we do not serve food and we are surround by great little eating spots and plenty of free food delivery companies. Our WiFi is something we are working on and look forward to our much anticipated fiber to be installed.
