Score from 203 reviews Good
Almos everything was great. For a young person traveling alone it was perfect. Lots of interesting people to meet, good activities, and braai night was great.
Don't get a top bunk. Especially if you plan on coming in late. Haha. Would like the terrace and ping pong open later but understand the reasoning.
The wed braai was awesome.
Being the one girl in a 4bed dorm for some days felt a bit awkward at times.
Set up is awesome. Loved it and it was easy to access.
Room ventilation lacks a lot. Addition of air conditioning would help. Pedal fans do niks... Set up of bathroom not conducive for one to shower and get dressed.
everything I would recommend this lodge, it has everything you need as a traveller
it is not next to the beach but pretty closed
Very well situated close to the city center, V&A Waterfront, Sea Point promenade and on the way to Camps bay. Electronic access system at entrance and dorm rooms makes it very secure. One can easily leave stuff in his room or in the big lockers (bring your own lock!) Nice TV room, garden with a tiny pool, bar facilities... Comparatively good breakfast with toast, spread, fruits and scrambled eggs. I didn't do any tours but it seemed there are plenty of good tours offered by the backpackers and its partners so you don't have to worry about your program.
Ceiling fan in the dorm was kind of loud at night and could need a fix.
Sharing the bathroom was a horrible idea and the TV wasn't working and Noone knew how to fix it. Also it didn't say that the breakfast was very poor in the ad.
Very much liked te atmosphere combined with the people, the location and the staff to be honest. One of the better hostels i've stayed in especially considering the price.
Nothing really. Wifi could have been better but even this was not really a problem.
clean, good location
staff was amazing Clean good location
Power point in the locker Breakfast Atmosphere Beds - comfortable Very clean
Wifi doesn't work in female dorm
*Location. Excellent position and easy to walk to everything. Great to have Woolworths supermarket within short walking distance and also a great cafe called Shift. Given no pool, I did happen to find a pool at the nearby 5 star hotel that offered free swimming at their sky bar. *Great guy called Siphine who works as a taxi driver and hangs around the hostel for business. Very trust worthy and fun guy. Highlight of my stay commuting with him. *Two of the girls who worked at reception very lovely. I just forget their names. One an American and the other a local I think.
*Please don't advertise to have an outdoor pool when it's nothing more than a cloudy fish pond with a hose in it that takes up any space to even dip in. I was so disappointed as I booked this place based on a pool - being summer and the fact that after three long flights from Australia wanted to arrive somewhere and unwind in a pool. *The wifi was close to rubbish and very disappointing when trying to plan things and not get online. Luckily, nearby, found an excellent cafe called Shift Coffee that had fast/efficient wifi. Even the staff couldn't assist with some things because they had trouble getting online. *I thought, having put my name down on hostel board to go seal snorkelling it was booked. Told at one point I was and then at last minute not booked and too late as fully booked. The staff anyhow seemed to know little about the experience. What time pickup, for how long etc. I've booked myself for when passing through CT on way home.
i did like everything about the place I wish to visit the place again next year December
Friendly and helpful staff, good location near pubs, restaurants and shops, very safe place with car parking inside, breakfast small, but enough, internet working properly
little bit noisy
Staff very helpful, price affordable, I like the location, lots of activity options, comfortable rooms, well looked after
Good location, quiet, clean, nice staff, comfy beds, tiddy bathrooms, lots of events.
Internet is sometimes slow in the evening.
The kitchen staff are very rude!
The location, beds and wifi were my favourite
Nothing! It was my first time at a backpackers and I thought it would be dirty and loud. Instead the whole place was spotless and people were respectful
perfect location, super clean...nice staff highly recommend if are travelling alone...A lot of restaurants around the area super safe.
The location was great and seemed to be a safe area. There are many restaurants within a few minute walk and the waterfront is less than 10 min walk away. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable when advising on the best places to visit.
Staff is good, very friendly. Good Breakfast. Good Bar & open balcony to rest. Play room with Pool & TT (Ping pong ball)
Dorm Rooms - Not much spacious. Mosquitos. I have been bite by mosquito one night. Milk served with breakfast is not good sometime, but you can ask for another.
I love the enviroment, the friendliness, the common areas were great, the services in general were really good (kitchen, living room, terrace, bar) and my room was nice (dorm), the staff is so friendly and helpful
getting up to my bed wasn´t so comfortable, you had to be agile... there was no soap to wash your hands
The staff was very nice and helpful. A phone was available with a direct line to the taxi service company which was very convenient. The room was comfy and clean with a nice bathroom. We only stayed for one night and didn't have time to enjoy the bar area but it definitely looked like a lot of fun. We discovered a very nice burger restaurant just down the road (the Hudson's), we could walk back to the backpackers safely from there. We highly recommend this backpackers.
Male and Female live in the same room
I liked the general atmosphere of AP. The cordiality and friendliness of the staff impressed me although there was some hiccups while they were dealing with my reservation.Never worry guys, I will come back to stay again.
I didn't get reply to some of my mails.
A jalous lady woke up several times during the night the whole hostel by knocking heavily on her and other room doors and shouted loudly on her partner. Nobody of the staff came to calm the situation.
