internet is very slow en didn't work at the room. The heater was broken and is was very cold . So you can' t relax . Very noisy at night . People are talking at several places .
very nice and easy tov each , good base .
The hostel's location is great and it's very convenient to stay at. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the general atmosphere is amazing
Well , that we could not have stayed longer.
A real mix of ages and backgrounds of guests. The staff were so helpful and sorted out everything we wanted. This is a seriously good choice for the traveller.
Everything and meeting other like minded backpackers even though we were probably the oldest there
Good lodging in economical setting. While it is a backpackers' hostel, the family studio room is spacious with it's own bathroom. Quite nice!
I would like to see a more secure lock on the room doors. And a lock that allows you to exit without a key in case of fire, and some safe boxes were inoperative and and some were tricky to use so you had to really check to make sure they locked properly.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool area and back yard and the other indoor/outdoor shared areas were also very comfortable. I will stay here again. I really liked it a lot! I really have no complaints.
the room was too expensive for what it was
the garden with the pool at the back
this place has a wonderful atmosphere - everyone's friendly and very supportive whenever you have questions about where to go, what to do, helpful with bookings and recommendations - they also provide safety-informations. it's a colorful and lively place and when sitting in the outdoors community area you have a wonderful view at table mountain!
Super comfortable room, great staff.
The staff are very friendly and professional in carrying out their duties.
the view !
TV in communal area not working, food left behind by backpackers had attracted flies but none of the cleaners noticed.
Very friendly staff, comfortable beds
Very modern, friendly
The wifi was poor and the room was too cramped
I was lat here10 years ago whn i was travelling and it's still a really friendly, comfortable and great place to stay. All staff happy and helpful and even though it's grown since i was last here it is still a great place that hasn't lost it's charm.
Staff are great and very helpfull. 60R taxi to the waterfront but only a 2 minute walk to long street!
The appartement has a different location than the backpack. It's near the Company gardens, the view is superb. You have to pay for wifi, at the Backpack you can internet for free so that's a good option. Great swimmingpool in the complex and your own private secured parking spot. Thanx Toni
On my last day they never cleaned my room and told me they would clean it the next day,my day of departure!
It was a lovely place for a hostel. lots of smiling faces. my expectations were very low but it was a very nice experience. we had the room with the toilet. I would recommend to get that room.
Lacked atmosphere Too expensive Staff didn't seem interested Ants in room
Good location New facilities
Carpets are outdated and always feel dirty. Suggest to replace with parquet. Shower was bad, kept going cold.
We stayed in the appartments overlooking the company gardens. Awesome views, and good central location close to long and kloof strts. Good bed and appt nice and big.
The Backpack is beautiful and the staff are lovely. The views of the mountain are amazing and you're close to everything it seems if you stay here. It's near Camps Bay, the mountain, Lion's Head etc. I traveled with a friend and we loved everything about The Backpack. The wifi was also excellent, which was nice on Christmas when we all wanted to Skype our families.
