This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We only stayed one night. Booking was easy and without any problems.
Our room was on the 3rd floor under the roof and very hot in the morning. The beds are okay, but the floor was old and trammeling and musty.
The shared bathroom was quite clean.
Unortunately the Wi-Fi did not reach to our storey.
Lofng Street is very luoud at night, but no problem if ou are REALLY tired.
There are very many bars, discos and restaurants around the backpacker.
The crew is frendly and easy going. But ask them for the free Wi-Fi password and the code for the door at night by yourself!
As we are no party people, we looked for a more quiet place to stay. But when you love to party, it`s a nice and save option to stay in the middle of cape town!
