Backpackers District Six -within the historical Castle Hotel Building - is situated in the rapidly developing new East City precinct of Cape Town.
Two minutes walk to the District Six Museum, 5 minutes walk to The Cape town Castle . Both the Assembly and Retro's Night Clubs are within 1 minutes stroll from the lodge
Due to the Function venue below the rooms the hostel can be very noisy
With the Cape Town University of Technology up the Road the area is a buzz with students who will show you to the nearby Student haunts such as Mercury lounge (live music venue)and The Shack , which is a great meeting venue
For those more discerning visitors The Harley Davidson Club of Cape Town is a stones throw away
Within the Lodge we have a licensed pub serving meals and pool tables at R2.00 a game
Bring you hired car along as we have 7 free parking bays which in the middle of Cape Town is unheard off
