Such a clean, friendly and nicely located spot! Definitely keen to head back to Never @ Home! The food is awesome. Group of ten of us and having a key card for each of us made life so easy for our stay. Air conditioning was a dream!

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review. Aircon in the Cape Town summer heat is an important feature for dormitory rooms.

Never@Home is perfectly located on the Main Road. It’s steps away from the local grocery store, KWIKSPAR, and right next door to multiple bars, restaurants and shops. It screams convenience. They have in-house travel desk next to reception with an agent ready to answer any questions you may have. I found this to be very helpful during my stay, especially...

Thank you for taking the time to review and give us feedback. We have been running at 100% occupancy for the last week. Due to this our staff would need to extend guests based on no show reservations which is possibly why they asked you to come back the next day. We do apologise for the inconvenience cause by the...

Never@Home is a nice modern hostel. Clean with decent dorm rooms. Wifi was pretty good and could be accessed from the dorm rooms which is important because I basically pulled an all-nighter watching the US election results (in disbelief). The hostel is across the street from the stadium, close to the V&A waterfront, and the Robben Island ferry. There's a...

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had some technical issues with your air-conditioning. They have been checked and both working properly now. Our private rooms without en-suite bathrooms are smaller than the private en-suite rooms however they great value for money for travellers not wanting dorm accommodation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the vibrant Green Point "strip", we are surrounded by trendy restaurants and bars, overlook the Cape Town Stadium and in walking distance of the famous V & A Waterfront, Cape Town CBD and the Seapoint Promenade. Easy access to public transport provides guests with rapid access to Long Street (South Africa's most famous party destination), Table Mountain (a new 7 wonder of the world) and some of the best beaches Cape Town has to offer. We provide a range of accommodation including shared dormitories and double/twin rooms for those looking for something a little more intimate. Separate sanctuary accommodation is also available for females only. The majority of our rooms are en-suite with additional communal bathrooms provided for extra convenience. Basics, necessities like lockers, bedding, heating and air conditioning are supplied in all rooms. Our reception is open 24 hours and safety and security is a key priority. The Randy Warthog, bar and restaurant overlooks the hostel waterhole (swimming pool and sundeck to those in the know). Randy hosts parties and events most days of the week, including traditional braai's (barbeque in South African language). A continental breakfast or a full cooked breakfast is available at the Randy for an inexpensive cost. Additional hostel facilities include a communal kitchen, inside and outside social areas, internet zone and bicycle hire for those with a little more energy. Fast wireless connectivity is available throughout property. Our travel desk guys just love Cape Town and can advise you on all the hot spots and best day trips! They can also advise you on what not to do. A hostel shuttle bus runs daily (for a surcharge) for in house guests, and safe car parking (on request) for those independent types. ... more   less
