Hotel description
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.
