I recently relocated to Cape Town and stumbled across Cape Town Deco Lodge. At first when I stopped in front of the place I was not expecting what I found once the gates opened. Rather than find a very average building with very average amenities, I was surprised to find a peaceful oasis with lush trees, beautiful garden and inviting...

Such a optimistic, peaceful and sociable lodge close to Cape Town's city centre. Every single member of the staff was so helpful, warm and friendly, even the funny dog, Bella. Stayed there around three months, making friends, discovering Cape and finding myself. Definitively, I reccommend it for everybody who likes freedom, outdoor activities, meets new people and, of course, believes...

We stayed here on our holiday to Cape Town and really enjoyed it. Very relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, cute dogs and cats, very comfortable beds and close by to shops, restaurants and My Citi bus stops! They have a full on kitchen, swimming pool and a pool table to keep you busy when you aren't exploring.

We booked online. Husband is allergic to cats. They have 2 indoor cats and 2 dogs. They are allowed in furniture so we were limited to the kitchen and bedroom for the most part.  No where did they say they had pets before booking. We did laundry there and it came back damp. They said their dryer broke so they...

We came to DecoLodge due to an booking mistake of another backpackers who transferred us to this nice backpackers. Staff is exceptionally friendly and they bond with you in a relaxed way by asking you to have a drink with them. Rooms get serviced, what is high standard at a backpackers. Our room was spotlessly clean, with fresh, crispy linnen....

I used to stay in the hotel for my annual medical conference, until I discovered this place near by a few years ago. Now I stay over whenever I trek 'over the mountain' to Cape Town, just because I like being there. Great place to stay at a fraction of a hotel's price and no hotel can beat this place's...

Deco Lodge Backpackers is an unexpected hidden oasis in the city. The guests are a mixture of tourists and longer stay workers. The accommodation is comfortable, the small but adequate kitchen has a delightful whistling kettle, there is a large communal area opening onto decking, a swimming pool, a hammock slung between trees and secure parking. Everything is scrupulously clean...
