When my daughter told me she'd booked me into a backpackers for 12 nights, I was a bit hesitant but boy, was I impressed when I arrived!! My private room was immaculate with crisp white linen on a very comfortable double bed and the en suite was spotless. The shower head could do with upgrading but that's the only negative I could find.
The communal kitchen/living areas are well appointed and the adjacent terrace has one of the best views in Muizenberg! Downstairs, the café serves tasty vegetarian snacks and great coffee. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the on-site manager even got up at 4.30 am to make sure I got off to the airport safely - thanks Henry!! Added extras include
free internet, a tour desk and 24 hour access through PIN coded security gates.
The location is first class - you're right next to the beach and you're spoiled for choice when it comes to cafes and restaurants! The railway station to Cape Town or further down the coast is right next door, the supermarket is 5 minutes walk and the bottle shop is only 2!! Stoked is practically perfect in every way and I would stay there again in a heart beat.
