We stayed for one night in a dorm room which was fine. There was 1 shower for up to 7 people but there was only 4 of us there that night so it was fine. The shower was very good and the bathroom was large.
The bed was very comfortable with an expensive looking thick comfy mattress cover.
The staff were friendly and the common areas were fine although a bit small. There was a small kitchen area if you wanted to make something. Wi if was free and was alright.
Location was very good for bars and restaurants - right on the corner of lower main road in Observatory which also has a train station with trains going to the centre of town, Stellenbosch and Kalk Bay Area. The Old Biscuit Mill was about a 25-30 minute walk away. Taxi cost around 80-110R to the centre of town.
