I've just left this backpackers after staying 4 nights in a private double room. This place is great- wifi fast and worked well in our room, safe and secure, good chilled atmosphere, newly decorated and very clean, and the best thing is that it was only R400 to stay in our double room, which was half the price of some backpackers in CT. If you are staying at Obs I would say that it's better to have a car. Obs restaurants and shops etc are walkable, as is fashionable Woodstock just down the road (go to The Old Buiscuit Mill market on Sat morning, amazing place!) BUT to get in the 'centre' of the city is a 45 min walk (10 min drive) so better to have a car or prepare to take taxis. We stayed in 3 hostels in CT (Big Blue, B.I.G, an Obs) and would without a doubt return here above the others. Great stay.
