We IMMEDIATELY felt at home.... the interior is just sooo nice, with an area to hang out and a very cozy bar. Close to table mountain, lions head, long street,... the whole shabam. And more importantly, very close to RAFIKI'S, UNDISPUTED the best bar in Cape Town. REALLY TRUST ME ON THIS ONE! Just nice people who like to party, and great food is served. None of the dodgy long street vibes and sometimes dito crap food. The backpackers is also close to the better restaurants. If they still have them, ask for the free bottle of wine coupon to the restaurant where you can eat braaied crocodile, warthog, ostrich,... you dont even have to choose which, because they serve a mixed grill thats pure food porn!!! Best poitjie is at mama afrikas on long street, make sure to make reservations. Nice boboti on top of table mountain. Climb it so you earned it!
The CT backpackers also have a sweet deal with one of the big hotels around the corner, the backpackers visitors can use their swimming pool, just dont be a cheap charly and buy a beer or a soda when you go there! I swear, leaving that place hurts like HELL. Thanks to everybody at the backpackers for doing what they do!!!
