“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 28 March 2008

My partner and I stayed in a small flat, seperate from the hostel. It had a fantastic view of Table Mountain. It was a great little place and we had everything we could want. We shared a bathroom with anther couple n the flat next door but never had any problems.
The staff are incredibly friendly and in the evening we were given a few free shots at the bar as the barman was surprised there were still some drinks we had not tried!
We were within walking distance of the Gardens Shopping Centre. There was also a 4-day festival in Long Street going on while we were there so we enjoyed that for a few nights. Again it was within walking distance of the accomodation, there were singers, fashion shows, fire eaters etc.
You can book some great day trips from the reception and we chose to go on a Cape Peninsula Tour which was fab. We went to Houts Bay, Simons Town and Boulders Beach (saw all the African Penguins on the beach). We drove up to Cape Point and then rode Mountain Bikes through the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve to Bordjlesrif for lunch. We then had a hiketo the Cape of Good Hope. It was stunning scenery.
