I had a wonderful 5 night stay at Nine Flowers and would definitely return.
General area: I never felt unsafe and I was travelling alone. That being said, I was often approached and asked for money, but never felt threatened. I also didn't take any silly risks.
Breakfast was lovely, especially the daily specials.
FABULOUS location - several restaurants nearby, little convenience store, short walk to Long Street, near both Stop 7 & 8 for the Hop on, Hop off bus, next to Company Gardens
Plug adapter in the room - this was really welcome as South Africa has their own older style of plug (some newer outlets in S.A. have the two prong European style)
Township tour with Laura and the fact that she and her school are supported by Nine Flowers.
I had planned most of my excursions myself so didn't require much advice from my hosts, but my one small complaint was that when I did ask about the end time for a specific activity at Table Mountain, the answer was guessed and not confirmed with the operator by phone. As a result, and it was my last day to be able to do it, I arrived too late and missed my chance. I was quite disappointed, but I guess it just means that I get to try it on my next visit (and I'll be sure to confirm the timing myself). :)
I would highly recommend Nine Flowers.
