    As an HI employee, I always am excited to stay in other Hostelling International hostels. And thankfully, 33 South did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly, the vibe was hip and local, and everything was a great value. I definitely met a number of people and could not have been more happy with the experience.

In the afternoon Nan went to Robben Island and then Deb, Han and myself joined another 2 couples for the Cape ...

    ... We were hoping to be able to do some hands on activity, but that wasn't an option. We thanked her for helping us and headed back to the bus. The Manenberg Primary School was having a celebratory assembly and they invited us! Children were everywhereeeee! We first attended an board discussion and I have no idea why.
