TravelPod Member ReviewsBrenwin Guest House Cape Town
What a fantastic guesthouse! We slept in the best best ever, you never want to get out! But you also don't want to miss the delicious breakfast! The ladies were great and we got great advise and help from Pam and her husband (the owners).
We stayed here for 4 nights, sad to leave but we will come back in Capetown!

I have grown in my time away My mind has been boggled My soul experienced extreme moments of sheer fun and laughter and Joy But it also groaned under sheer weight - As I saw the depths of devastation at what mankind has done throughout history; The tyranny, the pain ...
... was a little bit annoying. There were two drivers taking turns quite often so we felt very safe.
We arrived in Cape Town at about 15.00 and took an expensive taxi to our hostel. Our hostel was called "Once in Cape Town". It turned out to be a very nice place with a very cool staff (mostly foreigners / volunteers). Because of the high season (New Year´s coming) it was a bit expensive (originally USD 19 per person and per night but finally we paid USD 16) so we had ...
