Our hostel was so fantastic and I could honestly dedicate a whole blog
to why I loved it so much as well. My friends and I rented a room
to ourselves and we had a perfect view of table mountain. It was quiet in the
room, but lively downstairs with a coffee shop that turned into a bar below. It
was always packed with locals and backpackers a like which made it a really
great place to meet people. The location was prime...we walked all the time. It
was within walking distance of Long Street (the street that has all the bars,
shops and restaurants) and of the city center...wherever you need
really. And when we did need a taxi, the staff was happy to help.The staff was
so so fantastic. To letting us use the showers and holding our luggage before
we checked in and after we checked out...to taking us to a great bar our first
night. They helped us arrange a paragliding trip, surfing, places to eat...they
knew our names, talked to us about our day, just truly wonderful people that
always had a smile on their face.

The …
Today we were doing one of our must do things in South Africa, this is the Robben Island tour. The tour has it's own building on the docks, called the Nelson Mandela gateway, which we arrived 45 mins early feeling pretty smug. But when we got there the queue was already snaking through the building and up two flights of stairs.
