      I orginially booked this place for a couple of nights and then decided o stay for another. Here are the reasons why:

      1) Great location, easy to get to from the city centre (15 minutes on the train which is really cheap especially if you buy a weekly ticket);
      2) Great mix of people both staff and residents, both long term and short term;
      3) Great facilities (especially the kitchen and the showers);
      4) Quiet (as in no noise from the street. This is difficult to find right inthe city centre;
      5) Price: Well I think that speaks for itself;

      I would go back there in a flash having been to other bakcpacckers in the city centre. Great staff, great facilites. Well run.

      ... late for with the friends they had made the night before on Table Mountain. We dropped the girls off at their actual hotel with promises to let Jerry know if they went out- though no one thought it was likely given how tired we all were! Jerry and I cleaned up and walked down the main bar/restaurant street in Capetown. We found this cute restaurant that had a sort of southern kitchen feel to it- they made us feel right at home! Great end to a great ...
