- “ all days were nobody at the reception and no chance to phone someone there were stolen many things from many hostel guests our room was locked one day and nobody was there who had our key so we could not go to sleep and had to wait for 5 hours until someone came... one of the worst hostels we have ever been on our worldtrip !! ”

- “ The hostel is quite alright for a short stay in downtown Cape Town, but not much more than that. The bathrooms weren't exactly what you can call clean, neither was our room. The staff wasn't all that helpful. When we asked for the advertised airport pickup we were told that the manager wasn't around and we'd have to get there ourselves. We were told to go by expensive taxis, even though it turns out that the cheap MyCiti-buses go right by the hostel. An OK hostel, but nothing more. ”
