The Hostel


Our second floor rooms are classic budget hotel rooms with all the necessary amenities of a 3 star hotel in Cape Town: private bathroom, TV, safe and all linen

Our first floor comprises our Hostel or Backpackers in Cape Town, with shared rooms. This is note an average hostel : each bed is custom made (extra length) with high quality soft white hotel linen, a reading light and locking locker. Every shared room has a private bathroom. 

The Third floor houses our long term guests who are staying for longer than one month.

Restaurant & Bar

Our onsite restaurant offers guests a simple breakfast on the go and one of Cape Town’s finest coffees. For Lunch and dinner, our guests can grab a bite to eat at Yours Truly, Hudsons or Mitico – from Gourmet burgers to real italian pizzas, to hipster soul food – it’s all here on tap. And so is the craft beer – our in-house bar is open until 11:00 pm. Of course, we also have a self catering kitchen for cash-strapped globe-trotters to cook their own meals.

Social Responsibility

Our organisation supports Children’s Radio Foundation and Zip Zap Circus, by donating a portion of our profits to these organisations, which are involved in skills development of South African youth, through the medium of creative arts.

We also support Greenpop, an organisation that believes that greening and sustainable living can be fun, popular and accessible for all. Whilst many have coined the term “sustainability” to describe the way that businesses and individuals need to act now in order to preserve the future, Greenpop believes in inspiring a culture of “thrivability” – a more conscious and inclusive movement which embraces the energy and abundance that the earth can provide if it (and its people) are treated correctly.

    The work was fun, engaging and diverse, and never felt like a chore. The entertainment at the adjoined bar/ cafe was excellent and so was the access to computers and kitchen or braai areas. Ideas and opinions are always welcomed and so new and exciting events and activities are always occurring. I made so many great friends in my 10 weeks at the hotel and I will definitely be back again sometime soon. I can't recommend this enough. Thanks to the crew!

Part-time work in exchange for food and board.
