Description

Young vibrant staff, adventure-packed days, exciting nights, chilled-to-the-max braais and the comfiest beds also included. Centrally located in the legendary OBZ, the funky and vibey neighbourhood with some of Cape Town’s most adored live band venues, comedy clubs, restaurants, pubs and bars.

'Forget everything you once thought or believed about backpacking and join us on a new and unique journey in Cape Town'

33 South Boutique Backpackers was developed especially for those individuals who have a taste for a real adventure but are not willing to give up their piping hot showers and fresh percale linen.

Because Cape Town is such a great place, we decided to develop a Boutique Backpackers Lodge that is really special. Boutique? Boutique for us is everything stylish, unique and luxurious – and all this you’ll find in the homely atmosphere at 33 South Boutique Backpackers. Since we dedicated our name (33 South) to the geographic location of Cape Town (33 South, 18 East), it’s fitting that each of our rooms is themed after a different culturally rich “Capetonian” neighbourhood.

Whether you choose to spend the night in an extra-sized bed in District 6, the colourful Bo-kaap, Khayalitsha Shack chic or the cool and breezy Kalk bay room (amongst others) Cindy, Kim and the rest of the friendly staff will make sure you feel at home in this spacious Victorian house.

At the reception you’ll not only find a selection of tours, activities and great music, but also insider-info on the best restaurants, surf spots, music festivals and loads of “off-the-beaten-track” adventures.

Comfort, safety and security are top priority. To ensure this, each guest has their very own large locking cupboard with digital code safe, extra-sized bed with the softest fresh linen and the night-watchman Elvis will keep you safe and entertained.

See you soon!

05 February 2014

We had a great stay and enjoyed getting settled at the start of our trip to Cape Town at 33 South. The location was close enough to the main road restaurants and bars, but far enough down the street to feel safe and quiet. It was convenient to the train and also easy to park on the street. I'd recommend this place to my friends.

11 December 2013

I really enjoyed my stay. Thanks to the team who made my stay enjoyable. Will definitely be back.

07 February 2013

Clean and central accommodation in Obs for a family of 5. It was a great way for our girls to experience backpacking.

02 January 2013
