3 Reviews on Forty8 Backpackers Hotel

Staff is very friendly, I had my privacy. Rooms could just be a bit more clean. But all in all very fun environment.


13 February 2013

Spent 3 nights there, will probably rate is 1 of the best and cleanest backpackers I've stayed at in cape town . Great staff! Only problem is that the kitchen sometimes gets a bit cramped. Will definitely go back.
