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

                                      05 January 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.

                                      11 August 2012

                                      We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be back. Thanks for everything Forty8!
