About Simonstown Boutique Backpackers

Simonstown Boutique Backpackers is situated along the main road in Simonstown and is based in the Historical Prince Alfred Building Est. 1802. Simonstown is a charming naval town named after the governor of the Cape Colony, Simon van der Stel, upon whose recommendation the Bay was used by the Dutch East India Trading Company for winter anchorage.

The backpackers offers a number of different room types to accommodate your specific needs. Come spend some time on our huge sea-facing-people-spotting-action-watching balcony - a great spot from which to soak up the view whilst knocking back a beer or two.

Simonstown is a good deal quieter than Cape Town itself, so if you’re all partied out or just want to relax in peace and tranquility, then it’s a great base for your holiday. We have no parking hassles and no crime problems and the centre of Cape Town is only 45 minutes away by car or just over an hour by train. You can reach all the great sites of Cape Town easily and the beauty of Cape Point at the Cape of Good Hope, the Cape Peninsula and the famous Penguins of Boulder’s Beach is right on our doorstep.

We’re conveniently located in the heart of Simonstown and just a 10-minute walk from the railway station. We can also arrange airport transfers, bicycle rental, Cape Point, Overland, Wine, and Garden Route tours, shark diving tours, boat trips, and car hire.

I would not recommend it.We booked a double room en suite for 520 Zar/night and it was not worth it.We had twin beds instead of the double we agreed on.They were no towels in the bathroom and since we saw that after reception business hours we add to ask for them on the next morning.Bed linens were not ironed.Only end of toilet paper roll and nobody to ask for it in the evening.The only good point is the location.So I'll definitely not recommend it and don't understand the positive comments on the website.

A hike up Elsie's Peak is well worth the short, sharp effort for the breathtaking and expansive views of False Bay - a wonderful way to get your bearings. The flora in October is stunning and you may be lucky enough to see a whale or two. Extend...

Take the footpath at the end of Barnard Street and proceed up the gentle slope. Once you round a sharp bend, you’ll be struck by the view of the deep ravine. The Admiral's Waterfall and pool is tucked away at the top. Plan to picnic here and spend...
