              We had a nice stay last weekend at the Bohemian Loft Backpackers. The bedroom is clean and nice.However I think that at the rate of R470 per night for a double room, the management should make an effort on the bathroom. It wasn't painted, the taps are so difficult to close that I couldn't manage myself (not great for a place that claims to be eco-friendly! And at this price I was expecting more than an old plastic bathtub to shower!Apart from the bathroom, we enjoyed our stay and the staff was friendly.

              We found the backpackers easy to find. Friendly staff and cat and great accomodation. It has a real friendly-family feel with people coming and going all the time. Security is fantastic and we felt at ease leaving our bags in the room and enjoying the neighbourhood.
