Great views and close to restaurants and bars, taxi service is available and affordable. The rooms are clean and comfortable but the bathroom isn't the one on the website, the shower is almost useless but for the one night it was fine.Establishments Response:Thank you for your response, the bathroom picture on Safarinow does state that it’s a private room bathroom and not a dorm bathroom, I will take a look at the shower and did not realise it had a problem, we hope to see you again in the near future.

Our 2 night stay at Houtbay Backpackers was more than I expected. The rooms were clean  and we had everything we needed. I can recommend this establishment to anyone

The room we had was very nice and clean, and they even made a heart with rose petals for us, seeing as it was part of our honeymoon. Huge bathroom and comfortable bed. Not bad for a backpackers. Thank you for the stay.
