Gut geführte Herberge. Entgegenkommendes und hilfsbereites Personal z.B. es wurde mir problemlos und kostenlos erlaubt mit dem Auto im, mit einem Zaun geschützten, Bereich der Herberge während meines Aufenthaltes zu parken. Ich war dort sehr zufrieden!

You cannot beat the location of this hostel with plenty of room around to park a small car.

Great location, within 15 min walking or 5 min uber to V&A waterfront, safe, Woolworth grocery store within less than 5 minutes. Did not cook but kitchen had basic utensils. Good filling free breakfast (yogurt with fruit, eggs, muffin, bread with spreads), although the same every day. Friendly staff. Lively beer pong games til 10:30 every night (a plus or minus depending on your travel type...!) but female dorm on 2nd floor was pretty quiet. Highly recommend.

Everything was good and Mike and other staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is superb - walk to V&A Waterfront, Aquarium, shopping, restaurants, and City Sightseeing Buses.

USB socket, for your smart phone or computer, fixed on the wall next to your bed is the best designed for guest's convenience. Staff are friendly. Linen is clean and set tidy for you.
