Yes, I highly recommend staying at "The Backpack" You will get your monies worth - good vibes, friendly backpackers, safe and most of all fun place to stay. Also, everything is centrally located - long street, only 5 min walk. Secure car parking is available as well. Book and stay here, you won't regret it! My bed view was Table Mountain...

Une petite surprise désagréable à l'arrivée de 200 euros supplémentaires par rapport au prix annoncé. Erreur réparée quand je suis revenu contester. Sinon rien à redire à cette auberge très bien organisée avec un personnel très agréable.

Sehr schöner Ausblick aus dem Familienzimmer auf den Tafelberg! Für Familien gut geeignet.
