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.

The shuttle service they provided from the ariport was awful. They told me they were to take a slight detour. The back of the van was extremely bumpy. We took a girl first to her university and an hour later we were back at the airport! They has gone in the opposite direction. Then they dropped off another girl and charged her less than what I was charged. The first room reeked of some cleaner that filled my sinuses. I was moved to another room which was good. I then booked another hotel and checked out, but they made me pay for the rest of my stay.
