    It was a very good experience with a diverse of cultural groups living in it. It is as well near to shops and restaurants. It was great being with friendly people and would advice those that will travel to go.

    I stayed in the dorm for a couple of days and enjoyed myself thoroughly. Observatory is great, really vibrant compared to most other Cape Town suburbs. African Heart made a great base of operations, and the staffed were very chilled and helpful.
