A sunflower stop is a great hostel. The staff was really nice and helped me with all my questions. You can walk to the Waterfront, Sea Point etc. And there´s a bus stop in front of the hostel. Everything is clean.

I would definitely recommend staying here. It's a lovely walk to the waterfront (you can go through the park - great for running!) The staff are really helpful and laid back. The bar area is where you'll meet people and the atmosphere is very welcoming. One of the nice things is that you'll meet people who return there frequently for...

The hostel was okay but not the best. The rooms have a bed, a safe a tiny dirty mirrior and thats it. It's hot inside because the fan doesnt really work. It is just super loud. You not feel really safe because of the old doors. The locks are easy to set out. The showers and toilets are very clean....

This hostel has a great location, really safe, well connected and really close to the waterfront. It`s really clean and beds are comfortable. There's kitchen but no restaurant, so you have to go out if you don't want to cook.

Rooms are clean and the place is fine but they don't have breakfast neither food at all and WiFi is not the best, also the cleaning staff sometimes was not nice at all so I think location is the best thing about it.

Shuttleservice on arrival is safe and conveniënt. Great and helpfull, friendly reception on morningshift! Best pillow during my stay in South Afrika. Dormitory open, not a lot of privacy. Though nice seats to do your email around the pool or on the bar.

The staff were very helpful when we had a seasonal bug issue, which was resolved very quickly. The facilities were really nice and clean. I could only fault the size of our room, which was really cramped for 2 people. The fan was also offset from the bed, which resulted in us getting quite hot in the night.

I stayed in Sunflower Backpackers just for one night. The structure of the hostel is good, especially the kitchen. The staff was helpful and polite all the time. Besides its location is very good. There's a market and some restaurants in a walking distance.

The kitchen is big and with plenty of space for cooking, as well as the fridge. The bathrooms were clean and with hot water. The people was very nice with us! The location is quite good! For a short time there we found nothing bad to complain... only some noise over night on the corridor and other areas... besides that...
