When I am in Cape Town, I always stay there. It is nice and calm place to stay - and it is always, always clean :) Guys in the reception are always friendly and helpful. The only thing that can bother somebody is that rooms with own bathroom have windows into the garden, where the bar is and for somebody...

Great quality for this price. Very friendly atmosphere created by young staff and other guests (probably the place attracts only the nice guys ;)). There is a small bar (they request you not to drink your own alcohol inside the facility), where you can warm up in winter windy evenings, it can get a bit chilly at night in the...

Rooms, showers, toilets are clean and okay. A nice new kitchen. But most of all, the people who are working in a sunflower stop are very relaxed. The atmosphere is great. There is a nice bar. And on saturday a good braai.

The hostel was very nice. The kitchen and lounge were always clean tidy and cosy! Sometimes no hot water and the wifi was very poor. Great location for the waterfront and beaches. Bus stop right outside for going in to the city. Supermarket 10 mins up the road. Nice bar and a BBQ every Friday night.

It's locate between waterfront and sea point. Probably around 20 minutes walk to waterfront, but it is close to supermarket and restaurants. The room is very spacious, the bed can be very shaky, but it's comfortable enough to sleep in. The facility is awesome, they have communal kitchen, and cute common area to relax and chill. Not a place to...

I enjoyed my couple of nights in the hostel with my wife, the hostel has good conditions, is very well localized and the staff is helpfully. However the music in the bar past midnight didn't helped much to have a relaxing sleep.
