"Great Cape Town Accomodation near Long Street" The Backpack Tip by FezePhoto

The Backpack, Cape Town: 608 reviews and 7 photos

I stayed over Christmas and was impressed by the quality of the dorm rooms, single beds, lots of space and very clean. One of the best backpackers I have stayed in for the quality of the rooms. The hostel had a very friendly atmosphere and the staff were excellent at organising activities for you. One word of warning though, if you are on your own be careful walking from the hostel to long street at night. We were approached even though we were a group of 4 guys.

Unique Qualities: They have nice pool, a great bar with pool table and sky tv for all the sports.

Address: 74 New Church Street, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: They arrange lifts from the airport which are great value.
