This is a stylish backpackers set in a beautiful old Victorian house in the City Bowl, close to the trendy restaurants, bars and cafes of Kloof Street. There are 6, 7 and 10-sleeper dormitory rooms on the ground floor, which are pretty standard. Upstairs, the double rooms have shiny en-suite bathrooms and crisp white towels and linen, and some open up onto small balconies with a table and chairs. The bar area has a lovely atmosphere with its wooden floors and warm red wall, (check out the ever-changing cocktail specials) and the breakfast room/lounge, with fireplace, is a nice communal space. For those with culinary flair the spacious kitchen, which has been lovingly restored with pretty white and aquamarine tiles, will inspire you to even greater taste delights. With wi-fi throughout the building and computers for guests’ use, this is pretty smart backpacker style.

Housed in an old villa, in the heart of Tamboerskloof (one of Cape Town’s most central suburbs, situated close to Table Mountain) this hostel is a good choice for travelers who want to keep a close eye on their budget without depriving themselves of a good experience. You can either book a bed in one of their dorms, or a private room. You are provided with linen, duvets, pillows and towels - so leave those yours in your bag. One of the best things at Cape Town Backpackers is the fact that their Wifi connection is free. When it comes to dinner and lunch: you can either make your own in the fully equipped kitchen, or you can explore one of the many cafes and restaurants in the area.
Cape Town Backpackers has a guesthouse too (around the corner), for those who want more peace and quiet whilst being on holiday.
