Great Fun
I've never stayed in a backpackers before, I always thought they were just cheap bunks, but I couldn't find a hotel and a friend recommended this place. I'm glad he did,I had an amazing time. I stayed in great double room, it was big clean and modern, it had a lrage double shower and even a balcony with a table mountain view. If I'd stayed in a hotel it would have been 3 times the price. And if I stayed in a hotel I wouldn't have met all the great people in the bar. Its not a gay place, just a place full of great people, some customers are gay some aren't, some staff are gay, some aren't. Staff where amazing and gave me so much advice about where to go and not to go, I ended up going out most nights with the staff and their freinds. The b-b-q food was incredable and always went to a good night in the bar. They serve breakfast until 2pm which was great after the night out, and have realy hi spead internet. Location wise it just off kloof street so there are loads of bars and cafes around, it's on the road to table mountain and the beaches at Clifton, about a 2 mintute cab ride from the "gay village". I feel a lot more comfortable now about traveling on my own and staying in backpackers. Thanks guys, I will be back!!!
