Description - Hostel

Situated in the heart of the bohemian and vibey Cape Town suburb of Observatory with its wealth of bars and restaurants. Located on the first floor with balconies overlooking the centre of the action.

All rooms are en suite and are cleaned daily and there is a lounge with TV and DVD as well as separate dining area. the kitchen is fully equipped including washing machine, stove, microwave and crockery.

We offer a safe, secure and comfortable stay in this self catering Hostel only a 10 minute drive from the foot of table mountain or the beaches of Camps bay and Clifton. The waterfront is also a short distance away for the discerning shopper. A Catamaran can be taken to Robben Island from the harbour.

If you are wanting to explore the western cape from a base then the hostel is ideal as Observatory is served by all main transport links. A 5 minute train ride with take you to Cape Town central Station.

Observatory is located on the outskirts of the city centre and provides a village feel in this predominantly victorian suburb. The village is personified by the yearly "obs fest" which is a celebration of everything observatory and is one of the largest street parties in South Africa. It is an eclectic mix of arts, races and cultures expressed through music and food.
