Within walking distance of the city centre and close to Cape Town's magnificent beaches, we cater for all accommodation needs from camping and backpacker dorms to private, en-suite rooms in our guesthouse around the corner.

So in our restored Victorian mansion as well as clean, comfortable rooms you'll also find a number of handy innovations like individual reading lights, personal safes and international plug points.

Chill out next to our sparkling pool, in our landscaped Gardens or on any of our spacious balconies and palm-fringed sundecks - or join the party in our legendary

Terrace on the foot of Table Mountain. Kumasi Bar with its cool cocktails and fabulous mountain views. Our giant TV shows all the major sporting events - or set up your own match over our pool table. You can also get delicious meals in our bar, or you can cater for yourself in our well-equipped communal kitchen.

We have 6 and 8 bed dorms. The dorms are mixed although we do have a couple of girlie dorms (which cost a little more). All dorms have specially designed wrought iron bunk beds that have lockers built into them for your added security. We now also offer individual reading lights, white fluffy duvets and don't forget about those individual digital safes!

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

The add on to have breakfast every morning for an extra small fee was a bargain.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful, they were not only nice but extremely knowledgeable about Cape Town.
Would stay again given the opportunity.


Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
