Kitesurfing base
Perfect place to stay if in Cape Town for kitesurfing. Walking distance to the beach, close proximity to Tableview beach and Big Bay. Plenty of other kitesurfers staying there to kite with and lend advice.

Anna

Best stay in Cape Town
Had an amazing stay here. They renovated a lot and everything is super clean at any time.
Haven’t had such a great community elsewhere no matter if you’re a surfer or not.
Already reserved my room for the next season.

Super nice hostel owner, beautiful house, comfortable beds, clean pool, great relaxed atmosphere (barbecued with all the guests and generally had a good time!). Great hostel lodge, for people who want a little more peace and comfort, but still want a hostel atmosphere.
