“The Backpack is like a little village”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on June 11, 2019

Coming back to The Backpack after I stayed in a residence of my course felt like coming home. The hostel is like a little village, the vibe is always amazing, even when there are not so much guests...

Hanging around in The Backpack has been more than great - the whole place felt like a home. The vibe is very easy-going & open, the hostel itself is vibrant & hip and the people are a true pleasure...



Directions

From Cape Town Airport (N2) at the Waterfront entrance you continue along Buitengracht Street (M62) towards Table Mountain. Where the road divides we are on that junction. Drive past us and go around the block and into our parking area. You can't miss it! Driving is the easiest way to reach us - ring if you need extra directions.
