Well situated, cleaned, affordable, Rhonette and Mickey are always available. I would recommend this accomodation.

Overall - all good, Great location and very friendly people! But there are some problems with the cleanliness of the bed linen and more some moments with the repair.

The room was in the basement so there is a steep staircase. If you have a large suitcase, might have a hard time getting in. Otherwise, the location is great. There is parking on the street and the guests each have a cupboard and designated space in the fridge. Good value for $ in this area of town. Green Point is quiet and a nice residential area.

We had a nice stay in Cape Town in the basement room. Positive points: Rhonette is very kind and helped us every time we needed, providing us information about the city etc. Her house location is the best part, and this charming neighborhood is very safe, good to walk around, we parked our car on the street with no problems. Negative points: the room is quit dark, the bathroom walls don't reach the ceiling. You can listen to other guests talking from upstairs. The stairs can be a big concern for those who have locomotion problems (the steps are narrow). The shower dindn't work well (water was not getting hot). Although these negative points, we consider that is a big deal staying in this room, cause you pay almost the same for a bed in a bad unsafe shared dorm in a hostel on Long Street. Besides that, Cape Town has many attractions and too much to see and do (you surely want to spend the time ou doors..) so, for those who are tevelling in a budget, it's an excellent option to stay, I highly recommend!

Very nice location, and downtown is a pleasant walk to see Cape Town. WiFi is excellent. On reflection I think this room is more suitable for a young crowd, as it has a hostel feel to it. The steep stairs were a challenge for me, but I'm old! Also it is a basement so don't expect a bright sunny space. I did enjoy my stay though, so recommend if you want a cheap room in a central location.

I like meeting and hosting people from all over the world and showing Cape Town to them If I am available. I am not at home always , but have a Key Box, so you can arrive anytime that suits you I am trained as a journalist, but now take on various freelance media-related projects. I love travelling to different places, especially off-the-beaten track destinations. South Africa and its natural beauty and friendly people is still one of my favourite destinations.
I have a shared house in Green Point where people of all ages from all over the world and South Africa come together for short or medium stays. I also have a house in Hermanus, where I have a Seperate Entrance Private Room availableMy sister, Belinda and her husband Rudolph, hosts you in Hermanus and will hand you, your keys and help you with local info should you need it. Pick your room!
