Lonely Planet review

Not exactly boutique but certainly imaginative, this cosy backpackers in a Victorian cottage has sought inspiration from different Cape Town suburbs as themes for its rooms. There’s a delightful shared kitchen and a pretty courtyard. Staff conduct free tours of Observatory. Rates don’t include breakfast.

Our independent authors have visited 33 South Boutique Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in East City Corridor.
