    We got a room for 3 people in the nearby Lodge at Union Street and it was just great: quiet, spacious and lots of privacy.

    Beautiful building, very comfortable room with basin and nice bed. I really enjoyed being there.

    The people who worked at the bar - the woman looked harassed and the man looked busy with something else. The guy at reception explains to everybody you enter the code move# to open the gate "as in predictable text". No wonder everybody battles to get the gate to open.

    Good value for money and great location. Lovely bar and friendly staff and really comfy beds which helps after hiking up table mountain

    The staff is always friendly and helpfull (stayed there a few times before as well, so I am sure they are always helpfull and friendly). This lodge is situated close to the city centre, safe area for moving around easily. Public transport is always available just outside the gate. Great to go out for a night in town, walking distance. Should you prefer an evening at the lodge, Kumasi cafe on the top floor is great to chill or meet fellow travellers. The staff are up to date with helping to plan trips to suit any adventure, even outside Cape Town area. To sum it up, very safe, clean, friendly, good transport, great location.

    Best mix of realaxing and partying. Very friendly. Pleasant atmosphere. Travel-Center included with honest & fair recommendations.

    Its location. Can easily access town centre. The environment is neat. Generally good considering that most of the time large numbers come and go at the same time.

    The pegions which sleep on door steps.
