Backpackers Guide to Cape Town
Finding a Backpacker's Hostel
Cape Town is a wonderful city for backpackers and budget travellers to explore and enjoy. There are loads of beautiful beaches to choose from, a whole range of thrilling adventure sports and an active nightlife.

Backpackers are numerous and found throughout the city. There are hostels/ backpackers to suit all styles. Some are large and quite formal, like Ashanti, some have travel centres like Zebra Crossing, others suit an older crowd, some like Sunflower Stop in Greenpoint are vibey party-places. For longer stays Cloudbreak in Gardens offers various options.

There are a number of backpackers at the top of Long Street in Cape Town, good for party-lovers. Observatory has a few options, but is 15 minutes from town. Sea Point and Greenpoint have serveral hostels too and are well placed between town and the Camps Bay beaches.

Near the Waterfront, Tip Top is the closest , and there are more in Greenpoint.

Most backpackers offer dorms, single and shared rooms, some en-suite.
