Excellent hostel but booking through HI was eventful; I booked online and paid the deposit but then the hostel emailed to say they were double booked and I had to have a different room from the one I booked. The proprietor said it shouldn't be possible because booking is automated, but it happened. There was no facility for getting members' rates.
Yes, I highly recommend staying at "The Backpack" You will get your monies worth - good vibes, friendly backpackers, safe and most of all fun place to stay. Also, everything is centrally located - long street, only 5 min walk. Secure car parking is available as well. Book and stay here, you won't regret it! My bed view was Table Mountain...
Une petite surprise désagréable à l'arrivée de 200 euros supplémentaires par rapport au prix annoncé. Erreur réparée quand je suis revenu contester. Sinon rien à redire à cette auberge très bien organisée avec un personnel très agréable.
