We offer space in historic Victorian houses, on the eccentric Observatory . Our tenants are mainly young people from all over the world, exploring Cape Town to get an authentic experience of the local culture and meet new friends
Rooms are private or shared between two people with both single and double beds available – ask for the combination that suits you! Each room comes with a lock and luggage storage/ closet space available. The houses each have a yard and porch perfect for having a braai (local slang for BBQ!) or enjoying the street view, plus plenty of communal space for hanging out with the other tenants
Free Wifi, laundry facilities, towels provided, shared shower and bathroom, full kitchen stocked with cooking supplies. Our cleaning service scrubs the houses top to bottom twice a week and we can hook you up with fun events and happenings around town
Interaction with guests
As much as you want! You can have full privacy and literally just rent a room from us, or get social with us and the other guests to dive into a full program of dinners, events, travel opportunities, weekend activities, and more. Your experience is up to you
