    I booked it but there was no one to see me at the gate and it was above a bar and the barman had a list which I wasn't on and he refused to do anything about it and I had to find another place late at night.

    Value for money.”

    The hotel is located in downtown just minutes away from all necessities of life. The hotel has an inhouse bar ATM. laundry and restsurant. The breakfast was delicious and fresh . Staff is attentive and cooperative. Mr Grant, the Manager ( perhaps owner too ) is a very kind and gentelman. His exceptional care for guests is praiseworthy. At least, I will always remember him and his hotel. Thank you sir.

    Historic landmark that has a new life”

    From the airport, the best way to go is by taxi as it is nearly the same price as shared transport to this location. It is from 240 to 260 Rand. You can get it prebooked online via bookings @ sport24hrs.co.za which is the service I used back to the airport. I used the service at the arrivals hall counter on the way in, but I think just to the taxi stand might be the same. Pre-book is best but ask for the big red car if you have lots of baggage. Now to the Kimbo. check-in was easy even at the late night arrival I had. There was a welcome drink in the bar area. This was not punch but rather a drink with a punch if you know what I mean (wink). Speaking of the bar, the locals and visitors like to mingle and relax together and drink into the early morning. The room was fine (I got the 3-bed dorm) and he wifi also worked well. This location is central to get where you need to be. What I really likes was the breakfast and the dinner. the dinner is not free, but well worth the price. The portions are large and tasty. I had the bangers and mash several times. There is no elevator so if you are mobility challenged or just hate stairs, you might want to skip this place. For everyone else, this is a perfect place to hang your hat for several days while checking out Capetown.

    Mostly good, some kinks needs ironing out”

    It was a nice setting, nice room, very friendly helpful staff. Few things they should be more upfront with on Agoda, spesifically like the parking issue, (There is no free parking on premises, parking is on the street, government parking attendants charge in the week and half days saturdays.) And wifi does not extend to top rooms only second and public areas, so it would be more appropriate to advertise as wifi in public areas. But will definitely recommend this backpackers!

    Horror Backpacker! Schlaflose Nächte und Ekel! ”

    Wir hatten nach der positiven Bewertung bzgl. Lage und Preis-Leistung uns für 3 Nächte in der Lodge entschieden und im Voraus bezahlt. Nach einer ganzen Nacht haben wir uns bereits für die Abreise entschieden. Die Zimmer sind schrecklich dunkel (Airbrush-Planeten-Wände aus den 80ger aus schwarz-lila Farben), verdreckt und stinken. Bewusst keine Bilder davon im Internet gezeigt, verständlich bei dem Zustand!! Am Besten die Schuhe nicht ausziehen, Teppich klebt und kratzt! Betten müffeln nach sehr alten Bettzeug, wir haben es nur mit Kleidung getraut reinzulegen. Das Frühstück war das einzig Positive, allerdings erfolgt das auch nur neben an in einem seperatem Restaurant (2 Sorten zur Auswahl). Wir hatten in Kapstadt für das gleiche Geld bessere Lodges erhalten, sogar mit eigenem Bad! Im Kimbo haben wir uns für eine Sammeldusche entschieden, generell ist das auch kein Problem für uns, aber hier war alles dreckig, defekt und das Wasser ist immer übergelaufen. Das Fenster war stets geöffnet und jeder Nachbar durfte zuschauen. Klopapier wurde selten nachgefüllt und Sauberkeit ist ein absolutes Fremdwort! Das Schlimmste ist allerdings die Lautstärke in der Nacht! Man bekommt kein Auge zu, die ganze Nacht ist durch und durch Lärm (Hotelgäste in den Gängen (sehr hellhörig), Bar-Besucher unten im Pub (gehört zum Hotel) und die Straße ist sehr stark befahren. Als wir ausgecheckt haben kam keine Frage warum und das Geld haben wir auch nicht zurück erhalten, obwohl man das aus Kulanz sehr wohl hätte anbieten können (es waren viele Zimmer zu diesem Zeitraum frei, also wir haben keine anderen Gäste gehindert mit unserer Belegung!). Nie wieder in dieser Lodge - für das Geld gibt es saubere, schöne Lodges für Backpacker auch im Zentrum von Kapstadt! Die Straße ist Nachts nicht für Touristen geeigent und man kann sein Auto in einer Tiefgarage sicher parken zahlt aber auch noch dafür extra! W-Lan-Verbindung ist sehr schlecht in den Zimmern!

    Quarto fedido”

    O quarto que peguei era de 4 camas, ficava acima do pub e tinha um odor forte de cigarro oque atrapalhou meu sono durante as noites, fora isso o café da manha é ótimo, e é ao lado de um ponto pdo My city bus. Obs: O Pub abaixo do hotel é bem bacana.
