Got a room with a magnificent view of the beach. But it was very basic. No soap. Dirty windows. No tv. For R1000 a night, I thought it was not cheap either. Did not sleep well. Noisy on the beach and the trains start early right outside. I am sure there is better at the price.

This spot a stone's throw away from Muizenberg beach offers a wide range of room options with friendly staff. The communal area offers a great view with great facilities. Start your day at the cafe adjoined with coffee and pastry, cant beat that.

First off rooms are always perfect here. I have stayed here on maybe 4 or 5 trips to Cape Town in the past 12 months. Showers are half decent (the good half) and the bedding always feels soft, clean and supported by good quality beds. The lay out of the the building is also pretty nice. The kitchen / balcony...

The accommodation has a chill area with a Kitchen, t.v. room and a balcony with a view of the ocean. The reception area is always helpful and the staff is friendly. My only complain was with the sleeping arrangements. They booked us into a 5-sleeper but did not mention that it is linked to a private room and has a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Looking for a great backpackers or hostel in Muizenberg? You’ve come to the right place! Stoked Backpackers is literally a stone’s throw away from Surfers’ Corner in Muizenberg, Cape Town. This popular swimming beach is a blue flag beach, which means it gets top marks for safety, cleanliness and amenities. The beach break produces great waves, making it a hot spot for surfers. In fact, Muizenberg is one of the World’s Best Surf Towns, according to National Geographic, who say, "A great surf town is the nearly magical sum of consistent waves, inviting accommodation, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat." ... more   less
