Cheap Hostels in Cape Town

Search Cape Town hostels with up-to-date availability and book a hostel in Cape Town.

Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa , as well as the southernmost city. It is know as a good base camp for exploring the famous Cape Winelands region, in addition to offering a lot of places to see in the city. It is also a base for exploring the wildlife and the nature.

There are lots of hostels in Cape Town so finding a cheap place to stay shouldn’t be a problem. Consider staying in the suburbs, such as Muizenberg, Fish Hoek or Simon’s Town or Cape Winelands, as they offer the cheapest accommodation options.

Remember that even hostels often use the word “backpacker” in their name, it doesn’t mean they cater only for backpackers. There aren’t any age restrictions either. Also, look for places which use the word “lodge” in their name as they offer the same services and prices as hostels. These types of budget places are excellent for those who want to socialize and don’t need all the facilities hotels offer.

If you don’t fancy staying in a room with 10 or 20 other fellow travelers, you can choose a private room. Most hostels offer this choice and the prices aren’t very high and definitely lower than if you choose a hotel in Cape Town .

Prices start at US$12 per night per person whether you stay in a dorm or a budget triple room (but they do depend on location). It is also possible to rent a tent (especially if you plan to spend some time in the nature).
