Ended up staying more than three weeks at the Sunflower! I was at ease most of the time, as the management ensured noise levels were acceptable (bar closes around 11PM; dorm room 7 is far away from the hectic at the front side of the Lodge). Facilities (especially the hot showers) are good and beds were comfortable with a private lamp and socket. WiFi worked well. The place is kept clean which is quite an achievement as many guests make a mess. The management does its utmost to keep different types of guests happy. Location of the Sunflower lodge is in Green Point, about half an hour walk from Long street in the center of Cape Town. I felt more secure in Green Point. After 6PM it is better to avoid the center anyway. There is a good public transportation link with MyCiTi buses (118, 114, 109 and 108) except on Sundays when there are fewer buses. During checking-out my day pack miraculously disappeared. They would check CCTV, but did not get back to me. Overall a good place to stay.

We didn't stay at the building. Dagga consumption in our presence made us look for an alternative accommodation. We Have contacted Afristay to request refund as what is sold on their website is not what we found. Traveling from Johannesburg to Cape Town was a breeze until we arrived wlto a place where smoking in our parameters was practiced.

The place is totally different from what was advertised, the bedding was never changed for 7days of our stay, the kitchen was dirty we as guests had to clean after other guests dirtiness, no customers service from the reception helper, she was moody and getting annoyed at all times.our light was not working from our room but we reported that but we never received any maintenance to be fixed and they said no booze was allowed but guests bought booze from outside and drank it in the yard ,guests brought their own speakers and played them in their rooms.Customer service that you definitely need to work on thats for sure.

Too many noisy people hanging around. Dagga openly smoked around the pool area. Difficult to identify who is running the place and who is there partying/drinking/smoking dagga on a daily basis. NO secure parking on the premises.
