Das Hostel/Jugendherberge The Backpackers liegt in super zentraler Lage im Herzen von Kapstadt. Die Ausstattung ist genau auf Backpacker abgestimmt, wir haben geschlafen wie die Murmeltiere, und auch der Service stimmt! Besonders die Managerin Toni ist darauf aus, uns die Suedafrikaner naeher zu bringen und zeigt gerne potentielle Spendenmoeglichkeiten auf oder steht mit Sightseeing Tipps zur Seite! Wir kommen wieder!
