A Sunflower Stop - Hostel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice place, a little simple, but very nice people working there. Definitely a good stopover place. I like that its a bar, makes it social, but at the same time it got a bit noisy after midnight. I needed to get up early, so not the best for getting a quiet night.

My stay at Sunflower Stop was great! It is very close to Waterfront, the Stadium and Camps Bay. It has a great breakfast with many types of cereal, bread, juice, milk and coffee. The rooms and bathroom were very clean. The only thing that I suggest is to have more adapter outlets in the rooms.

Stayed here now the third time and it just gets better and better :) super friendly people, staff is always super helpful, great breakfast, everything clean and the best bar ;) everything you need is reachable by foot. There's a nice pool and a good braai area :) beat backpackers I stayed in so far!

This place definitely exceeded our expectations for a backpackers. We had our own room and en suite bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful and their breakfast area was also quite pleasant. In the end it felt like staying at a house with housemates. Very laid back feeling. They also have a chilled bar where you can hang out with the rest of the housemates.

Definitely an amazing place to stay! The staff were kind enough to wait until 2am in the morning to allow me to check-in. Just amazing! Would recommend it to anyone who is in Capetown especially solo travelers.

Lovely hostel, nice bar area, good weekly braai, staff excellent and very friendly had a lovely time staying here. Till next time a sunflower stop. Thanks mickey,Linda and Kayleigh for making my stay in Cape Town enjoyable. Matt

Was enjoyable, one problem was the noise, the door slamming and people talking and laughing loudly at night after 11pm. Room was spaceous and comfortable, breakfast was great. Staff all helpful and friendly. Nice to have a swimming pool. Kitchen well equiped and clean.

This was an amazing experience. I met so many great people!!!!! The manager, bartenders, cleaning staff everyone is so nice and welcoming. They made our time enjoyable and I will never forget my experience at this place. I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you stay here!!

For a budget room and hostel, this place is great. Very clean shared bathrooms and showers. Large rooms. Excellent staff. Fun bar and atmosphere. Located within walking distance of the waterfront and the rest of Green Point.

Super friendly people, great breakfast and a nice Brie on Christmas (just had to bring meat, nice salads and bread were offered), cool bar, nice pool and you can reach everything you need by foot. Very good and friendly backpackers to stay in! Will come again next week ;)
