Recent guest reviews

place is clean, comfortable and the staff are fully on point. free coffee all day and continental breakfast is a nice touch too. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling in Cape Town, it's got something to offer everyone

My partner and I stayed at A Sunflower Stop for 5 nights in a shared dorm room. It was super clean and everyone was respectful. It’s situated close to shops and the V&A Waterfront which was a bonus! Highly recommend!

Our stay at the Sunflower Stop is always pleasant and serves our purpose well. Allways a pleasure staying there. Sunflower Stop is perfectly located for visiting Campsbay / Houtbay on the one side and The Waterfront / Blouberg Strand on the other side and then inland are all the wine farms.

We had the most wonderful stay at the Sunflower Stop Backpackers on a Wednesday night. We were going to a concert in Greenpoint, and they happily accommodated us at the last minute and made our stay such a pleasant experience. We will definitely be back :-)

My stay at Sunflower Stop was great! It is very close to Waterfront. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Bedrooms were very nice and clean. The toilets and showers were clean as well. I would highly recommend staying here.

Stayed in twin room (shared bathroom) for one night. Easy and friendly check in, clean rooms and clean shared bathrooms, nice atmosphere. Only downside was WiFi didn’t reach my room so had to use in the the corridor

I stayed here for nearly 3 weeks, it was outstanding, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the whole place was kept clean and tidy and it was easy to get to places from there. Would definitely return!

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!
