Our bedrooms are all individually decorated with creative items and many original works of art.

Area Information:
Woodstock is 4 kilometers from the center of Cape Town and 6 km to the V&A Waterfront. Its is famous for it large size graffiti artworks and hosts Cape Town's most famous market at the Old Biscuit Mill. This up and coming area boasts many quirky shops, art studios, vintage stores and is home to 6 craft beer breweries and many cafes and restaurants.

MyCiti bus service , Cape Town's new rapid transport bus system, has a stop just a minutes walk from the lodge. The area is also serviced by local mini buses as well as metered taxis.

In Room Facilities:
The communal bathrooms offer privacy with excellent fittings and loads of hot water, with all the bedrooms leading out onto private balconies.

Staying in Woodstock gives the visitor a real sense of inner-city living, whilst positioning one close to the city centre, bustling Long Street, the museums, galleries, trendy Kloof Street and the V&A Waterfront. Table Mountain looms in the background and one has a sense of the city as it really is.
Woodstock's image has drastically changed and an urban renewal has seen a number of warehouses and Victorian cottages converted into trendy character spaces to encourage commercial investors such as the Neighbour Goods Market in the refurbished Old Biscuit Mill - an extremely popular Saturday morning meeting place, where buying local food has taken on new meaning.

Young professionals are snapping up Victorian semis and taking advantage of these still affordable homes. Add to this a couple of neighbourhood restaurants and cafés and Woodstock’s acquired village atmosphere makes it a suburb to be reckoned with.
