During a 3-day mini vacation in Cape Town, we stayed at 3 different backpackers all different nights (due to full houses that couldn't accommodate us for more than one night), and Sleepy Backpackers were our favourite. It's cosy, well-equipped, clean and beautiful. It's within walking distance of the beach and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

Superb. 5 out of 5
