Area Information:
Cape Town is not only the most popular international tourist destination in South Africa, but Africa as a whole. This is due to its good climate, natural setting, and well-developed infrastructure. The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain, which forms a large part of the Table Mountain National Park and is the back end of the City Bowl. Reaching the top of the mountain can be achieved either by hiking up, or by taking the Table Mountain Cableway. Cape Point is recognised as the dramatic headland at the end of the Cape Peninsula.

Many tourists also drive along Chapman's Peak Drive, a narrow road that links Noordhoek with Hout Bay, for the views of the Atlantic Ocean and nearby mountains. It is possible to either drive or hike up Signal Hill for closer views of the City Bowl and Table Mountain.

WOW, where do I begin? I had an amazing time at HomeBase. The staff are friendly and helpful from the owner Dee to the security guards. It's a home away from home literally. The rooms are super clean and comfy. The whole place is safe you never feel for a moment your life is under threat. Situated in the heart of the CBD you are minutes away from everything. Restaurants, bars, malls is just within walking distance. There are a lot of people from different people so you get to interact with other people of different nationalities. There is also a bar and yes they do have some tequila shots...lol. I cant wait to go there again on my next trip to Cape Town. I would recommend this place to everyone looking for accommodation that is not only affordable, but safe, comfy and homey. thank you Home Base for your incredible hospitality. See you soon!!
Superb. 5 out of 5

We were pleasantly surprised when we reached the floor of the reception and the rooms. It was clean and neat. Bathrooms clean and neat. The deck area took me by surprise. Nice place to chill.

The staff were more than accommodating when I requested an area to store our luggage for 16 people before book in time and after our book out time. They gave us a room to store our luggage. Thank you this was really appreciated.

Will recommend it to anyone, what appealed to me further was the honesty and trust of the guests staying there.

The staff are all awesome and friendly.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5
