It always makes a difference when the owner is hands on to check that things are running smoothly. I received a warm welcome and was impressed by the hospitality of the staff and other guest, this is especially important if you are a solo traveler. Muizenberg itself is an awesome chilled-vibe town if you want to escape the uber trendy hustle and bustle of Cape Town. The surf and water is so inviting and safe if you are not used to the Cape ocean. Basically no rips, you can jump over broken waves, perfect for beginners. The Backpackers is situated with an ocean view of Surfer Corner 180 degrees plus from the balcony where everyone usually have a chat - so nice. I came down with the Metrorail train from Cape Town for R13.70 vs R350 for a shuttle/taxi. I also went to Simons Town and Kalkbay with the train. The veiws from the train is lovely. I would recommend this.
Coolest place to hang/meet people do amazing stuff with/surf is right in front of the backpackers. Other surf options within 20 minute drive in the most beautiful City in the world. Nature rules, energetic homely vibes with a slight twist of surf camp/Yoga namaste like... Shaka!
