'Forget everything you once thought or believed about backpacking and join us on a new and unique journey in Cape Town'

33 South is a 'Boutique Backpackers' - not only because of our individually themed rooms, percale linen and safe per person (the list continues... free breakfast... free internet! etc) - but also, because we care - and we want you to enjoy your stay in Cape Town. Our staff are here 24 hours a day to help you with questions, queries, tips.

Observatory (Affectionately called 'OBS' by it's locals) is the student neighbourhood of Cape Town. It is characterized by cheap beer and good food topped off with an array of artists and musicians that leave you begging for more. It has been compared to Fitzroy in Melbourne, or Palermo in Buenos Aires. There are daily specials available - and you can discover OBS on our DAILY FREE TOUR!

At the reception you'll not only find a selection of tours, activities and great music, but also insider-info on the best restaurants, surf spots, music festivals and loads of 'off-the-beaten-track' adventures.
