Kimbo Lodge

Kimbo Lodge Backpackers is ideally situated on the corner of Buitenkant and Roeland streets in the heart of Cape Town, bordering Cape Town CBD, Gardens and District Six. Our backpackers Lodge offers 12 rooms above one of Cape Towns oldest historic Hotel and pubs (The Kimberley Hotel) that was built in 1895. This hotel was originally the starting point for the first settlers/miners and prospectors who travelled on horse-drawn carriages to the town of Kimberleys diamond mines. The Hotel and traditional Barnies English pub (locally known as The Kimbo Pub) on the ground level still offers a vintage charm with tiled walls, dark wood, as well as diamond and gold mining. Being at the edge of Cape Town City, the District Six Museum, Cape Towns historic Parliament, Green Market Square, The Castle of Goodhope, Gardens Shopping Mall and Long street (to mention but a few) are all in walking distance. Table Mountain Cable Way, The Waterfront, Seapoint and Camps Bay and their beaches are all within a 5 to 15 minutes drive. The surrounding neighbourhood is also famous for its Boutique Shops, Restaurants, Bars, Coffee shops and Nightclubs
