Stoked Backpackers is one of Cape Town's best beach hostels. With amazing views overlooking Surfers' Corner and False Bay, we are 100 metres away from Muizenberg Beach. Located 25km from the city centre, this popular swimming beach is a blue flag beach, which means it gets top marks for safety, cleanliness and amenities. The beach break produces consistent waves, making it a hot spot for surfing, kitesurfing and SUPing. In fact, Muizenberg is one of the World’s Best Surf Towns, according to National Geographic, who say, “A great surf town is the nearly magical sum of consistent waves, inviting accommodation, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat.”
Stoked Backpackers’ three-storey building has spacious rooms – all en-suite! – and offers a variety of shared dorm accommodation, as well as some private family/friends rooms.
Our communal room has an unbeatable view for watching the lines roll in, or the sunrise (if you’re up for it). We’ve got an awesome cafe where you can get a great cup of coffee, tasty bites and hang out with other travellers and locals.
We’ll definitely make sure you get the most out of Muizenberg and surrounds. Visit our activity centre for all the intel on what to do. On the water, there’s surfing, kitesurfing and stand-up paddling. If you don’t know how to do any of those, this is the perfect place to learn. There’s also boat tours that take you whale watching. For under the water, there’s scuba diving where you can cage dive with the great white sharks or free diving with much friendlier ones. Of course, there’s lots to do on land: it’s the perfect place to start your peninsula tour, foray into the Cape Winelands or climb, walk or hike our unique fynbos-covered mountains.
Crisp, fresh percale linen, thick spring mattresses and comfy duvets await you. Bathroom towels are supplied with private rooms and can be rented for the dorms. To save you from the wrapped-in-towel hallway dash, almost all the rooms have an en-suite bathrooms. There is free unlimited wifi, not only in the communal areas, but in all the rooms too. We also have digital safes in the private rooms and lockers in the dorms.
Reception desk is open from 8am to 8pm. If you are arriving after 8pm or before 8am, please let us know in advance.
