They don't take South Africans "without passports"”

I have a passport, but didn't bring it to town because who carries their passport in their own country. I used my national ID to board the plane. Yet, this is not enough for a backpacking joint. This establishment claims that for safety reasons, they have to reject anyone without a passport. Draw your own conclusions.

don't stay here. ”

even the atmosphere in the hostel is great, the rooms are pretty awful. Beds are old and uncomfortable, the courtins haven't been cleaned in ages and the smoke smell covers everything. Bathrooms aren't better. Not only because there was only one for 10 people but because of the mustiness covering the shower walls. Really desgusting.

在开普敦的住宿都在这、本来订了别墅最后也让我给退了、因为这里实在是太方便,小伙伴们也很好,和很多人交谈,晚上还有酒吧,二楼有阳台和桌球,每周日有免费汤,老板、前台和守卫,每个人都很棒。这里也很安全,到市区的所有景点几乎都可以步行到达,还有充足的热水,非常推荐。
