Situated in "OBZ" (Observatory) the bohemian student neighbourhood of Cape Town, 33 South is in the centre of everything hot and happening!Jam-packed with quaint bars, vibey restaurants of all sizes, atmospheres and flavours, live music venues, pool bars and so much more; as well as a stones throw from the train line, Obz really is the place to be.
33 South is in a quiet street, about a 30 second walk away from all the hustle and bustle of the lower main road. 33 South is a "BOUTIQUE BACKPACKERS" - a place where independent travellers can live in a backpacker-style accommodation, while still enjoying the luxuries of a boutique hotel or guesthouse. Breakfast included? Yes. Hotel quality percale linen? Definitely. Attentive and knowledgeable staff? "Fo Sho!" We even have Elvis working here. thankyouverymuch....
With each room themed after a neighbourhood in Cape Town, you really don't need to travel far to get a taste of Cape Town and it's rich cultural diversity. However, should you decide (and we certainly recommend it!) to spend your days out and about, our travel centre can supply you with a wealth of knowledge - from overland trips, to local roadtrips, to where the best surf is, to VIP and free entrance to clubs and even underground trance parties! For photos and most recent events, check out our Facebook group. And be sure not to miss our exciting parties, drum circles and Friday "BRAAI" [pronounced BR-eye = South African Barbecue!]
