  • Descripción


    Our famous hostel is situated right in the middle of the CBD in the entertainment precinct of Cape Town. We have been described as 'the soul of the Street' - and we hope that's a good thing!!?? Our hostel is a lovely old building at the top end of the street with a sunny and leafy courtyard, fantastic balconies with views onto signal hill and the busy streets. We are an 'old-school' hostel and differentiate ourselves from the new generation of 'poshtels'. We are all about communalism and laid back fun and adventure. We share meals and outings together, we party together (often!!!) and we treat guests and staff alike as party of our weird and wonderful family. It is a large hostel sleeping up to 80 guests and there is never a dull moment or a day without adventure.

    Most of our paid staff are refugees from Zimbabwe and we ensure that our volunteer program supports these individuals and improves their skills and working conditions. Volunteers will never be used to replace paid workers but only to support them.

    In our street level premesis we also support a group of 20 art vendors who come from across the African continent - we endeavor to use our volunteers to support these vendors and improve their working conditions. Whether this is helping them with specific projects or just making tea for everyone in the morning.

    Don't take our word for it - please read the feedback from our previous volunteers! :)

    Each night is different and so your duties will depend on what's happening that night. Managers might ask you to facilitate some games (beerpong / flipcup / karaoke ).

    Family cooking nights - we try do these 3 times a week. Everyone contributes to a meal and you can showcase your local cuisine or help someone else prepare a meal.
