Uiters onaangenaam en 'n geld mors.

My parkering was in die straat sonder sekuriteit. Ek het soos 'n vreemdeling gevoel, eintlik bedreig gevoel. Die TV se beeld was hopeloos en so kan ek aangaan. Uiters onaangenaam.

Wat 'n onvergeetlike naweek!

Ons was baie beindruk met Forty8 Backpackers Hotel. Weereens was die personeel baie vriendelik en bebulpsaam. Ons het 'n pragtige kamer gehad en daar was geen klagtes. Alles is in loopafstand en dis baie maklik om van punt A tot B te beweeg. Sal definitief weer die Hotel besoek en ons vriende na julle verwys.

Ontvangs was koud en teleurstellend. G'n hulp was aangebied, andersins was ons verblyf aanvaarbaar.

Die personeel by ontvangs was onvriendelik en teleurstellend - 'n Glimlag sou 'n groot verskil maak. Een van die personeellede het ons gehelp met ons bagasie nadat ons moes soebat / vra. Hulp was nie spontaan aangebied nie. Die Hotel is netjies en dit was regtig 'n plus. 'n Tikkie vriendelikheid van die personeel sal beslis 'n groot verskil maak.

Die ligging is perfek, maar daar is heelwat klein goedjies wat beter kon wees.

Die "communal areas" is redelik klein, daar is nie 'n tafel in die kamers nie, maar die badkamers was skoon, die kamers was skoon, die personeel was vriendelik en dit is ideaal geleë.

Unhygenic; not recommended.

Not much can be expected of a backpackers, but this was below standard with mouldy shower ceilings, non-regular cleaning of bathrooms. We also confirmed that they do not replace old linen when new guest arrive. Saw it with our own eyes!

Unhappy!

The hotel is okay, only lack in hospitality as the staff are not welcoming. There is only one guy who is working at night and he is good. When we checked in, we were given keys and we had to ask where the rooms are. The lady just directed us and we have to find the rooms by ourselves. The rooms where cold with not enough blankets at night. The tall dark guy went up and helped to get us better rooms. Thanks to him otherwise, we were going to freeze

Good place

Its very good and affordable, and also in the heart of CBD. However, I would prefer that they build more toilets in they rooms, as people prefer to have their own toilet rather than sharing. Thanks.

Baie skoon en netjies, maar die omgewing is baie woelig in die aand.

Die personeel is baie vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die kamers is goed ingerig en skoon. Die omgewing is net te woelig in die aand, wat dit onmoontlik maak om rustig te slaap.

Bevredigend!

Die plek is sentraal geleë, maar nie baie veilig nie. Die parkering was 'n effense probleem. Die kamer is effens beknop, kragproppe is onvoldoende, en sodoende het die TV nie behoorlik gewerk nie. Die badkamer is baie netjies vir "backpackers". Die kombuis, eet- en kuierarea was heel gerieflik.

Uitstekende waarde vir geld in die hart van Kaapstad.

Ek sal Forty8 aanbeveel aan enige iemand. Dit is 'n backpackers en die verblyf is in koshuisstylkamers met gedeelde badkamers - maar as jy net op soek is na 'n bed om in te slaap, dan is dit uitstekend. Die geriewe was skoon en netjies en daar was deurgaans personeel beskikbaar. Ek sal weer gaan.
