SAWUBONA! We hope to welcome you soon.

33 South is a 'Boutique Backpackers' - not only because of our individually themed rooms, percale linen and safe per person (the list continues... free breakfast... free internet! etc) - but also, because we care - and we want you to enjoy your stay in Cape Town. Our staff are here 24 hours a day to help you with questions, queries, tips.

The fun doesn't start on the weekend... we make the most of our week days too. Friday is BBQ day so come join us for some tasty meat and great people.

Observatory (Affectionately called 'OBS' by it's locals) is the student neighbourhood of Cape Town. It is characterized by cheap beer and good food topped off with an array of artists and musicians that leave you begging for more. It has been compared to Fitzroy in Melbourne, or Palermo in Buenos Aires. There are daily specials available - and you can discover OBS on our DAILY FREE TOUR!

The 'Stoked School of Surf' is now operating from 33 South boutique backpackers - beginner surfers to advanced will find their surfing legs with Michelle - our gorgeous in-house surf-coach extraordinaire!

'Forget everything you once thought or believed about backpacking and join us on a new and unique journey in Cape Town'
