This is a visit to one of the most exquisite backpackers in the Mother City and it goes by the name, wait for it. Awesome Backpackers!
There are a bunch of reasons why this is the backpackers you should check into when you land in Cape Town. Firstly it is close to all the tourist destinations you are going to visit, from the acclaimed V&A Waterfront which is less than a mile away as well as the magnificent Green Point Park with one of the stadiums the 2010 World Cup was played in, Cape Town stadium right across the road.
Just when you thought that's all, the venue is super close to the sea thus offering panoramic views of the ocean and adjoining restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The second reason is the fascinating history of Awesome Backpackers. According to the website, "It was willingly and joyfully designed from volunteers from all over the world." By merely checking in you become part of a collective global effort.
The one thing I've always enjoyed about checking into a backpackers is that you get to meet interesting people from all the world, Awesome backpackers is no exception as it attracts the finest clients both locally and internationally. They also offer a wide variety of activities to keep you entertained during your stay,
one of the most hilarious activities I indulged in is Beer Pong. As the name suggests, it is a drinking game in which players throw a ping pong ball across a table with the intent of landing the ball in a cup of beer on the other end. The game typically consists of opposing teams of two or more players. This kept everyone entertained till the wee hours of the morning.
Also on offer is one of the most compulsory activities you must indulge in when you're in South Africa, braaing. Soon after a good braai perhaps you might be interested in playing billiards and darts? The WiFi is not only efficient but also extremely free as well, you'll also have access to a restaurant, a shared kitchen and a shared lounge.
Due to the amazing location at Main Road, Green Point, Many explorers coming to Cape Town consider staying at Awesome Backpackers and bring out the awesomeness in them!
