33 South Boutique Backpackers

Situated in "OBZ" (Observatory) the bohemian student neighborhood 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 travelers 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. Whether you choose to spend the night in an extra-sized bed in District 6, the colourful Bo-kaap, Khayalitsha Shack chic or the cool and breezy Kalk bay room (amongst others) - Kim, Michelle, Patti, Elvis and the rest of the friendly staff will make sure you feel at home in this spacious Victorian house.

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 Sunday "BRAAI" [pronounced BR-eye = South African Barbeque!]

Comfort, safety and security are top priority. To ensure this, each guest has their very own large locking cupboard with digital code safe, extra-sized bed with the softest fresh linen and the night-watchman Elvis will keep you safe and entertained.

"Flashpackers" and Adventure Travellers - Welcome to Cape Town , and 33 South!
