About us

Want a bohemian stay in the most fascinating part of Cape Town? Observatory (or just Obs) is the most fascinating part of Cape Town. Nowhere else does the best city in the world (yes, Cape Town!) show so many sides of itself. And our Bohemian Lofts are in the centre of this little universe. Obs is truly bohemian: Students and trade union officials, tourists and artists, festivals and events, old timers and African expats, burlesque shows and beer, music and food, books, bunny chow and bourbon. During the Apartheid years (to the early 90s) Obs was one of the few areas that managed to cling onto its ‘grey-ness’. Everyone belonged then … and everyone still belongs. Our hostel is situated in the most beautiful old character building, previously a museum of contemporary art, with perfectly weathered Oregon wooden floors, sash widows and doors-with-personality (each one telling a story). From the balcony you can survey the whole of the Cape Peninsula before you or the life of life on the world famous Lower Main Rd below you. Then you can easily join the buzz and finally retire to your comfortable room for a well-earned rest. We’re affordable, funky and clean and we care about your safety. We’d love to meet you and hope to see you soon. Yes, we are a backpackers (a youth hostel), but we hope that we can also be a real home to you for a while. Breakfast:
We offer a free basic breakfast every morning of tea, coffee, toast and spreads. This is available between 7am and 10am. Internet:
We offer free unlimited wifi internet in our communal areas as well as our en-suite rooms. We also offer free use of our guest computer. ABOUT-US-PIC2 .

Why us?

Why Cape Town? Well, one could argue with 45 million travellers who voted Cape Town as the world’s no 1 destination. See here 

Why Observatory? Observatory is the place where the different sides of Cape Town’s personality all combine into one bohemian whole: Here you will find people of all descriptions. Everyone is welcome. 
There is never the slightest chance of a corporate sameness in Observatory and especially in Lower Main Rd . The shops, restaurants (and accomodation!) are all individual, creative, cool, quirky, fascinating and non-conformist. 

Observatory is also a good option for:
    ♦ accommodation close to the University of Cape Town
    ♦ accommodation for outreach volunteers.

From here you can get to the False Bay beaches, the West Coast beaches, the centre of Cape Town, the Cape Flats and much more. It is a perfect home base for a traveler, a student, an intern, a medical professional or an outreach volunteer. We’re also well positioned for accommodation for big sporting events such as:
    ♦ the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cyle Tour, or
    ♦ the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon. 

Why Bohemian Lofts?  Our hostel is located at the centre of everything that is happening in Lower Main Road Observatory. Yet, we are just outside the late night pub district. 

Our building – a former museum of contemporary art – is stunning. You will love its character, personality, looks and, yes, also it s functionality. Come experience our perfect-for-sunrise-watching and perfect-for-people-watching balcony: There are few streets as interesting as Lower Main Road. And then you may also be fascinated by some of our other building quirks such as our 30 feet high bathroom skylight – Too many to mention. 

And we can help you make the most of your stay through a great range of exciting day trips such as to Cape Point, wine tasting, Cape Malay cooking tours (and much more). We can even help you with your onward travel through other parts of South Africa and Africa. 

Bohemian Lofts backpackers hostel is also a good option for:
    ♦ accommodation close to Groote Schuur Hospital.
    ♦ accommodation close to UCT Medical School.
    ♦ accommodation close to Hartleyvale Hockey Stadium.

Why you?  And, of course, we bend over backwards to make your time here a memorable one. After all, it is about you… .
