About Stoked Backpackers

If you are looking for a great backpackers or hostel in Muizenberg, you’ve come to the right place. Stoked Backpackers is literally a stone’s throw away from Surfers’ Corner in Muizenberg, Cape Town.

The popular Muizenberg beach is a Blue Flag beach, which means it gets top marks for safety, cleanliness and amenities. The beach break produces great waves, making it a hot spot for surfers. In fact, Muizenberg is one of the 'World’s Best Surf Towns' according to National Geographic, who say, 'A great surf town is the nearly magical sum of consistent waves, inviting accommodation, friendly locals, fun nightlife, delicious food, and plenty of activities should the ocean go flat'.

Stoked Backpackers’ three-storey building is newly renovated, so all the amenities in our youth hostel are brand spanking new. We offer a variety of shared dorm accommodation, as well as some private family rooms, doubles and twin rooms. There crisp, fresh percale linen and comfy duvets await you. All the spacious rooms are en-suite, therefore saving you from the wrapped-in-towel hallway dash. On that note, bring your own beach towel or renting them is also an option.

Our communal lounge, kitchen and deck have an unbeatable view for watching the lines roll in or the sunrise. We’ve got an awesome café where you can get a great cup of coffee, tasty bites and hang out with other travellers and locals. The kitchen is fitted with everything necessary for you to whip up a culinary masterpiece. But if you’re feeling mellow, just come down to our cafe.

We’ll definitely make sure you get the most out of Muizenberg and surrounds. Visit our activity centre for all the intel on what to do. On the water, there’s surfing, kitesurfing and stand-up paddling. If you don’t know how to do any of those, this is the perfect place to learn. There’s also boat tours that take you whale watching. For under the water, there’s scuba diving where you can cage dive with the great white sharks or free diving with much friendlier ones.

So after a hard day surfing the waves, hiking the mountain, cruising the peninsula or lying on the beach, come relax and enjoy the view.

Very confortable dorms with own bathroom, cozy community area and the best rooftop balcony ever! Surfers Corner with many surfing schools just around the corner.A little bit noisy because the train Station is in front of the Building.

Stoked Backpackers is very affordable and neat, but unfortunately their customer service leaves a lot to be desired. Staff are unfriendly and unhelpful. Furthermore the coffee shop downstairs only serves vegetarian/vegan food. Although the idea is all PC, it is still inconsiderate not to cater for all their guests.
