    My journey was delayed and in result I lost my night at no5 Guesthouse as I got to Cape Town early in the morning but they were so friendly and they let me use the room and stay a bit extra, so I could have a shower and catch a little bit of sleep before my long flight home! The place was clean and lovely with a great breakfast!

    The hosts, especially Marie-Laure, are incredibly friendly and soooooo lovely. She has such a positive spirit, gave us many recomendations for our trip and planed it with us. Her positive energy is really contagious. We felt very very comfortable in this lovely place and familiar atmosphere. Thanks a lot for the warm welcome, it was the beste start we could have for our vacation! :-) PS: Nelson is also a really nice guy! He booked for us at Black Sheep and had given us also nice recomendations.

    Marie makes you feel very welcome. She has plenty of good ideas to share to make your visit of Cape Town and surroundings a success. She is genuinely interested in your experiences and makes you feel at home. Her guesthouse is nicely decorated, breakfast is delicious, all in a relaxed atmosphere. I’ll come again!

    Marie is the most helpfu and attentive hostess I have ever encountered in SA.

    The toilet is relatively small and in low privacy.
