We are called HomeBase simply because we are your only home base when in Cape Town! We are situated on the top three floors of a seven storey building on the corner of Strand Street & Long Street.

Our home has individually themed rooms furnished in vintage and modern style and airy dorms well designed for groups and friends. For obvious reasons, our bathrooms are kept clean with air fresheners, hand soap, paper towels, shower mats and of course: mirrors for the beauts.

Without sounding conceited, our rooftop is really a stunner! No seriously, picture this: A green rooftop terrace with a mountain view that comes with an awesome bar, fully equipped kitchen, a dining area and a TV Lounge?  See?!

The other cool features you’d probably like is obviously the free WiFi (who wouldn’t?!), our free complimentary breakfast, 24 hour reception desk, barbecue facility, small library (no nerds were in mind when we created this room), laundry services and concierge help! We don’t want to mention the aesthetic art found in every corner of our home, but it’s one of those things that make our home youthfully different.



Our 24 hour reception has recommendations of things to do in and around Cape Town. We help book tours with reliable companies that facilitate the most amazing excursions in the entire Western Cape region. Our well informed reception staff will make things easiy for you, all you have to do is ask anytime you feel like adventuring.



Our complimentary breakfast is served every day between 07h30 and 09h30 in the morning, it consists of brown/white toast, cereal, muffins, coffee and/or tea. For a more substantial breakfast, our kitchen offers a variety to the menu with the following on sale:

  • Fried or Scrambled Eggs
  • Eggs & Bacon (+ Sausage)
  • Cheese Omelet (+ Bacon)
  • Yoghurt, Muesli, Banana & Apple
  • Smoothies



Every Friday, we do what has become a tradition to South Africans – barbecue, beer and bonding! We take out our tasty rich steaks, put them on a fire and serve them with three salads and a roll. Of course this will go down so nicely with your favorite drink sold at our rooftop bar. So do like the locals do, sign up upon arrival or simply send us a message and we’ll put your name down and your steak out 🙂
