Backpacking in Cape Town for Budget Group Accommodation

As an organiser of group activities, whether corporate, school, work, sports etc. will tell you that the most difficult part is block-booking accommodation. If your group is planning to visit or work in Cape Town, you need look no further…

Riverlodge Backpackers has developed a budget accommodation niche for the South African market, especially larger groups such as film and construction crews, schools groups, school sport groups, team building and conference groups, church groups, NGO’s, universities, sports groups and the like who are looking for budget group accommodation options not too far from the Cape Town CBD. Riverlodge has been catering for these over the last eighteen years and has already endeared itself to local, national and international clientele.

Whether you want to book your group for a single night, a week or even a month or more, Riverlodge Backpackers in Oude Molen Eco-Village, Cape Town, welcomes you and has all the facilities to make your  group stay as comfortable and as safe as possible in these trying times.

For those  groups worried about health and safety, Riverlodge Backpackers is compliant with all social distancing and Covid19 protocols. Click HERE to go to the Covid19 info page  and you can read our previous blog about Backpacking in the Time of Covidfor a better understanding of the finer details. For the security of your group there are 25 internal security cameras and public liability.

A backpacking hostel is a nice alternative choice of accommodation for the more discerning and budget conscious groups and here’s why:

Riverlodge Backpackers is not your ordinary small hostel and has a 3 star rating by The Tourism and Grading Council of South Africa. This doesn’t mean it’s a three star hotel so don’t expect to find a TV in every room but you will find a warm, homely atmosphere complete with retro and antique furniture, local artwork and “Out Of Africa” style murals.
