Poshhostel is The Backpack & Africa Travel Centre, located at 74 New Church Street in Cape Town. Best friends Lee and Toni began South Africa’s first youth hostel in 1990 and would bribe the train master with a 6-pack of beer to lure anyone sporting a backpack to come their way, their little VW beetle serving as the shuttle.
‘We never wanted to just run a backpackers, we always wanted to make a difference.’ Toni
Now 21 years later, The Backpack has grown and take pride in contributing to the growth and empowerment of Cape Town’s community. The Backpack is proudly Fair Trade Accredited and supports numerous community projects, also offering guests the opportunity to get involved with the wonderful people of Cape Town on a grass roots level.
