A BazBus Stop. Closest Backpackers to Groote Schuur Hospital, The Green Elephant is situated in the lively student area of Observatory. Close to the University of Cape Town, Observatory has great coffee shops, restaurants, public transport, shops, movies, sports grounds and theatres it is well placed for a base in Cape Town while you enjoy the benefits the Cape has to offer. Being in a student area, the pubs are full of young people and prices are low. We are not in the centre of the city! Because we understand travelling on a budget, we continuously offer you the best deals in Cape Town. There is no compromise on quality, only affordability. We are here to enjoy ourselves too, so join us when we go parachuting, sailing, hiking or just out partying.
