Back to main conference info

Many people will be housed in the Mountain Manor Hostel (Back Packers Lodge): 17 Breda St, Cape Town 8001.

Telephone: +27 21 461 7200. See below for information about getting there from the airport.

The Mountain Manor (MM) hostel has wifi access, and here you will also have breakfast provided.
 
MM will not provide towels, so please bring your own!

The MM is a 15 minute walk from the City Hall, where the conference takes place. See map here and written directions here.

Those staying at the Mountain Manor are fine to walk in the daylight from the hostel to the City Hall. At night, we suggest you walk only in groups. In general when walking around Cape Town, it is best to not look too much like a tourist! Avoid having cameras on display.
