The Glam, Cape Town
Just Ok
The Glam was basic but clean and reasonably priced. The area was not so convenient at nighttime. No where nearby at all.

The Glam, Cape Town
Our stay was amazing. Loved the establishment and its front desk staff who treated us with care and her willingness to assist. .

Very Good8.0
Loved staying at The Glam. It's very close to all the places you want to see while in Cape Town. V&A Waterfront is a 15 minutes walk away. The table mountains are a 20 minutes cab drive and you can see the Robben Island from your room. My only complaint is that the rooms don't have air conditioning and the bathroom does not have a door to separate the washroom from the sleeping area.
Stella, ie3 night trip with friends
The Glam, Cape Town
Very poor service from receptionist both when checking in and pit. No personality, explains nothing seems rude

Horror Stay between Rubble and Ruins
Horribly dilapidated property, no service, torn towels, sub-standard breakfast, view from room on bins and rubble. This would not even be considered as Backpacker!
