The Volunteer House is the most popular accommodation for our volunteers. Here you can meet other volunteers and share your experience.
It is very affordable and therefore ideal for long-term stays.
The average age is 17 to 25. Students visiting our language school may also stay at the Volunteer House.
Two to four volunteers share one room. There are 4 bathrooms to share, a kitchen for self-catering, a large common area, a garden and a pool. Wifi is available at an extra cost.
In addition to the self-catering facilities, volunteers have the option of ordering homemade meals (Monday to Friday) that only require reheating. Volunteers can choose to order lunch only, dinner only, or both. These healthy meals are freshly made and delivered daily. Orders are made while in Cape Town at least 2 days in advance.
The Volunteer House is a private house in an upmarket residential area. You can reach the nearest MetroRail station within 5 minutes.
The commercial centre of the southern suburbs as well as Rondebosch, an area frequented by university students, can be reached within a 15-minute walk. In both areas, you will find shops, restaurants, bars, banks and everything else you might need.
We also provide a shuttle service from the Volunteer House to projects which cannot easily be reached by public transport.
