Located in the suburb of Gardens in Cape Town, this residence consists of a main house providing accommodation, with meals, for 32 young women in a hostel-style facility, plus a separate house providing self-catering units accommodating a further 9 residents. In addition, we can accommodate up to 9 guests in five private rooms. It is managed by a live-in Management couple and a Local Association Committee.
The main house provides bedrooms with a bed and mattress, wardrobe, chest of drawers, built-in bookcase, study table and chair plus a hand-basin. There are bathrooms (upstairs and downstairs) consisting of toilet, hand-basin and shower stall and/or bath. Communal lounges and a separate dining room are provided for the use of the residents and guests, while kitchen staff provide the meals.
The residents of the main house are expected to bring their own linen, blankets and/or duvets. Should they wish to use a heater during the winter months, a small fan heater is preferred. After obtaining permission, they may purchase their own bar fridge, but they are charged a monthly fee for this.

While staying at The YW Cape Town ….
It was a massive relief coming home after a long day to a hearty meal and friendly, familiar faces. I must admit that pudding nights were my favourite nights! One of my fondest memories was sitting in the kitchen with our cook, Aunty Anne. It was a chilly Saturday evening and she was preparing muffin mixture to be baked for our breakfast the next day. I sat on the chest freezer watching her magic unfold, and we chatted for hours. The smell of those muffins definitely got me up in time for church the next day. Safe, always spotless, and a support system just a knock or call away – the YW will always have a special place in my heart.
