Can you believe that another month has flown by? Already in November we find ourselves hurtling head first, straight into the the summer season. And you can already feel that Cape Town summer vibe in the air.

But for now let us focus on the month that has just passed as we would like to thank the all the never@home crew for an epic October. The hostel was buzzing and you guys were awesome! However there can only be ONE Crew Member of the Month and this month we have awarded Marlon this extremely well deserved title.

Marlon, recently stepped in as the bar supervisor for the Randy Warthog and we have been wowed by his commitment and devotion to the bar. Marlon has also worked his butt off over the past few months by doing lots of extra hours at the bar. He has also shown his creative side and the bar is looking fab as a consequence of his new displays and ideas. We are simply loving the Randy’s cool vibe right now, keep up the great work Marlon!

Work, make money for my son and evolve as a person. Cape Town is the best!

7) If you could take only take one item on holiday with you, what would it be and why?
