Villa Viva Guesthouse

We are Villa Viva, the new home and creative hub of Viva con Agua South Africa.
We are part of the Viva con Agua Family (VcA) which is an organization committed to establishing and access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene. We follow the vision Water for ALL and ALL for Water!
Villa Viva is an innovative social business, a platform and meeting place for networking, creative work and social business approaches. Majority of Villa Viva Backpack profits will go to our water projects. We are inspired and want to inspire others through the universal languages of Music, Art and Sport. We believe in the power of togetherness, collaboration and synergies in order to make a difference in providing the basic human right of water.

We are located right in the heart and hustle of The Mother City, Cape Town.

Viva con Agua stands for connection & communication, creativity & joy, sustainability & WASH (water, sanitation Hygiene) projects. Being part of Viva con Agua volunteer family and living in our newly opened Villa Viva Backpackers accommodation will enable you to create and shape the start of Viva con Agua South Africa with your own authentic contribution and footprint. Spend your weekdays supporting the creation of Villa Viva Backpack, connect with our guests, organize events, paint walls, create marketing campaigns or help us run our social media. On top of that you can help us run our social programmes and projects like Football 4 Wash training with pupils, campaign for the human right of water or run our Wash Bus for the homeless. After the purposeful activity is done, you can spend weekends hiking Table Mountain, surfing the waves of the Atlantic ocean, or enjoying Cape Town's world-famous night life. The city is a melting pot for young people from all over the world, and you are bound to find yourself in the company of lifelong friends.

I had one of the best experiences of my life in this place, this is the place to embrace.
Here you really immerse yourself in the local culture, meet new people all the time and learn a lot.
Thank you Moritz, Briaan, Bianca and all the team, I really was very happy and made many friends who became family. If you're thinking of visiting CPT, please come to Villa Viva, I'd definitely recommend it.

I'm forever grateful that I could volunteer at Villa Viva! This truly is a place of togetherness. Every guest leaves with a big smile and I felt so happy to contribute to that. Cape Town - as beautiful as it is - had to grow on me, but Villa Viva felt like home from day 1. If you volunteer at Villa Viva expect to wake up to amazing views, meet beautiful souls, become part of a family, expect teamwork, expect to dance to amapiano, to discover the 'hidden' treasures of CT, to hike, cry, laugh and fill your heart with love.

Thank you Villa Viva fam for this opportunity <3

This is by far the most greatest experience in my life! It was my first time being a volunteer and it was very amazing . I met so many interesting people from different countries while working at VillaViva's bar. Villaviva taught me how to make coffee, prepare breakfast and I also got to travel around and experience Capetown famous attractions, the place is in close proximity to many famous tourist attractions, I highly recommend VillaViva to anyone from any country whose interested in volunteering. Big Shout out to Moritz, Brian and the entire VillaViva family, they are very amazing people :)

My two months at Villa Viva were incredible! I felt at home from day one. The whole hostel team is super friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere is light and relaxed and Moritz and Brian are always attentive, taking care of us and supporting all activities. I was also able to learn a little more about Viva Con Agua and feel part of this super social project that helps so many people to have access to clean water and decent sanitary conditions. I am very grateful for this experience and I will definitely be returning to Villa Viva soon!!

Yolle was the kind of Volunteer you wish for. Always present, always helpful, going the extra mile and making a difference. We can't thank her enough for all the awesome things she did. From Bar work to social media. She covered a lot and left her signature for ever with creating all the room names and creating the QR Codes for it.

Thank you Yolle and we are looking forward to see you again some day. Best Wishes for your future.



My experience with Villa Viva was amazing, from start to finish. Villa Viva is a place of open minds, genuine love for others and adventures. I learned a lot about life in a community, which lead me to learn about myself as well on a personnal level. You will never feel alone or left out over there. I'm thankful for every day that I spent in this home, for every friendships that I made. The staff is full of good hearted and fun people. When they say they are family, they actually mean it and I can't thank Moritz enough for welcoming me in
