The positive: friendly staff and in Long Street if like the CT party area. But that is about it. The negative: Run down hostel, The rooms were dirty, the bathrooms had fungus on their walls and the security was poor.

Good location but very noisy and kind of dark. Good for travelers who want the club scene of Cape Town and don't have expectations on cleanliness. The staff, however, was excellent and very helpful!


Very friendly staff, great location with many ars, Cafes & shops around. MyCity bus stop (e.g. to Camps Bay) a few steps from the hostel. A bit noisy at night but doable. Great value for money & I would definitely come back.
