We were only staying in PE for the night, booked this as it was close to airport, only 5 minute drive, very easy to find. However we arrived during a blackout (very common, most areas have a few hours a week of no electric as the grid cannot supply to everywhere) and there were no lights what so ever in the car park area, or on the steps and walk up to the hostel, it was very uncomfortable and felt a bit scary, was quite difficult to even find the door. Hostel needs emergency lighting!
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff are wonderful and there is so much to do. Plan to stay for a few days. This place is good!
The best about this hostel is the staff, they are friendly, helpful and even offer you a personalized city tour as well as a cheap ride to the airport. The location is great for young people and backpackers!

We booked a tent and hoped that there would be a tent to sleep, but we only booked for camping, that is a bit confusing if you book via hostelworld. Fortunately, the staff was pretty cool and found a tent somewhere in the hostel and builded it up for us. They also gave us some free Savanna even though it was our fault.

Perfect for a night, has a grand large front room and a nice pool, just a short walk away from the beachfront. Great staff. Would stay there again.
Enjoyed my stay there very munch. Had a longer travel through SA, so I CAN compare: The staff is really, really nice and put much effort in organising your trips. Cleanliness comparable good. Regularaly Braais organised by the staff free to join.
Great place! Staff was awesome. Loved staying here.
The dorm was dirty. Toilet and beds sheets were dirty. The place is not really close to anything else but a couple of restaurants: no shopping, no market to buy food from etc so u need a car. They also had rented the facilities for a local birthday party, and there was around 30-40 people partying who were not staying at the lodge.
Had a good stay here, free wifi, nice kitchen, good vibe and close to a lot of places like the beach or nightlife. Would stay again.
Had a great stay at Longile! Great atmosphere to meet other travelers and the staff was very helpful!
OK, for me PE does not have to offer that much, so location is not bad-bad.. the city is just not my favourite. but this backpacker seems to be quite unorganised and was not the cleanest i've ever been. quite a lot of beds in one room and the bunk beds don not have much space in between. staff is friendly and pool and outside area nice.
Nice staff, good location. Only the bed clothing in the double bed room was a bit greasy.
Lungile is a safe hostel, very close to the beach and restaurants. Car parking inside the gate, ensuite showers and toilets, a good furnitured kitchen and free wifi are positive points. Negative may be that the music was loud till late, the matrasses are thin and some area's hadnt seen cleaning materials in a while. Furthermore, on the evening I was there, there was not much interaction between fellow travellers.
Nice hostel located close the beach and in easy walking distance of a number of bars and restaurants. The room was pretty basic and smelled a bit musty, but it was comfortable and the wifi worked. It was fairly quiet when we were there so we did not meet many other travelers, but the staff and owner were friendly and helpful.
Really nice staff and dorms! It takes just a few minutes to the Beach
Staff was very kind and ready to help, also organizied going out in the evening. I had a private independent room with own bathroom, even if with shower in the sleeping room. Parking is available just in front of the room, in the property closed with gate. Very good location: close to the hostel you find restaurants, pubs, shops and promenade on the beach.
Great hostel with large communal space and wifi in the dorm rooms. Can't beat that! Enjoyed my one night stay.
The rooms are a little bit old. I stayed in a room with a bathroom ensuite, where lights were out. We both had a cold shower. Other than that, very nice commom area and staff was helpful when asked.
Great hostel, really good atmosphere. We stayed in a private double room which was really nice. Friendly fun staff.
They need a few opportunities to hang cloths in the bath room and a key for one of the showers. Also the button for the light are on strange places. The staff is amazing und very helpful in all belongs. Great beer and atmosphere
