Property Information:

One World lodge is Cape Town's smallest budget accomodation self catering lodge. With just 3 rooms (one double en-suite with an extra single bed-(ideal for families!) and 1 double and a 4 bed dorm) this is a really chilled and homely spot. Set in a beautiful Victorian building, upstairs from Long Street's original budget overland and travel Centre (One World Travel Centre), and with views of Table Mountain and Long Street this is a prime setting for your stay in Cape Town.

This comfortable lodge is ideal for couples, groups or families wanting affordable accomodation in a peaceful and comfortable setting. There is a kitchenette(for self catering), lounge, dining room and huge balcony for watching the comings and goings up and down Long Street. Right next door is the landmark Long Street swimming pool and Turkish baths, ideal for an early morning swim or afternoon sauna!.

    We really enjoyed our stay. Great location, directly on Long Street but not loud at all. Above that, Matt, the owner, is such a cool guy! I hope you guys make sure, this hostel is booked out! ;-)
