    Love love this hostel! Staff were amazing and so kind. Basey (the dog) was so friendly! Rooms were great and great location. Right on the end of long street. Long street was awesome and so much to do. Best part was all the food to eat! (Very VEGAN FRIENDLY) I highly recommend staying at this hostel. No complaints :)

    Great hostel and very friendly staff from the moment you arrive. It was very quiet while I was there due to the time of year but the facilities are there for hosting a great time. I stayed in a private room and it was very clean and tidy. Close to local shops for your needs and about 20 mins walk to the V&A waterfront.

    I enjoyed this plAce rooms are big enough. Balcony is coool. Overall a really dope spot. I might some wonderful ladies from lesotho that were traveling. It’s a good spot for a solo traveler. It also is right below long street which is convenient. Would be VERY careful after dark.

    Great atmosphere on the rooftop terrace makes up for the dodgy lift, cramped rooms, and noisy location. It did not make up for the bed bug bites I came away with...

    This hostel was full with locals, only a few international backpackers. Many local men staying here who look at you in a way and say things to you that dont make you feel safe to share a dorm with men like that. The common area on the roof felt like i was invading in their livingroom. as a foreign girl walking around felt really uncomforable and full of annoying men harassing.

    Great staff, good location. But we do missed a few things: fan, since the streets around the hostel are really busy, we didn’t want to sleep with the window open because of all the noise. A fan to keep the temperature down would have been nice. The elevator was not working really well. It stopped at every level, or didn’t go up/down at all. Pretty annoying. Maybe the manager could put some pressure on the building owner to fix it. The bathrooms could be cleaned more often.
