Property Description

For the Cheapest beer on Long Street & a Unforgettable Experience, you've found the right place!!

'If Long Street is the heart of Cape Town, then Long Street Backpackers is
the soul, overflowing with creative energy and positive vibes.' -
Coast to Coast Backpackers' Guide.

We were established in 1993, the first hostel on Long Street. Ever since then it has been our pleasure to offer a sociable, fun atmosphere to our guests. Our free vegetable potjie (traditional stew), every Sunday evening, should not be missed.

We have a large, self service kitchen, poolroom, bar, TV room with satellite TV and two big balconies to watch the world go by. Our dorms range from two beds to a maximum of 10 beds. We also have single, double or twin rooms. We offer 5 % discount for VIP Members.

We can arrange all day tours,garden route tours, adventure tours, safari's, overland trips, car rental, Baz Bus tickets and much much more from our travel desk.

'Long known as party central for people passing through, its ideal for singleton travelers wanting to make friends as well as those who love nothing more than saving a few shekels on their bed to spend in the bar.' - Time Out Cape Town 2010

Come experience the wine, waves and nightlife in the midst of all the activity in center city Cape Town. The energetic and social atmosphere Long Street Backpackers promotes will either over-stimulate or help to fulfill your Cape Town expectations. But be assured, the attention to safety and amenities made available will help to ease the mind. In any case, we're not going to tell you Long Street Backpackers is the best place to stay, come on in for a drink at our fully stocked bar and you can tell us.

Long Street Backpackers is the heart of Cape Town's nightlife with 24h surveillance. We are the only hostel in Cape Town that has a surveillance camera right on our doorstep! It's the center of all backpacking activity. Long Street is to Cape Town what King's Cross is to Sydney or Khoisan Rd is to Bangkok. We are in the city center and therefore within walking distance of everything that you would need. Long Street is the busiest party street in Cape Town, ask anybody! Even though we are in the city center, you wouldn't know it sitting (or sunbathing!) in our sunny flower filled court yard.


WE DO NOT HAVE 24HOUR RECEPTION. WE ARE OPEN FROM 8AM UNTIL 12PM.

Note that reception is closed on Sundays between 13:00 and 16:00.

**Please note only guests with valid passports and or HISA membership cards will be allowed to check in**

    Amazing place! The general manager, Garreth, was phenomenal and I met quite a few amazing peiple during my time there. Quite a few of the volunteer employees have been there for months because they love the vibe and can't see themselves leaving. The location is just phenomenal - Long Street is an awesome street for partying and the vibe is very unique. If you are looking for sleep though, this may not be the best spot for you.

    What a wonderful place! This was my first stop on my trip to South Africa and I couldn’t have asked for a better one as a solo traveller. The staff were very welcoming and super helpful in booking cage diving and other activities. I would say it’s very much a social and party place though so if you are looking for peace and quiet this perhaps isn’t the one for you. On the other hand if you want to meet great people from all over the world and destroy them at beer pong then look no further!

    Its great to meet people as there is always something going on at the bar/reception. Everything is a little ran down, which kind of gives it character. Only the beds could've been a little nicer as they were really old. Also I got bed bugs in room 6. When I told the girl that was working that day she doubted that it was bedbugs as my bites didn't look it(I even had a pic of 1 on the bed, but as per her you can't see them). After further research I can be sure that it was though. Moved beds.
