There was no Wi-Fi in the room, but you could use the computer/Wi-Fi at the hostel. The party downstairs is quite loud - it would keep anyone sleeping in the living room awake, but you could hardly hear it in the bedroom.
The room was ideally located, clean, a good size, comfortable and really cute. The hostel staff were really helpful at making reservations and delivering messages.
The noise from the street and surrounding restaurants and clubs can keep you awake. However, we stayed in apartment 2. When the bedroom door was closed the noise did not bother us at all.
The staff were extremely helpful. The aparment is located in the vibey Long street.
Door locks were so hard to get locked and unlocked - I mean ridiculously so which isn't all that good late at night down a side alley in Cape Town If you like reggae music (which I do!!) you'll enjoy the free music
Location was great for hanging out in Cape Town's downtown nightspots Interior was cool/chic Staff at the hotel part were so helpful
As good as the nightlife is it is also at times never ending. Very loud and it keeps going through the night – every night. If you are a sensitive sleeper it will drive you bonkers
Location, location, location. In the centre of the hassle and buzzle of Long street. Lots of restaurants and night life. Good view of Long street.
Cleanliness - funky style ....
The noise from long street is really bad, the music goes on till 4 am and sleep is really difficult. This flat would suit younger people.
the flat was great, location not so good
VERY noisy, with Long Street Café & others bars/clubs/pubs very close by.
Great location in downtown area
It's ON long street, above a buzzing bar and restaurant, so it's loud! That being said, there is a great energy as vibe and unlimited choice of bars, coffee shops and places to eat within a stones throw. Perfect for young people who don't plan on sleeping a huge amount. Not right for people looking for a 'relaxing' getaway. But light, airy, nicely decorated, very comfortable and lots of fun!!
Parking can be a problem if you didn't budget for the pay-meter or if you cant find any near by...
We liked the view/buzz of Long street and it's a nice central point to travel from and to...
On long street - so a bit noisy in the evening
On Long street - easy access to all restaurants
No properly cleaned ....dirty dishes, towels, rubbish from previous occupants still there
Aircon not working, and very hot shower door broken not very well cleaned something stinky somewhere...
Nice beds Well decorated
The location was very bad as it was situated right above a club and it wasn't sound proof. The clubs' tables and chairs with customers were infront of the entrance and blocked it totally. I was also disappointed that there was not coffee and tea faciclities left out for us, especially as we only stayed for one night.
too much noise in the morning
good place for the party
No reception, having to walk to the hotel for check in, no prior notice Parking is a challenge Too nousy for business travel - could not sleep. Music going till 4am
Its a nice viby location, but poor choice on my side for business travel - too noisy
The old tv which i struggled to get to work. No DSTV Bedroom claustrophobic Extreme heat in the lounge area Old blackened iron Big stand alone fan in the lounge which doesnt function Entrance to apartment blocked by patrons using the pub next door
Aircon in the room Bed
I was very disappointed with this accommodation. For the price charged, it is really not worth it. I don't understand how it got such a good rating if I look at all the complaints here. Just wish I read it prior to booking the accommodation. It is situated right on the road in Long street, you have to push through people sitting outside a bar to get to the door. The staircase is narrow - which is ok, but difficult with bags. The actual apartment is nicely laid out. But the minute we were inside, we could here the thumping music coming from the bar downstairs. In fact, the one room has a whole in the floor, which make the music super loud. We checked in on a Wednesday night, and still the music went on until 2:30 in the morning. It is impossible to sleep. The following night was the same. Over and above that, the place is not completely clean. There were cockroaches in the bathroom and the couches were very grubby and full of stains. The beds were clean. There was no double adapter for the hairdryer. Parking is also a huge problem. You have to park about a block and a half away, at a nearby garage. Then you have to walk with your suitcase and bags through a very busy street to get to the flat. The whole street is lined with bars and nightclubs, so the noise level (even after the downstairs bar closed) remains high. The apartment also smells of smoke from the downstairs bar. If you are into bars, and will stay out late, and is just looking for a place to sleep, then this is fine. But for the price, I would rather look at a backpackers. Definitely not for families or corporate/social travel.
The layout of the flat is nice
No free W-Lan, Very (extremely) noisy on Fri and Sat, only for nighthoppers and clubbers
Big, spacey, central
it gets quite noisy but we knew this. There is a hole in the floor board of the twin bedroom which lets more noise up from the bar below. the double room was quieter.
Location good, apartment was simple and everything we needed
