Excellent central location close to bars and restaurants, bar with great view of city, friendly and helpful staff, good clean facilties
There was a hiccup with my friends airport pick up - however my airport pick up went without a problem so it was hopefully just a fluke.
The location is great. It is situated quite in the center, near all the facilities and where the city tour buses pass next to. The staff was quite nice, the food served was very good and quite affordable to pay. The room was comfortable and of a good price.
Sometimes it was noisy due to the young people all around, but not disturbing.
Loved the atmosphere, the vibe. I made some good friends. Unforgettable moments at Penthouse on Long.
Kitchen is well equipped. Great location and extremely helpful staff.
Close proximity to the city centre and easy access to sights such as Table Mountain, the Lion's Head, and the harbour for visiting Robben Island.
Friendly and helpful staff. The rooftop bar was awesome
The towels in the bathrooms were dirty
Kitchen, rooftop bar and wifi were great helpful staff good wifi connection
Had 4 nights, private room- room wasn't cleaned at any point.
The staff is very welcoming and makes you feel like home. The rooms are nicely decorated and offer all the comfort you need, including a private bathroom. There is a great WIFI connection and a room to watch TV and read. It is ideally located in Long Street, where you'll find a lot of restaurants and bars.
The breakfast is a bit late if you want to leave early (starts at 7:30). One lamp was broken in the room.
we stayed here for 5 nights in the morocco room....staff was really helpfull and nice...locaiton is good..near by big markets good restaurants and a big square for shopping for presents...hostel was clear and a wonderful upstair bar is by table mountain and downtown wiew...so near to bus station and train station...at least good value for money
there is always some dengerous people around teh enter of the hostel gate..we afraid to get hostel nights..wi fi is really poor..toilets and bathrooms is weak..only 4 toilet and bathroom is nor enough for this big hostel..there is a poor sign on the buildin..its really hard to find the hostel..
-located in down town. -room with air conditioner. -a big hostel with lots of backpackers and travelers. -you can pay and order breakfast in the morning. -staff are very nice.
-not safe when you go out alone in the night. -it's annoying when you park your car at night downstairs. Fake parking guys ask for money. But the true is, after 5pm, parking is free. -the restaurant in downtown are expensive. -too many people to share the toilets, sometimes the toilets are dirty.
Fantastic place to stay, staff are great and friendly made you fell welcome. Up stairs bar is good with amazing views of Table Mountain, a nice place to relax and socialise with other traveller's.
Elevators did not work.
friendly, helpful staff great location cooking facilities and amenities
beds and towels not changed rickety elevator parking not the best
The friendly staff, and the amazing roof top bar!
Everything was exactly as expected, and we enjoyed our stay very much!
Nice staff, free coffee and tea, nice room, clean and confortable facilities and halls, chairs and books to relax. The fact that the hostel is no smoking is a very good point! A lot of useful information about day trips and tours.
In the morning you realize that 4 or 5 showers is not enough when the hostel is full and you are in a hurry :) :) The distance between bunk beds is very small and you risk to hit your head when you wake up. Is difficult to find the hostel (as is situated at the top of a high building, but there are no many signs about on the first floor).
The location was very convenient.
We stayed here twice - the first time for 2 nights in the "purple room." It's right next to the laundry room so can be loud at times. It is also close to the kitchen where everyone apparently likes to hang out and throw dishes in the sink very loudly at all hours of the night. The shower head in this private room was rusty and just felt dirty.
Good hostel. Secure. Great location.
