  • All the people working at the Hostel are extremely friendly and helpful, and the location of the Hostel is excellent for somebody who loves nightlife, since all the bars and clubs are really close in Long Street. They also have plenty of trips available, that you can arrange right at the reception However, the facilities of the hostel are old and poorly mantained, and the temperature in the room and the noise from the street at night make it really difficult to sleep well.

  • It's a good location as clubs, restaurants and other hostels are within walking distance. The place is relatively clean and has it's own bar. However, I was most disappointed on my last day when I had to leave for the airport at 7am and upon returning my room key I was told I could not be given my deposit back because the office wouldn't be open until 8am. This hostel has stolen approximately 200 R from me. Do not expect a good night's rest here as well, very noisy.
