  • The location of this hostel is perfect - right in the lively Long Street. We stayed in a double room, and it was nicely decorated, clean and very spacious. The rooftop area and bar is just awesome and gives good views of the city. A good place to stay in Cape Town :)

  • Great experience at the Penthouse for our 1st days in South Africa, The roof bar allows to meet people, nice music & cheap beers. Location is well as the street is animated, close to sites. Friendly staff helped us to choose our activities. Room was nice, but could have coat racks to help tidy clothes.

  • I had intended to stay for a week at this hostel, but after getting "the tour," I changed it to one night only. The place was FILTHY. There were dishes left in the sink at night that were still there in the morning, the bathrooms were filled with wadded up towels and dirt. And it reeked of mildew. When I told the staff I was leaving because of cleanliness issues, they responded with, "Oh, the mildew smell?" and just shrugged as if they had heard it many times and didn't care.

  • Great location, friendly staff. Only issue was that our room was right next to the laundry room, which seems to be available to use at all hours. Although that may be convenient for staff and other guests, we were woken up every morning at 6am or earlier by people doing laundry and talking.
