Our famous hostel is situated right in the middle of the CBD, in the entertainment precinct of Cape Town. We have been described as 'The Soul of Long Street' (Coast to Coast). The hostel is contained in a lovely 19th Century building, at the quieter South-West end of the street, with a sunny and leafy courtyard, fantastic balconies with views onto Signal Hill and the busy streets below. We are an 'old-school' hostel and differentiate ourselves from the new generation of 'poshtels'. We are all about communalism and laid back fun and adventure. We share meals and outings together, we party together (often!!!) and we treat guests and staff alike as part of our weird and wonderful family. It is a large hostel sleeping up to 80 guests and there is never a dull moment or a day without adventure. Just remember to bring your passport with you! We take the safety and security of our guests very seriously and for that reason we must insist on ALL guests presenting valid passports to check in.
