I've stayed extensive periods at all the backpackers in Long street and they're all unique, but Penthouse on Long is definitely my favorite one and by far the best value for money.. The structure and the height of the property offers the best of both worlds, whether your up for an epic party or just feel like chilling out and recovering without a loud noise pounding through your ears and the never-ending hustle and bustle of the street that never sleeps.. ..
It's a gigantic Loft apartment entailing a huge lounge with a big-screen TV showing a full satellite dish bouquet, breakfast tables, free computer facilities with lightning fast wifi, a wide fully equipped kitchen with free coffee and free complimentary breakfast between 7am-9am..
As you move further into the building you will find a diverse range of private ablution facilities, giving you the option to take a nice long bath or a quick steaming shower without waiting for it, no matter how busy they are, there are enough facilities to cater for everyone's busy schedules..
The dorms and rooms are enormous, they are bigger than any of the other places I've stayed at and they are well ventilated/air-conditioned.. As you move past the rooms all the way down the corridors you will find a lounge with a library where you can have your Zen time before the party starts.. As you walk up the stairs leading to their rooftop that's close to the size of a rugby-field, you will find a fully equipped bar with a pool table, huge chill area with sofas, tables and chairs everywhere, decorated with a fair amount of flowering plants and a small nursery as you are enjoying a 360° panoramic view over the heart of The Mother City..
Penthouse on long is really where its at, with Dj's and events happening almost every weekend, the management and staff are professional, friendly and the most generous people I have stayed with as a backpacker.. I really felt at home and the people they attract are all interesting and diverse homeys from all walks of life from all over the planet.. If you cannot find your happy place when staying here then you wont find it anywhere else..
Enjoy your stay and travel safely..
