I spent here more than ten days. the place is nice and the position also at the top of long street.
the staff is kind and close to the hostel there is the turkish bath whit a covered swimming pool.
the hostel has wifi connection but you must buy credit to use it, however on long street there are lot of pub - bar which have free internet. my favourite was long street café, i spent about one hour to drink a coke while i was using the internet and nobody complained.

Really helpful and friendly staff and great location. The rooms are fairly basic but good value for money. Nice courtyard and it was possible to book wine tours from there that pick you up from the front door!

Room Tip: Dorms rooms are Ok for just sleeping in.

This Place have seen much better Times.

I stayed there for 2 nights in December. The rooms are not very clean and it is quiet noisy. The area around the Longstreet is a bit dodgy and there are many scoundrels around! So be careful where you go, especially at night.

Positive: It is "in the Heart of Cape Town"!

Perfect location directly between the bars and nightclubs on Long Street and the restaurants and shops on Kloof Street. Even a cab to the Waterfront was only about R40, which is quite okay.

The place itself had a wonderful cozy common area with a TV to unwind after an exhausting day. The staff did help out with any inquiries I had.
