I had been traveling up the Garden route for a couple of months, ended in CPT and stayed in various places on 'LONG'.
PENTHOUSE ON LONG was by far my favorite. I was very sad to leave my last backpackers/hostel; as soon as I arrived people were inviting me out 'flamenco dancing' and to go out out 'now,now' with them! ( you will understand on arrival what NOWNOW means ).
It has a warm vibe, everyone is extremely friendly, especially BOBO aka, Boris (GERMAN) on the front desk or Steven & Franco on the roof bar.
As a lone traveller, you will never be short of people to explore Table mountain, Cycle to chapman's peak or go Skydiving with. I met a group of friend who I will remain friends with for life and I now plan on returning as soon as I can to SA.
Oh yes and the beds are comfortable, Kitchen kept clean and have a loverly laundry service!
There is beautiful viewpoint from the back roof ( smokers heaven ), where the lights illuminate the skyscrapers silhouettes against a rose light polluted night sky. 8:30 every night.
DEAR PENTHOUSE, THANK YOU :)
see you now
