My first experience of South Africa was shared with the Penthouse family, I'd been booked to stay 3 days and ended up spending 3 months in the company of the fantastically friendly and overly helpful staff of Penthouse On Long. The hostel provides a great blend of a warm welcome, easy and great nightlife almost always going on collective nights out after a night and day spent on the rooftop bar.
Penthouse provided me with not only a great base from which to explore, but also actively engages in sharing aspects of local culture (not to mention the Friday Braai's).Ultimately it's one of very few hostels I've stayed in that i still wish I was at, daily.
