I stayed at penthouse for almost two weeks, and i enjoyed my stay so much. It's a bit tricky to find, because the sign on the street isn't too big, but once you found the kiosk that's right next to the door, it's all fine. all the people who work there are very friendly, so helpful and entertaining and there's always a very good atmosphere (Jommy playing the guitar for example). There was all the time something going on at the roof top bar (that rooftop has an amazing view and if you're keen you can play pool there) and the rooms are well sized and the bathrooms are clean. It's located on Long Street, the perfect place to stay, there are all the bars and clubs and restaurants next to it, and i felt very save there. The kitchen had all the supplies you need for cooking. Also there was a huge tv room with couches and a nice chill out area for everyone. It was a bit cold in the dorm due to an air condition, that you can easily turn off if you find it;) The lift wasn't always working, so sometimes you had to walk down one floor to cacth it from there. What I found quite strange were the cameras in the hallways or the chill out area. But apart from that it was just great! I meat so many amazing people there that i really miss a lot already! anyway I guess it's the place to stay when you're in Cape Town and I was very very happy that I decided to go there.
