“Superb location”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

This is a good place with a superb location. Perhaps the only hostel in the world with their on ATM? (Though not always loaded with money) The lift has its own life, charming..Perhaps not cosiest place, but high capacity.

Entrance a bit weird with the elevator and all, but you'll get used to it. But once your on the 6th floor, another world is there. Nice welcome, free wifi, great lounge, rooftop and bar and easy to make friends to party with. Beds in de 22p room, perfect!

A block out of the center of long, penthouse provides a relaxing atmosphere and access to one of cape towns many party scenes. The staff live and work among guests creating an environment that enables you want to get the scope on all the local happenings. Facilities are clean, rooftop bar is popping, and the value is unmatched. Would definitely book here again.

Penthouse on Long was an excellent stay. The staff as well as the differently decorated rooms and the roof bar made it a special place. I stayed there every weekend of my two month stay in Cape Town and would go back any time! I've met a lot of great people there during my stay, and miss every second of it. The location is at walking distance from bars, restaurant, shops as well as the waterfront, and the staff was always up for a laugh. I especially loved the BBQ evenings on the roof, and hope these are still going!
There is also a self-service kitchen, tv-area and internet access.

There isn't a thing I can fault about this place. It's located very conveniently, being right in the city centre, so it's close to the train station and close to the night club scene. The management and staff were great - very warm and welcoming. Bathrooms and showers were flawless. The real appeal of the place is the roof top bar - always busy, with plenty of other guests, and especially great when the weather's good. I'll definitely be back when I get the chance.

Great stay! Fun bar nights and great location. Good tours available. A nice relaxing tv room is great after a long day. Walking distance to the bars and waterfront. I would stay there again in a heart beat.

I stayed here the last 2 nights of a 3 week vacation in South Africa. The facility was centrally located, close to transit, clean, affordable and had a great self-serve kitchen. There was a small library room and separate tv room that also had a computer with internet access. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
