  • Description

    Description

    Our famous hostel is situated right in the middle of the CBD in the entertainment precinct of Cape Town. We have been described as 'the soul of the Street' - and we hope that's a good thing!!?? Our hostel is a lovely old building at the top end of the street with a sunny and leafy courtyard, fantastic balconies with views onto signal hill and the busy streets. We are an 'old-school' hostel and differentiate ourselves from the new generation of 'poshtels'. We are all about communalism and laid back fun and adventure. We share meals and outings together, we party together (often!!!) and we treat guests and staff alike as party of our weird and wonderful family. It is a large hostel sleeping up to 80 guests and there is never a dull moment or a day without adventure.
