          It's not too expensive, that's why it's a good place to stay a little bit in Cape town when you travel alone. But Long street is very noisy and some nights it was impossible to sleep (especially friday, saturday and sunday nights). Besides, there is...More

          It was probably one of the dodgiest backbackers I've been to in South Africa. The only reason I stayed was because the reception guy was pretty cool. Doors didn't lock well, communal showers weren't clean and music was playing loud from across the street.
