    The hostel had good wifi and comfortable beds! The best part of the stay though was the staff and their ability to make you feel like Port Elizabeth was your home away from home. If I had any questions the staff was there to help....More

    Lungile is an average hostel with regards to room size, cleanliness (not dirty or mouldy in any way, but it's a hostel, so you don't expect the Ritz) and the 40 Rand breakfast (cereal and toast with jam etc). But the staff is really friendly,...More

    I am an ex restauranteur and Food and beverage manager and I've worked in hotels with 4 and 5 Star awards and this place deserves a 2 Star. It's not worth the money. Stay somewhere else. It's very noisy, not very clean so don't waste...More

    As a self proclaimed ex restaurateur and a former hotel employee one would expect that you would know not to compare hostel standards with that of a hotel. For future reference, book a hotel instead of a hostel. Regards, Lungile management
