The rooms were ok, so were the showers and the kitchen. Nothing great, just ok. There were a lot of locals hanging out there, so it was very noisy as well as hard to get in Contact with the other travelers. Good location though, but I'm sure there are better (abd cheaper) hostels in the area.

Date of stay: November 2017
Trip type: Travelled solo

Friendly staff on arrive, free off road parking with a gate at night. We had a private room which had everything we needed. The staff were helpful with planning out our next few days. Only down side was no breakfast on offer. Apart from that a really good place

Really enjoyed my stay at Lungile! Great staff and comfortable beds in the dorms. Did the free walking tour through Port Elizabeth, which showed different sides of the city. Also a nice bar area with a pool table.

I have stayed for two days in a dorm in Lungile. The beds were comfortable and the sanitary was clean. It was also fine to have good Wifi in the general room. The employees were very kind and gave me good advice about what to do in Port-Elizabeth. I enjoyed my stay.
