The hostel is located in the heart of Cape Town, in the middle of Long Street. Which makes it really easy to get around, whether you wanna go to the beach, climb Table mountain or do anything else this amazing city has to offer!
The hostel has a great atmosphere!! All the rooms are painted and decorated in different themes, there is a huge kitchen where you can find anything you need, a chilled out TV-lounge, nice showers where there is always warm water, a reading area with couches and lots of books to borrow. And of course there is the roof top bar, my favorite place! It has an amazing view over the hole city, you can even see Lionshead and Table mountain. During the day it's a great place to chill out and in the evenings it's THE place to be :) whether you want a relaxed evening with a few drinks or a big night out! There are always lots of people there, the cheapest drinks you can find in Long Street, cool music and some awesome bartenders.
My absolute favorite thing, what made Penthouse on Long the best hostel to me, is the staff! They are so helpful, if there is anything you need you can be sure they will go ou of theire way to help you. It is a wonderfull goup of people and they take care of you like your family! I ended up staying at Penthouse every weekend while I was working as a volunteer, and I must say I feelt much more welcome and at home there than I did at my host family. Thank you all for everythig, my stay would not have been the same without you!!
So if you are every in Cape Town stop by the Penthouse on Long and I am sure you will love it :)
Ps: Do not forget to try the roof top braai on Fridays, it's a South African style barbeque with lots of amazing food!!
