    I've being staying at hostels for over 10 years and Long Street Backpackers is the coolest place I've ever visited. The atmosphere the staff (Lee, Marius, Emma, & Mike) provide to everyone is unlike anywhere else! From the moment I checked in all I saw...More

    LSB was awesome! Right on the heart of Long Street and close to everything in Cape Town, it was an adventure in itself. Great staff, awesome prices, wonderful people, as well as safe and welcoming. I know that I'll be coming back to Cape Town...More

    The hostel is super cute with its plants everywhere and different levels, nice common area and balconys. But if you want to sleep, don't book this hostel. Yes it is on long Street so it's loud in general. But I stayed a long time there...More

    Great Place to stay if you are looking for a backpack! Great Staff and interesting prices! Very interesting location 20 min walking distance from Victoria Harbour, 5 min walking distance from Bo Kaap, and quite close to green market.
