Come and stay with us in our family run backpackers on viby Long Street, right in the heart of all the fun & walking distance from everything you will need. Once a dreary office, the entire level now provides an uber-cool living space for the owners and a bunch of other lovely souls. Each space is individually treated to quirky design elements and a heady use of color, so you're spoilt for choice.We offer a full range of accommodation from dorms to ensuite doubles and family rooms. All our rooms are individually decorated and airconditioned. We are very women friendly with a dedicated girls only dorm with full length mirrors and hair dryers. Choose from the Africa room strewn with leopard print cushions, Hearts (Girls Only, yeah), Cosmos and Moroccan dorms - as well as bathrooms a plenty. (But if you and your, um... friend!!, require a little gypsy chic beneath the sheets then try out the double en suites, Purple Nights, Red & White stars and The Orange room. We have 80 beds in total. A fully equipped (gas stove) open plan kitchen, TV lounge with DSTV satellite, a reading lounge with a communal book exchange & library and our own cityscape Rooftop Bar and entertainment area with a secret garden where you can join a party at night or catch a tan without the sand. There's complimentary tea & coffee as well as 10Mbps internet over WiFi that will cater for your internet surfing needs as well as an in-house ATM for your safety & convenience. Our geysers run on solar & heatpumps, the organic scrap food goes in the compost, glass, cans & paper goes into recycling. Traditionally, Tuesday nights are movie nights on the Rooftop and then Friday is BBQ Braai Day where we sizzle steaks into the sunset, but you never know what can happen on the Rooftop...Our home chef prepares a variety of breakfasts from cereals, fry ups and smoothies which are served Tuesday - Sunday. Daily dinners can be booked through reception. ...and then there's the Boogie Bus offering in-house tours as well as airport transfers.We are looking forward to receive you with a warm and friendly welcome in the Mother City at our 24/7 reception & tour desk.
