Expert Review

Creative, offbeat, and great-value is the best way to describe this funky boutique backpacker enclave. Location rules here: The hotel is smack in the middle of vibrant Long Street, a strip packed with cafes, clubs, bookstores, music stores, and African art and antiques shops. Each of the thirteen en-suite rooms was decorated by a different artist who was given total freedom to interpret the space as they wished. Check out the hospital-chic Emergency Room (#4) and the Photo Booth (#11), with 3,240 photos plastered on the walls. A prime spot to meet people, it offers an authentic slice of Cape Town and its creative spirit. The communal space features a lounge bar and a balcony. While no meals are served on the premises, eateries abound along Long Street, including the street-level R-Caffe which dishes out breakfasts and lunches.
