Urban Hive Backpackers
We have recently taken over one of the most beautiful Victorian style heritage buildings for our Cape Town hostel for backpackers. The blue and white striped iconic building is one the most photogenic landmarks, boasting a 180° street view of the ever buzzing Long street from one of our panoramic balconies. We have put a lot of effort into breathing new life into the building, by creating a hostel, with up-cycled old pallets and wood to create a rustic feeling to match the warm ambiance for you as a backpacker. We have done a lot of DIY projects at the hostel and we are very proud of having succeeded in saving and preserving a unique piece of history that this Cape Town building in Long street stand out as.
