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.

BEST PLACE EVER 😎😀 One off the best places I've stayed at, best location to enjoy Capetown, clean bedrooms, clean kitchen, clean new bathrooms, amazing art work on the walls probably my best fixture of the place. Can't wait to return, thanks for hosting me.

Nothing but the best! A clean kitchen, bed rooms, bathrooms and having an ideal location are only some of the many great things about this hostel. It boasts an impressibe 3 floors with multiple rooms; each room has a unique touch. The staff will make you feel completly at home, and they will become your friends rather than workers. The common room (my favorite room) has amazing hand drawn art pieces on the wall. You can tell that a lot of time and effort has definitely gone into making this the best backpackers on Long.
