Carnival Court Backpackers

261 Long Street, Cape Town, Western Cape


Rated as one of the top 20 party hostels in the world, Carnival Court is in the middle of all the action with lots of bars, clubs and restaurants lining the street. If you enjoy city life, this is the place to be! This grand old building has three giant floors of cosy rooms and woodwork restored to its original splendour, with a fresh and majestic feel of the interior.

From the two enormous balconies on the first and second floors, you can spy on the street life, look out over the skyline onto the slopes of Signal Hill or see the ocean above the palm trees on the other side. From late afternoon you can meet fellow travellers in our spacious buzzing bar for a drink or a game of pool or foosball.

Just outside is Cape Town's hub of activity that is Long Street. Take your pick of the bars, clubs and restaurants that line the pavement. Step out the door and into some of the city's best nightlife. Carnival Court Backpackers are five minutes walk from the famous Greenmarket Square and the Cape Town city centre.
