In the heart of Long Street, Cape Town's proverbial party strip where bars and clubs would go all night if they could.
Each room is a compact yet comfortable expression of an artist's whims - from photography as wallpaper to eye boggling montages and a denim inspired place to lay your hat. Each has a shower and quality linen.
There is a small lounge in the hotel as well as a moody bar and a small courtyard for hanging out but, honestly, the playground's outside (and in your room - especially if you've checked into the Emergency Room with its nurse's outfit).
Eating and drinking
Breakfast can be eaten (it's not included) at a downstairs café but there's a veritable smörgasbord of dining opportunities from smart to street style offerings on your doorstep.
Service is efficient but can be ropy and don't expect five-star attention.
Who stays there
From gap-year travellers to the young at heart, the mix of guests all have one thing in common - a desire to experience something different without blowing the budget.
