Lungile is one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed at. The staff are incredibly nice and welcoming. There is a huge kitchen stocked with every pot and pan that you would ever need. If you stay at this hostel make sure to talk with Freddy, his is a great guy who seems to always be working the desk but loves to have conversations about anything and everything.We booked through HI Hostel and they did not have our reservations, I would book from another site.

It is near to the beach (10 min by foot), though they do have indoor swimming pool.

Very nice location, welcoming staff. Gate at the off-location cottage can close unexpectedly damaging your car.

the appearance of the place is lousy : very dirty shared bathrooms , people who are not guests enter and exit the site and cleaning the filthy kitchen.I paid in advance for 3 nights but only stayed 2 nights ; time required to get up to another location .The day I did not use WAS NOT RETURNED !Terrible place , suggest the disqualification !

I just spent a day and a night in PE and cannot tell if the hostel has a good location. But I can tell it is confortable, clean and have helpfull and friendly staff. Hihostels messed up my reservation, I emailed them to help me to sort it out but never got back from them. Thanks Vuvu and Patrick for sorting out and helping me to have a quick but very pleasure and fun stay. I highly recommend Lungile Backpackers. I will NEVER book again with Hihostels!!
