Old Migrant Hostels are the male dormitories built in 1969 to house Langa's migrant workers. Some of the hostels have since been renovated into family apartments alongside newer housing projects. From Washington St, head south on Jungle Walk. One block past Rhodes St, take a right on the unnamed road. If you stop at the intersection near the souvenir and craft stalls, you can easily find someone to take you into their house and show you the cramped living conditions of the updated family apartments.
