Travellers' Choice
Altona’s biggest advantage is its location. The accommodation offered is at ‘entry level’ and we frequently refer to it as ‘two steps up from a Backpackers’. We offer comfortable and clean surroundings. The house, having 13 bedrooms (8 with Private Bathrooms and 5 using Communal Bathrooms), is ideal for small groups. Historically it has been very popular and fits the pockets of International travellers who seeks budget accommodation without having to compromise their privacy.

I have been a visitor to Altona Lodge from Australia for the past 7 years. Staff are so friendly and i now feel like part of the establishment Location is great with the MyCiti bus a 3 min walk away. The V&A within walking distance. There is also a very nice café two streets away if you don't want breakfast at the Lodge

Stayed on my return back to Cape Town for a couple of nights & for me the location was perfect - room - cleanliness staff couldn't be any better - well done to everyone here for providing such a lovely place to stay. Should I return to Cape Town at any point - I will stay again.

Although our visit ended before it started, meeting Peter was an absolute pleasure. Excellent service is the name of the game and he will truly go the extra mile. The guesthouse is situated walking distance from Greenpoint Stadium which makes it ideal.

I had a lovely stay in this cosy lodge at Green Point. There is a warm feel, fast Wi-Fi and it is in a secure and quiet street in Cape Town. Rooms were clean and I had a television, a safe and also lots of maps/tourist information was available. A great place to choose.

A super experience, friendly helpful staff and the lodge is extremely well run. I have stayed at many SA locations over the past 16 years but this beats the lot in so many ways. This has been my second visit and guess what, I've already booked up for my next visit in January 2021!!!
