Stayed here for a night after my overland camping tour, had a double bed to myself with shared facilities. The bed was super comfortable and the shared facilities were really clean. Really good location, quite safe in that area and things are nearby to walk or getting an uber is really cheap as well. Had breakfast and didn't enjoy it...

We stayed at Ashanti Lodge in Green Point on the recommendation of the travel company we were about to tour with (Acacia Africa) and it was a great choice. Cheap rooms but very clean with nice facilities. Breakfast was OK (good value for money) and service from reception was fantastic. Location was good - felt safe and cheap to take...

It was my first time at a backpackers place. I had ordered a double room all to my self and it was great. I shared bathrooms with all the people upstairs but never had any issues. Bathroom, kitchen and common areas including pool were clean. The staff were especially friendly and helpful with planning out activities for my trip. They...

Hi joeyjoi5 Thank you for the kind review, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay. We are also aware of the wifi issue, unfortunately the internet standard in South Africa is still quite far behind the rest of the world. But be rest assured we try provide the highest quality standard that is available. We hope to see you...

We stayed at Ashanti Backpackers greenpoint for 5 days. The rooms and facilities are extremely clean, even though it was public holidays I saw cleaners in at least once a day - this is a big plus for me when staying at any backpackers. Furthermore the staff members are very helpful and friendly and had good suggestions as to where...

This lodge is a bit more expensive than other lodges for a dorm, but it is its money worth. It is a really clean place with a nice pool. The reception is open 24/24 and are very helpful. If you are ready to pay a bit more for more luxe then it is the place you need.

Good location for the sevens rugby game located at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town. Room was a bit small. Staff was accommodating given early check-in and late return after rugby. Overall comfortable stay.

Great place to stay. Pool and the pancake mix is a big plus! The staff was great with any assistance needed and giving tips on what is fun to do in Cape Town. Walking distance from a lot of shops and nice warm showers all the time. The choice of buying beers there while you chill was also great!

My husband and I have heard a lot about Ashanti in Cape Town and finally had the privilege of experiencing it ourselves recently. Excellent service, friendly staff, affordable rates, clean and upmarket rooms and amazing food! We would definitely recommend Ashanti Green Point and rate it 10 out of 10!

All the sterile charm of a Holiday Inn Express, but it does the job. Two odd things of note: When they say "free pancakes," they mean "free communal bowl of pancake batter but no toppings, and if it runs out before 10 a.m., too bad for you." Also, the top bunks have no safety railings, meaning that if you sleepily...
