“Great backpackers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2016

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!

Room Tip: Better pillows maybe

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 roll out of bed you can have a nasty fall. If you get stuck with an upper bunk and then switch to a lower one, don't expect the used bedding to be changed on the one you switch to.

Hi carolinea129

Thank you for the review, all input helps us improve.

I am sorry to hear that the pancake mix ran out, some people just can't get enough of our pancakes :) We normally do top up the mix, you should have notified us and we would have gladly made some more.

Thanks for your input on the upper bunks, I will speak to the owners and assess our options of how we can make them safer. So far we have never had problems but there is no harm in making it even safer :)

With regards to the change in bedding, if the reception is not notified of the change in bed then the cleaning staff have no way of knowing to change the bedding as to them it just looks like the person who was on the top bunk checked out.

I am sorry to hear about your experience at Ashanti and we will be sure to try improve wherever possible.

Kind regards,
Jason

It was welcoming, affordable, conveniently located and safe place to stay while in Cape Town. Walking distance to the waterfront where the city tour buses can be reached. Public transport/buses accessible. The rooms were clean.

Reliable Wi-fi, clean bedding, clean communal, rooms are a bit small, receptionist have a smile to work on and clients should suggest what place to visit to guest etc. there is television with vast channel to choose from, a clean swimming pool and is situated in a good neighborhood.
