We arrived as a big group and were shown such warmth when checking in. The overall state of the lodge was pleasing to the eye and very clean. Ashanti Lodge will most certainly be seeing me again in the future. More

My two friends and I had a great stay in the 3-bed room. It was simple, but clean and the location in the Green Point neighborhood was in a useful location center to many of our activities. It would have been nice to have our own private bathroom, but I knew that it was a shared bathroom when I made the reservation. The best part of our stay here was the amazing staff at this place who gave us invaluable tips and suggestions for making our stay in Cape Town awesome.
Thank you for the kind review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the input.
You are always welcome at Ashanti and we hope to see you again.
Basic things ok, I didnt like that smoking was allowed next to open dormitory window and smoke came inside. Friendly staff, butvarious knowledge about sight seeings. I was dissopointed when I send somee-mails before arrival but didnt get any answer.
Hi Tuomo H
Thank you for your review, all input helps us improve and we will be sure to take your input into consideration.
With regards to the emails, we responded to your request for a transfer but that is the only email we got from you.
The reception was solemn. We were frustrated after going through the process of checking in at the Ashanti Gardens instead of Greenpoint only to find out our bookin was actually in Green Point. We were not in the best mood and the receptionist was tolerant but also not very helpful. The dorm rooms were disappointing and we struggled to get in and out with the strange combination lock that was too low on the door.
We are sorry that you went to the wrong property and had to do the check-in process twice due to this.
With regards to the dorms, having a combination door code is industry standard and we do this for our guests own safety and convenience.
Dorm was roomy and bed comfortable with room to store luggage underneath the bed which you could lock with your own padlock. Staff friendly though not exactly willingly helpful in terms of where to get food, what to do etc. A nice stay overall.
Thank you for the review, all feedback helps us improve.
We are glad you enjoyed the room and are sorry the staff were not as helpful as they should have been. We pride ourselves in our friendliness and helpfulness so will definitely chat to the staff to rectify the matter.
We hope to see you again one day.
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 as my food was overcooked but it was really cheap.
Thank you for the review, all input helps us improve.
We are glad you enjoyed you enjoyed your stay for the most part and will be sure to work on making our breakfast even more delicious :)
