Everything worked out. Nice and safe place to be. Communication before and while stay with management and staff was also very good. Breakfast good value. Any requests were done quickly. Was a perfect stay!

Felt like 45 years younger
Very friendly people, felt accepted , had good conversation
Also felt save there having in mind the overall paranoia or isn't it paranoia? Was warned to be in
Cape Town on my own by freinds

Hi ingeo322

Hostels often do that to people, we're just glad it was our one that made you feel young.

Thank you for the kind review and we hope to see you at Ashanti in the future.

Ashanti Lodge Green Point is an excellent choice for young or solo travelers and offers both single/double rooms and communal hostel rooms. The decor is modern and light, and the beds are comfortable.
Some of the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, but otherwise the communal bathrooms are clean and neat and still to a degree private - the showers are individual showers that are in a closed 'room' with a door, so it's not like gym showers or 'normal' communal showers.
Ashanti has a small communal kitchen that can be used for self-catering. The fridge is also communal (no freezer), and space can be a bit of an issue, but people respect your stuff and I had no cases of food being taken or anything like that. Breakfast can be ordered for extra cost, but if you buy food yourself, the kitchen is equipped with a stove and microwave. The kitchen also has a small table where you can sit and eat, or alternatively you can sit outside in one of three areas - the front porch, the uppder deck or the pool area.
There is a computer for use in the communal room (I didn't inquire as to the cost), but wifi is available throughout the hostel, the signal is stronger in some areas and weaker in others.
Note: This lodge is not wheelchair compatible! There are a lot of stairs, and the stairs are all outside. Even to get to the second floor you have to take one of two outside staircases. This can be slippery when wet.
The lodge has partial sea view (room 18 and upper 'stoep'). It's central location ensures that you are close to many of the hotspots and public transport system. The Hop-on, Hop-off bus stops are also located within walking distance, and tickets are available at Ashanti. Other excursions can also be booked from Ashanti's counter.
Parking spots are limited and they are not behind fenced areas, so it basically amounts to street parking. It is right off the main street, so not a lot of traffic (foot or road) in the area. however, it is recommended that you not leave any valuables in plain sight. There are no shaded parkings available.
Overall the lodge was clean and cleaning staff regularly visited the rooms. The rooms are not really soundproof, so you can sometimes hear your neighbours when talking loudly or laughing. So if you are a light / early sleeper, have this in mind. No smoking is allowed in the rooms, but outside is allowed. Note that if you get room 18, people will tend to smoke right outside your window and 'kuier' there into the early hours.

Room Tip: Towels, linen, small TV and safe are equipped in the double rooms. I don't know about the hostel...

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.

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.
