We arrived at Elements, expecting a real backpackers environment with not the best quality of rooms but we were pleasantly surprised at how nice the apartment we had was, not as one would expect for a backpackers. The owners are very nice, and they have a lovely pool and garden. We were very surprised and would definitely recommmend Elements to... More

I spend 38 days in dorm room and 3 days in single room at Elements. The dorm rooms are really small and you share them with 3 other persons (2 shelf spaces, bunk beds) but they are really good value for money and you get a special deal for being a SANCCOB volunteer. A good stay for a month but... More

This guesthouse is in a good area, but the effort that went into the rooms and bathrooms are shocking. We had to buy our own pillows, as theirs were very old and thin. There were no wardrobes to hang your clothes and the walls could do with a new coat of paint. The communal kitchen was really dirty. If you... More

It makes us very sad to hear that you were not satisfied with your rooms. Our lodge is a self-catering accommodation and it is cleaned carefully 7 days a weeek. The communal kitchen is cleaned first thing in the morning at 9 am and if it is used afterwards by some guests who don`t tidy up after the usage it... More

My husband and I traveled to Cape Town for our anniversary last year and stayed at Elements for a short while. The staff were friendly and helpful, which is always a great start. We stayed in Earth room, which was beautiful. I will have to see the other rooms sometime. :) The house is nicely decorated and quite a unique... More

We so enjoyed staying at Elements Lodge. Stefan and Anya were so helpful and convivial, with lots of suggestions. The nicest people stay there and we spent several evenings whiling away the hours with fascinating and friendly fellow guests. Several of the guests are hard working volunteers for a local penguin rehab facility which you can tour if you like.... More

We stayed at Elements on the way up to the West Coast and Cederberg. It was great! Lovely situation near to Table View and Bloubergstrand, with all the nice restaurants and bars. But in quiet suburb. Handy for Cape Town too - a short drive and we were at the Waterfront. We loved it - clean and modern, with a... More

We had a great time staying here for about a week. We stayed in the appartment. Elements is Close to Bloubergstrand. From the guesthouse it's easy to reach mutiple kitesurf beaches. They have a nice relact garden with a pool. You can also use the braai in the garden.

There's also a beautiful small garden with benches, tables and a small pool. Simple room, clean and quite with nice bathroom and a big window overlooking... More

My stay at Elements was really great and Anja was so friendly and helpful with everything. Me and my friend stayed in a double room and it was bright, airy and very clean. For the service and accommodation provided the rates are very good and I would definitely stay there again. I usually stay in Cape Town Centre so it... More
