Nice spot, good value, bed and Breakfast and staff are very attentive. Would have stayed a few more days if not so popular. Easy access to bus routes and look out for the local attraction. walk to the waterfront 15 - 20mins

Affordable rates, clean and neat, homely atmosphere, best place in Cape Town for the budget traveler. Breakfast can be compared to 4 star. I will never stay anywhere else. Free Wi-Fi. Best hosts ever! Peter, Craig and Wendy you Rock guys!!!!! If you don't want to feel alone when traveling solo, this is the right place to stay.

We had a lovely stay at Altona Guest House. Our room was clean, the breakfast was delicious and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Just make sure you bring mosquito repellent if travelling around March!

"Come as strangers and leave as friends" is the message at the reception. And so it felt. We started our Southern African trip at this lodge, and our stay here (from the 30th of December 2013 untill the 5th of January 2014) was wonderful and relaxed. We were made very welcome by Peter and Craig. We even celebrated New Year's... More

Thanks for a wonderful stay! Best stay I ever had at a hotel. The staff is so friendly, I travelled alone but felt so comfortable and welcome. Great and safe location close to city centre and the beaches. If you are a sporty person -the sea promenad is a lovely place to run. I highly recomend this hotel!
