The location is good. The room and lounge area are nice, but there were a few weird things. For one, there were three of us, and they suggested we take in the baz bus from the airport for R350. When we left they said a taxi would be the better rate - for around R200. The arranged the taxi -... More

I stayed in the Lodge from mid February till mid March (33 nights in total) and enjoyed my time a lot. The people working there are very kind and helpful. The guest have been like a little family to me. Thinking back now what really bothers me is that they have two 6 bed dorm for the same price per... More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Amber Tree. The location is safe and in walking distance to restaurants, bars, and shops etc. It also has a beautiful upper porch with a great view of table mountain. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Jo and Wayne went above and beyond helping us plan our time in Cape Town giving recommendations and making... More

Very nice location right next to busy Kloof Street. Friendly staff helping us with a lot of info as it was our first night in South Africa. The only pitfall was that we arranged with the hostel for an airport pick-up and we ended up not being on the list and thus had to take a taxi. Recommended.

I stayed at Amber Tree Lodge at the end of my 10 month cycling trip from the UK to South Africa. I'd heard about the place through word of mouth whilst I was in Zambia and booked to stay. Because of it's reputation, this is a very busy backpackers, booking in advance is a must. THe place is very clean,... More

Fantastic location, with amazing views of Table Mountain from the first floor balcony and loads of bars and restaurants just a short walk away. It's cosy, clean and friendly. Staff were really helpful, letting us store bags for a few days, giving us directions, ringing taxis etc.

I stayed at Amber tree lodge for a few nights to explore Cape Town with a friend . We were immediately greeted and shown around the lodge and it made us feel very at home. The decor was brilliant, cleanliness outstanding and I was very impressed with how they could organise a rental car for me, shark cage diving and... More

Denititely a good choice for our week in Cape Town. A 5 minute walk to the city centre, and staff that was helpful at all times off day. After a busy and active day in the city, the showers and the beds were amazing and very comfortable. I would recommend this place for sure to every guest that wants to... More

My 2nd stay here, 19 days last August, and now 17 days this March. ATL is located on a quiet street, but near everything, just a couple minutes walk away. Excellence is in the details and ATL nails it every day, day after day. Steve, Wayne, Jo and all the Amber Tree Lodge staff get all the little things right.... More
