Amber Tree Lodge is in a great location with customer service and amenities to rival any upscale hotel. The street was quiet but just a few blocks from restaurants and bars of every type, and only a R40 taxi ride from the bottom of Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront. With a MyCity bus stop just steps away, it was... More

We were looking for just a nights stay and booked the private en-suite room. The lodge was the just in terms of location, cleanliness and had a real home feel to it. I would def recommend this place. Walking distance to long street and all the shops, bars, restaurants etc.

It's like stepping into a home and its full of lovely people. We were able to cook our friends dinner and invite them around. Stephen and Wayne are so easy going and no question is too much for them. They arranged all sorts for us, I was very sad to leave. If you are staying in Cape Town stay here!

Amber Tree Lodge is really awesome! Helpful staff, cosy living room, well-eqiupped kitchen and central localisation made our stay more than great. It's also easy to find it thanks to a bus stop which is almost at the doorstep of the hostel. Highly recommended!

With 5 other friends, it was the first time that we had come to Capetown. We were very surprised with the way this place was kept. It was clean and had a lot to offer. There was much room with great accommodations. Stephen and Wayne were very helpful in giving us options to explore Capetown and see what they had... More

Me and My friend had such a nice stay in Amber. First timers in CPT and SA, and couldn't have made a better choice for accommodation! Everything worked so smoothly, the staff was very friendly and always willing to help and find a solution to our question or problem. They have time for a laid-back discussion as well... :) The...

Spent the last 3 days here and had no problems at all. Everyone that works the front desk is extremely helpful and informative. Rooms and beds are clean. Has a very chill vibe though like someone's house. Other hostels it seems have a little bit more upbeat vibe in Capetown but I preffered the laid back atmosphere.

Not much else to add to all the other reviews. This place is just a fantastic hostel. We stayed as a couple but with two other friends in February 2014. Wayne and Steven were super helpful with arranging us to be in the same dorm room before we arrived - and with everything once we were there. We got so... More
