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

I spent 5 nights at Amber Tree from late February into March. From the moment I stepped foot into the lodge I was greeted with a big smile from Stephen. He made sure I was familiar with the set up of the lodge and the surrounding neighborhood. He directed me with a map and assisted me with booking tours. I... More

The location is great! I liked waking up to my coffee and looking at Table Mountain while readying myself for my adventure of the day. All the action is nearby but far enough away to get a good night sleep. The design of the hostel is great. You can tell the owner takes great care in his design work. The... More

Location: Amber Tree is a small hostel located in a safe area in the heart of Gardens. There are a couple of good restaurants and bars just around the corner. Taxy from the airport (20-30minutes) costs you some 250-300R. Also walking distance from lively Long Street and less than 10 minutes by taxy (60R approximately) from the Water Front which... More
