Amber Tree Lodge is the perfect "feel-good-place". The dorms are small but comfortable. There is a big living room where you can spend the evenings after a city tour. And you have a big kitchen for cooking - feels just like home. The people there are very helpful and friendly. They organize everything for your perfect stay in Cape Town:... More

Amber Tree Lodge is a great place to stay. I was there for 3 nights in a double room w ensuite. Everyone was helpful and met some cool people from around the world. It isn't a huge place so there is a nice quiet vibe, although we walked down to a few bars one night. Definitely recommend a stay here.

Clean, friendly, well managed, great living area and kitchen, fantastic location with great coffee, top restaurant, groceries, ATM within 1 minute walk. Ill be back for sure. The real question...

We stayed here for a week in May and don't think we could have picked a better hostel. The hostel is in a good location with good bars and restaurants just a few minutes walk away but also not too far from the big attractions like Table Mountain and the brilliant Waterfront. The rooms were clean and comfortable although the... More

I lodged 19 nights at ATL. It has excellent facilities, is well-kept and clean with friendly, helpful staff, and I would place it in the top 10 of all hostels I have lodged in on four continents. Some minor concerns: showers would occasionally run out of hot water in the first minute; the WiFi could be clunky slow some times... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Cape Town. Stephen and Wayne were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the lounge and kitchen are among the best of the hostels I have visited. Very close to Long streets bars and cafes and buses. Thanks guys for making... More

It is a very roomy and clean hostel. There is wifi access and a large kitchen and living area. The service was very good. It is set in a good location, restaurants and bars on walking distance but quiet at night.

Best hostel that I have stayed in. Perfectly clean, very comfortable beds, great bathrooms, very helpful staff, cosy and comfortable sitting room, great kitchen, excellent wifi, lots of good backpacker touches and a super location. I would highly recommend Amber Tree Lodge.

I've stayed twice at Amber Tree Lodge, and as I'm planning to head back in early 2015 I will certainly be staying for a third time! I've stayed with a friend and as a lone traveller, both times were equally as good! The hostel offers a variety of accommodation from twins to dorms and last time I was there they... More
