This was a great place to stay! The place was clean, and well kept. Breakfast was delicious! The only downside, was I felt that it was not as central to all the museums I wanted to see. However, every time I wanted to go somewhere, the staff was so helpful and called me a cab. It was about a 1/2... More

I was eaten up by bedbugs my first night at Ashanti Green Point. I even woke up and flipped on the light and found one munching on my arm. I trapped it on the bed under a cup and slept on the top bunk the rest of the night. I showed staff and they were cool about it and apologized,... More

Hi Qalabuse What a terrible, terrible experience you had - for which I can only apologise! As I am sure you aware there ARE times in a backpackers loge when these critters raise their ugly heads and I can assure you that it has absolutely nothing to do with our cleanliness (you can research this) but usually they have been...

We stayed for three nights at Ashanti Green Point as we heard it was more chilled than the other Ashanti. We had a lovely double room and found the rooms to be very clean and safe. The bathrooms were shared and just down the hall and were always clean. Green point is a nice area and we felt very safe.... More

We spent one night at Ashanti Lodge in a twin room. What a pleasant surprise for the price! Everything was clean and neat. The beds and bedding were incredibly comfortable. Clean towels are supplied. (Good towels! Not threadbare overly used ones!) The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. "Dan the Man" on reception was particularly welcoming. I can't really... More

Our stay as older travelers was very comfortable. Our room at the back of the lodge was quiet and very well set up. We used the kitchen that was provided and enjoyed eating in the company of fellow travelers. Excellent grocery stores are within walking distance. As others have pointed out the location is convenient and you can walk along... More

Ashanti lodge is cool, clean, quiet and secure ! It is a great place for a stay in CPT because not far from Waterfront and City center. You will find shops and restaurants in sea point or green point.

Hi there, the hostel appeared good - with all the new beds and facility- but service, especially the service provided by the manager, is very poor. Dont expect any help from him.

We have only spent one night in the Ashanti Lodge but it was just perfect. The hotel is perfectly located, clean and modern. Green Point is a nice hub, you can walk easily and safely to the beach or to Waterfront. If you don't have a car, you can take the "Myciti Bus". Very convenient.
