My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 days at Ashanti Lodge and I have to say it was a great experience indeed. The staff and manager (Nick) were very friendly and accommodating. The double room we stayed in was immaculate. Clean, neat, spacious, well designed and very comfortable. The place is in a good neighbourhood and there's very good security.... More

Our triple room was nice and clean with good mattresses and clean crisp bedding.The really filthy kitchen (I think the cupboards as well as the coffee and tea tins hadn't been cleaned for weeks and the fridge was full of obviously expired food items) and the extremely basic bathrooms which are to be shared with two other rooms let us...

Hello Adina Thank you for your review. I apologise for the dirty kitchen - you are right, it is completely unacceptable. Sometimes in a communal environment things do get dirtier quicker and we should be on top of it. I have personally overseen a deep clean of the ktichen and we will definitely be more on top of it in... More

I spent two nights at Ashanti Backpacker in a "twin room single use". It's OK but not exceptionnal. The hotel is recent and nicely - though simply - decorated. My room had a washbasin, good beds and nice lights. It was clean. Bathrooms were next door. The good points are: - the localisation, at Greenpoint, in a very quiet street,... More

Stayed here on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed with Ashanti before. As we came as a family we chose the Greenpoint Ashanti as it is billed as less of a party place, which is what we were looking for. We stayed in a nice, clean, modern private room. The staff were friendly and helpful and made us... More

Greenpoint is great, and everything else was booked due to a fair in CT, hence we remained our last days at Ashanti, due to good location. The dorm rooms are fine - clean, modern, but they did not have locks for us. The place is clean enough, except the disgustingly dirty pool; there is zero communal feeling (possibly due to... More

I had previously stayed at two backpackers in Cape Town before I found Ashanti Lodge Greenpoint. I really enjoyed Ashanti and would recommend it to all backpackers. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the backpackers is very safe. The staff was friendly and always gave a smile and a hello when we arrived. The atmosphere of the backpackers is... More
