I stayed in a solo room overnight. The staff were friendly and the overall experience was great. Fun, cheap bar, working free wifi, and a good breakfast buffet. Room would have been small for two people, but still doable.

Comfy room for 1 by the pool. Helpful staff at the front reception. Highly recommended for backpackers. Perfect for people traveling solo, like me. Short walk to long street with its bars, pubs and shops.

We stayed in Ashanti after we returned from Afrikaburn, the place itself is really nicely located in Gardens with all you can wish for in the neighborhood. The facilities are very nice. But especially for me the keepers of the good vibes: Tyrone and Sasha, where amazing. Thanks guys!

Not directly on the Longstreet, but everything ia in walking distance, the staff is super friendly and the beds are really good. There are always man people, and I really felt comfortable... Some friends recommend this hostel to me and I will also definitely recommend it to everybody!

Very noisy hostel. Not a good place of you want sleep. There were people using cannabis on the bar balcony so wouldn't recommend if you don't approve of drugs. All you can eat breakfast buffet for 55 rand was good, as were safes & lockers in rooms.

I stayed here for one night. Place was really clean and comfortable and from the back you can see table mountain! Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable about what to see and do in Cape Town.

We camped. The camping spot is underneath the bar, and people come out to smoke above the tents late into the evening. So it's noisy, and although most drunk people will keep the door shut and the noise down if you ask them, I doubt everyone wants to ask. There are rats around the camping area. Unaware of this, we...

Hi Vanessa H Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you found the hostel noisy - maybe there was a party the night you were here? We have become very strict with noise control and the bar closes at 11pm. Unfortunately, if travellers come back late from town and make a noise, there is little we can do... More
