“Awesome place to stay in cape town!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

srdphen was incredibly helpful and made our stay in capetown very enjoyable. he set up a great wine tour for us, suggested some excellent places nearby to eat at (Arnolds for game and the local Ocean basket for fish, with a coupon for a free bottle of wine at Arnods. Both were excellent. ) we stayed in the private double room with bathroom. It was great: clean, lots of room and a nice bathroom. Location was perfect, close to all we needed. A wonderful place to stay, looking forward to returning.

I stayed at the Amber Tree Lodge for 10 days. I came to Cape Town without a plan and ended up just staying there. Nothing more to add to all the other reviews - Stephen and Wayne are amazing, it is a great place in a beautiful and safe neighbourhood for good money. I am coming back to CPT in about two weeks - and guess where I will be staying...

Stayed at Amber Tree Lodge for 10 days. Not going to write a review >> see score, ranking and the reviews from other guests. Excellent place to stay (loved the hammock with a beautifull view on the Table Mountain)!

This is a great hostel. Good location, not too far away from long street and the nearest bar is like 50 m away, but still it's quiet enough. The staff is awesome, they really make you feel right at home! The dorms are actually really cozy, beds comfortable and the toilets and showers are the cleanest I' ve ever seen in a hostel. The free breakfast, tea and coffe is a nice bonus. You also have free wifi throughout the hostel. It isn't a huge hostel which, I think, makes it more intimate and easier to get to know the other guests. I also like the common room with it's tv, dvd and movies, computer and books. Would absolutely revisit Amber Tree Lodge if I return to Cape Town!

Won't repeat the other reviews on here, but just to say it totally lived up to them. Nice rooms, really helpful staff, and good facilities. Good location, within walking distance of most parts of CT. Definitely would recommend.

The Amber Tree Lodge is a really great place to stay. Excellent people and really nice comfortable rooms. Location is really great too, close to lots of nice places to eat, ATM's, Supermarket etc. and Table Mountain is right there as well. If you plan to stay in Cape Town you should definetly check this place out.
We picked up some really great pointers for the rest of our trip from Henk.

The balcony is pretty amazing too. Great place to chill out and relax after a big day climbing the mountain or cruising around the city.

We loved this place so much we left our guitar there for other travellers to play. Have fun if you go there and have a jam.

We traveled trough South Africa for six weeks and this is by far the best hostel we stayed in. We had 10 days in Cape Town and didn't planned to stay at one place so we first booked just one night. Eventually we only stayed here because we liked the hostel and its location so much. The service is excellent and so are the rooms. It is very clean, spacey, the beds are really comfortable, the kitchen is also really good and the living room is very cozy. In short: we would highly recommend this place, it's wonderful.
