“superb hostel, but don't touch the Wi-Fi!”
Reviewed March 15, 2011

the hostel itself is just great and earns it 5 stars! newly renowated, bright, convenient location, top clean and well sercived!
but hopefully you arrive when one of the guys is there at the reception. the lady simply beggars all description! it was quite difficult to figure out who's the customer and who's the service provider with her :-O just as an example the wi-fi internet connection: they sell you 1h for 'I-can't-remeber-how-much-because-I-decided-better-to-forget-quickly' and in the fine-print you find that they even put a 40MB traffic limit on that. After enquiering they say that it's actually 80MB. But still, after doing some online-banking it was kinda used after like 30min. Asking how that cuold be, the plane answer is: "well you just seemed to suf to much". no youtube, no soundfiles, not even activated flash, but she would just sell me another time-ticket for a price way over the top! better don't hassle with that Wi-Fi and just go down to a green point internet-café where you find easily one that sells you an hour to half the price with at least twice as much MB!

We stayed there for 4 nights during our visit in Cape Town. The hostel is brand new. We had a double room with basin in it. Showers and toilets on the floor. Everything was really clean and the stuff was very nice and helpful.
The location is good, you can walk to the stadium and the waterfront within 20 minutes. The area is safe during the day, I wouldn´t walk there during the night, just take a taxi.
We enjoyed our stay at the Ashanti Lodge Green Point and can recommand it to everyone.

Very comfortable, clean and neat lodge, centrally located if you are driving your way around Cape Town. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed every minute we spent at the Lodge even though it was mostly at night after a day spent taking part in the activities. Good value for money!!!!!!!!!!1

Ashanti Lodge at Green Point is one of the newest and cleanest hostels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, the kitchen and bathrooms immaculate and the staff are happy to assist you with anything you need to know. Whether it be planning transport, your onward journey, the best place for breakfast (Giovanni's) or a nice place for sunset drinks (Blue Peter Hotel in Big Bay), they were always spot on! Thanks guys!!!
