Ashanti Lodge Green Point
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2014

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 nice and laid back - no bar but you can get a beer and have it on the patio with a couple new friends. The pool is quite small but who wants to sit at a pool while you're in the most beautiful city anyways? The location was great . About a 15-20 minute walk away from waterfront and a quick walk to catch the local taxi to Long Street. If you want to get away from the busy, party-filled long street but still have the opportunity to meet people and enjoy yourself while relaxing then Ashanti is the place for you.

We stayed here after staying at a hostel on long street so this hostel was definitely a lot more quite. However my boyfriend and I are not the party type at all but even this place was a bit to quite for Us. The hostel itself is nice, clean. Spacious etc but that's all I can really say. The guy who looked after us who is on the day shift is really nice and gave us some great tips and advise but the hostel is really lacking some umph!! It's hard to put your finger on but I guess it was just a bit boring. If they livened it up a bit then maybe it would be a better place to stay. I wouldn't say DON'T stay there but just be prepared for a very quite and unexciting stay. Also it would have been nice to have been told about the free pancake mix but we only discovered this on the last day after purchasing 2 breakfasts.

Thank you for your review. I am sure that after staying at a hostel in Long Street, we were much quieter but we do acknowledge that and it certainly seems to work for most people.

I stayed at Ashanti Green Point on monday and tuesday and very impressed with the service and the lodge from the beginning. Check in is usually from 1pm, i arrived in cape town early and was allowed to check in at 11am. Got a tv remote (which i didnt get a previous backpackers lodge). The rooms are very clean with modern touches everywhere. White linen on beds which was an absolute treat as this gives a hotel feel to the property. I forgot to pack towels and had 2 towels in my room and this to me was the very special touch. I will definately recommend Ashanti Lodge to everyone and will surely be back. A big thank you to all the staff for their hospitality!

The safety and security were first class, as was the hospitality of all the staff, who would go out of their way to help. They would book tours etc for you. The place was cleaned every day and the facilities were excellent. As a 70 year old, first time backpacker with a suitcase, I had quite an experience. The Lodge is in walking distance of the beach, shops, eateries and watering holes. I found the beds comfortable and, in general, a very vibrant, friendly atmosphere the whole time I was there. Set back off the main road, it is quiet, except for party nights, which happen now and again
