We stayed here in a double room the night before our tour started with Acacia and I was very impressed by the quality of accommodation for a backpackers hostel. Our room was very clean, as were the bathrooms and I was very impressed by the chilled out atmosphere. It didn't seem to be a party place (maybe because it's a bit pricier than others) but with most of the rooms located upstairs away from the common areas there was no noisiness and we had a very good sleep. Common areas consisted of a decent size kitchen which was very clean with a smallish dining table and a lounge area with a 3 seater lounge. Internet only works in common areas. I guess if there could be an improvement it would be to increase the furnishings in the common areas to accommodate more than a few people but otherwise great place to stay.

We were staying here prior to jumping on a tour. The room was basic but clean and just what we needed after a long flight. Staff were friendly and helpful and we didn't have anything to worry about during our time there

I was very happy to have come across Ashanti Lodge. It was clean and comfortable and very affordable. Also situated in a lovely part of CapeTown with easy access to other areas. the staff were friendly and very helpful. I will stay there again when I return to South Africa.

A home away from home for me. The staff very friendly, location good. I am not a party person so was happy that this place was relaxed and the dorms were comfortable . It's clean and you can make your own pancakes for breakfast
