Very very helpful staff. Lost my phone on the night before I left ZA and they helped me searching for it for hours until we finally found it with the help of security cams. Most amazing staff ever! :) Keep on being like this, I really appreciate this.

Ashanti Lodge Gardens is in a nice quiet area within easy walking distance of downtown. They have a good variety of accommodations from dorm and privates in their main building and some quieter private accommodations down the street. The food and drinks were quite reasonable in their restaurant and the breakfast was stellar. The staff were very friendly and helpful....

What a beautiful place, nice view with mountains. Friendly staff with an excellent service. If you are visiting and looking for a place to stay in Cape town this is best place to stay as it also not far from the city of Cape Town. Delicious food from the restaurant.

Ashanti Bedbug & Mosquito Party-Hostel; catering predominantly to noisy untidy cannabis-smoking party-minded persons with nocturnal ambitions. Plenty of bedbugs in the downstairs rooms. But, there are also some behaved travellers. There is a near daily recurring cannabis smoke from the guests on the hostel premises. A small dipping-pool which permanently maintains such a turbidity of water quality that the bottom...

I stayed at Ashanti for a few nights during a short break in Cape Town. It's a backpackers and the atmosphere is in tune with what you expect from one. Staff were friendly and rooms were cleaned daily. You can book various tours at the front desk and meet fellow travellers and explorers. Thumbs up Ashanti.

The hostel is far from downtown area and a little away from the animated Kloof Street. The dormitory needs a good deal of improvement and upgrading. The outdoor amenities such as garden and swimming pool are indeed up to expectation.

Hello Joseph Thank you for your constructive criticism. The location of Ashanti actually works well because we are just 10 minutes walk from the action but yet in a leafy suburb with a garden and pool which the majority of our guests love!! I will have a look and see which dormitory you stayed in and why it needs upgrading...

In overall the hostel is pretty awesome! They have a lot of rooms (dorms, private) for a good price! The hostel is close to everything and upstairs there is a little café which is really good for coffee, snacks (nachos, sandwichs), and there is a really good breakfast every morning for an additionnal but small price. It is a different...

Hello Kristina Thanks for your (mostly) positive review.

And even when there is a little bit of a party - it would never be until 3am!!! The bar closes latest at midnight and...

 of 5 bubbles leratom2017, 12 Jan 2017 | Read review
“bunk beds work, with the locks, but some rooms were too small to fit in 6 bunk beds. look at the spacing and fit in the beds accordingly. The rooms would also be nice with a chair or 2( ottoman/cubes). Sometimes it's not appropriate to sit on someone's bed when you want to do something. I was on the top bed but when I wanted to sit and wear my shoes, I struggled. rooms can be cleaner. Basin must be cleaned daily and room dustbin must be cleared daily. Establishment need not change sheets daily for guests staying for a period longer than 3 days but they must offer or let them know that they can ask for clean bedding, even if the guests replace it themselves. the option must just be announced. white sheets become dirty quickly. other than that, great place. Great atmosphere, great decor and lovely guests. I loved it.”
