For international backpacker in the CBD

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 26, 2011

I had a good time at Ashanti Backpackers. It is a very internation environment there. The dorm rooms are within a Victorian house and everything is very colourful and friendly. It is also quite clean. They also have a great bar with a pool table. Unfortunately I was there in winter so I couldn't really enjoy the pool too much ;)

Unique Quality: Great views onto Table Mountain

I had a dorm room here (with a 65 year old lady), which was really nice. The bar was great, you could get some decent food there and the people were nice. At reception, people were really helpful.

Unique Quality: Nice garden

There are two Ashanti lodge , the one in gardens is the perfect location for travellers.
The staff is very helpfull, they have good informations about excursions, but sometimes sell them at a higher price, maybe they are taking a good commission.

Unique Quality: The view from table mountain in the morning is incredible.
It is not far from the botanical garden.
The lodge situated in an old 19th century house is well decorated.

Cool Hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 22, 2005

Ashanti was recommended by the guide books so I stayed there, and sure enough, I had a great time. I was there a week and no major complaints, although the front desk staff could be a bit more friendly.

Unique Quality: They have a pool, lockers, a deck w/view of table mountain, a bar, and travel desk. The bar's a good place to hang out - very lively.

Don't go wandering in the parks nearby tho... people get mugged back there.
