Welcome to our hostel

Located at the foot of Table Mountain, Ashanti Lodge and Travel Centre is your gateway to Cape Town. Within walking distance of the city centre and close to Cape Town’s magnificent beaches, this hostel provides travellers with breathtaking views as well as an outdoor swimming pool and a trendy bar.

Accommodation ranges from camping and backpacker dorms to private, en-suite rooms. Chill out next to the sparkling pool, in the landscaped gardens or on any of the spacious balconies and palm-fringed sun decks or join the party in the hostel’s legendary Kumasi Bar with its cool cocktails and fabulous mountain views. The giant TV shows all the major sporting events, or set up your own match over the pool table. You can also get delicious meals in the bar, or you can cater for yourself in the well-equipped communal kitchen.

The dedicated Travel Centre staff will help you plan your next adventure; whether it’s overland, under water or beyond the border. From cross-country safaris to day tours, including hiring cars and booking accommodation, Ashanti Lodge will ensure you get the best from your trip, no matter where you’re going in Southern Africa.

Ashanti Lodge offers plenty of bloodmeal hungry bedbugs in their dormitory beds, and a cannabis-smokig clientele on their premises. But Ashanti Lodge does on the other hand have some modern bathrooms on the upper floor, and a courtyard pool. This is one of the worst managed HI hostels with inappropriate reception staff, but on the other hand, this party hostel receives high scores from the partying-minded travellers.

Wir hatten 2 Nächte im Doppelzimmer und in einer späteren Buchung eine 3. Anschlußnacht in der SELBEN Kategorie gebucht. Am Tag vor der 3. Übernachtung wurden während unserer Abwesenheit alle unsere Sachen (inklusive der im Safe) aus dem Zimmer geholt und an der Rezeption gelagert, weil wir in ein anderes - nahezu identisches!!! - Zimmer umziehen sollten. Davon war morgens - trotz expliziter Nachfrage an der Rezeption - keine Rede. Unsere Sachen wurden dabei verschmutzt und teilweise beschädigt.

Tout le matériel nécessaire est à disposition (même des lampes de chevet suspendues individuelles et des casiers à code). En revanche, cette auberge est vraiment trop bruyante. Il y a des écriteaux qui indiquent qu'à 23h, le bruit doit cesser, pourtant, le bar fonctionne encore à 1h du mat, musique à fond. Tard dans la nuit et tôt le matin, on a l'impression qu'il y a un gros déménagement, à cause du revêtement au sol. J'étais dans la chambre juste en-dessous du bar, c'était un enfer.
