The staff were very helpful
The kitchen makes lots of noise getting the breakfast set up, so no late sleep in.
You should tell the costumers during the check in not to go into the pool without a shower. I am also missing a quite room where you can read use the interner probably ect.
Ashanti has a homely feel. An old beautiful house with wooden floors, high ceilings, modern day comforts and finishes with awesome views of table mountain. Lots of nooks and quiet places to enjoy a book, coffee or glass of wine. Excellent in house travel desk.
Our room was situated close to the communal kitchen. The staff who arrived early and fixed breakfast were a bit rowdy, we would have liked to sleep peacefully for a bit longer.
Location Facilites Spacious Relaxed
Cleanliness Kitchen fridge was too full
I liked nothing of the place. It was surely not what I expected!!
I hated the room as it was cramped up n very small. I was misrable since I stepped foot in that hole that I had payed to sleep in. It was like a hotbox in there n we couldn't sleep. The guys that work there smoke dagga with the guests all day long having no respect for others that actually dont do drugs. I am very disgusted and my husband and I couldn't wait to get out of there. Will never set foot there again or recommend anyone to go there. A waste of money and time!!!
The beds were one of the most comfy beds I've ever slept in. The hostel was very clean and tidy, excellent storage lockers under the bunks and the personal safes in the rooms are a nice touch.
Some of the staff seemed like it was a chore when asked a question or asked for a drink in the bar, especially the one lady who was laid out on the sofa eating when she was meant to be behind the bar. The. Two staff behind the reception desk were about as useful as a chocolate tea pot when asked questions. One guy even said can you come back in a few minutes when the next staff clock on cause I want to finish on time.
Alles, bestes Hostel überhapt, Community and everything was awsome :D
the building itself has a special charme which is underlined by the refurbishment; breakfast buffet is not overboarding but totally satisfying
situation is quiet, but the inside is always a bit noisy
I liked my stay at Ashanti, the house is very nice, the dorms are super cosy, the bar is very convenient.
It is a party hostel, but the noise was ok !
We spent here 4 nights in a double bed room, near the pool. The shared WC and showers was always clear. The breakfast in the bar for 55 ZAR was very good and good price for dinner the salads, the burgers, pizzas... The safe in the room was very useful. The staff was always kind. Good possibility for laudry. There are stamps at the reception. The location is ideal for shops (supermarket), for small restaurants and bars. The Governor Garden is only a short walk. But for the W&A Waterfront a taxi is better. I recommend Ashanti for open people, who loves the music and young travellers.
It was not chair and table in the room but there were immediately on the terasse.
All of it
General vibe was comfortable, friendly, easy-going and generally young.
1. Missed hot water, we only had luke warm water for the shower.
The whole house is just great. The room is big enough.
It lacks of TV at the private 2 beds rooms (I do not know if it have rooms with TV).
Don't accept room near the swimming pool and the kitchen : Noises until 1pm if you don't say: please we would like to sleep. Noises from 6.30-7am due to the staff who starts to clean.
The location was great and of course the price was right for what I got.
I stayed at the Apartments (a few blocks away) as needed peace and quiet. However, the keys / locks to enter each doors (main gate, front door, room door) did not work well at all. I had to play around with each of them before they worked. They looked old, worn out, rusty. I had to get the staff to come and help me a couple of times. The rest of the time, I just used the back door (as I heard the people from next door were doing). The two keys (room door and iron gate) worked a bit better, not great. They REALLY need to change each lock and make it safe in case the guess & cleaners need to leave the place in emergency (in case of fire, etc).and not pleasant when arriving tired, with luggage and / or late at night. The key issue did not work for me. I'm sure they're violating some sort of safety rules. Please make this change before a huge accident happens.
Noisy but okay.
Price Shared toilet and shower facilities were in good condition and clean.
*The Booking. com advert stated free parking at site but parking is in street. I was worried about my car as a car's window was smashed in the street in front of Ashanti at c. 16:00 on the day I stayed there. * Very noisy but it did quiet down around 22:00 * Room is small and no on-suite bathroom (which is why it is cheap I suppose)
The staff were very helpful and friendly
The showers were not cleaned properly. On my last night at about 2300 pm some girls were argueing and reception did nothing about it I was staying in room 52 close to the main passage and reception
Price, Beds, Staff, clean, location Mattress very comfy and also pillow. Fee maps
Bar a bit noisy if you want to sleep. Vomited up breakfast-still had to pay for it! Internet not free like One in Cape Town.
Snoring room mate
I've stayed there 2nd time. First time was 3 years ago. It is still fine place to stay for few days.
This was my favorite hostel I have ever stayed in. I got a private room so that I would have some place quiet to sleep and privacy, and also because I did not know how comfortable the bunk beds would be in the dorms. In the end, it would have been fine to stay in the dorms. They were spacious and the beds were super comfortable with normal bed mattresses. The hostel was filled with young people from all over the world, most very friendly and talkative. There was a bar there where we could get drinks and food, and you could take your drinks outside, near the pool, your room, or hang out on the balcony if you didn't want to stay in the bar. The music was awesome in the bar too. There were no problems with the music being played all night as some reviews had mentioned. I believe they closed at either midnight or 12:30. The staff at the desk was also very helpful with booking day trips, taxis, etc.
The only thing I could suggest is the showers could have been a little cleaner, but I thought they were fine and just wore flip flops.
Definitely recommend it. Great facilities and just a short walk to Long street. Awesome staff! Mark and Ana, you guys are amazing, thanks heaps for all the help! Keep it up!
the vibe and availability of everything a traveller could possibly need. the security is really cool too
Very nice place to stay. Friendly staff and nice breakfast
