This is a really really great place. I stayed in the twin room which was really large with a large private bathroom and all modern and very clean. It's in a brilliant area too.


Fantastic place to stay in Cape Town! Right off Long Street, so plenty of food and drinks are within a 5 minute walk. Steve was a fantastic host and helped us make all our necessary reservations for activities, and he is extremely knowledgeable of the area and provides great insights on what to do during your stay. Free WiFi was also a small but very handy perk. Would be hard pressed to find a better accommodation anywhere, especially for the price!


Stephen, Wayne and all the others were very friendly and helpful at all times. The hostel is located in a pleasant and safe area. There are also plenty services and restaurants in the vicinity. It is close to Long Street, however not in the middle of the noisy area, which is brilliant. They have got lockers, a storage room, free wi-fi and breakfast is included. Dorms and bathroom were fairly clean too. It's got a chilled vibe, with sociable guests but not a party hostel. Very good value for $.


We enjoyed our stay here - nice lounge area to relax with fellow travellers and well equipped kitchen. Breakfast included and good. We walked from here to waterfront in 30mins. Plenty of good restaurants in the area. We stayed in a double room which was comfortable, but quite cold, though the owner did give us a heater when we asked.


This place changed my mind about hostels! Steve, Wayne & Jo were so helpful, the dorms and bathroom were super clean and tidy and the whole atmosphere was so friendly and relaxed. I recommended Amber Tree to everyone I met on the Baz Bus who was headed to Cape Town.
