Steve, Wayne, and the rest of the staff were great. Steve definitely had the right idea for me to go on the city sightseeing bus tour (double decker buses), since it's a good way to get orientated. What you se is what you get, a great place.

Security was great with electronic pass to get through gate and front door, then key for room which lockers. Located 15min walk to city and other way to lions head and table mountain. Bus stop out front to city, waterfront and camps bay. Staff really friendly and helpful with all tips. Showers great and strong wifi. Free breaky is ok but kitchen has everything you need. Very modern and clean. Laundry around the corner for 25zar!! Best hostel in South Africa. tip: book robben island in advance!!

some of the most friendly staff i ever met, keep that atmosphere! nice facilities and perfect location. One little critique could be the noise of the ventilator (withouth it would be too hot). Dont know if there are any, which are more quiet. Though, as there is certainly one snoring person in a 6 beds room you should not forget your earplugs :-)

Great hostel with fascinating people. It's not a party hostel but people have a good time. The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen is excellent and the beds are comfortable. However, there's practically nowhere where you can plug in your electronics in the bathrooms. Also, it's right in front of a safe bus stop but there's no clear instructions on their website on how to easily take the excellent MyCiti bus from the airport to the hostel. I took an expensive cab for no reason.

Had a great time in Cape Town, mainly due to the friendly and helpful staff (Wayne) from Amber Tree! Very clean and organized, cozy and fun! Amazing garden at the back, where you can go for a dinner, drink, or even have your breakfast there! Really good beds (the best that I've ever seen in a Hostel in my entire life!). Very good location, with restaurants, bars and shops everywhere! Highly recommended!!!

Really nice hostel! And really helpful people. I wish I could stay there longer. Eventhough it might not be a party hostel, I met a lot of people there with whom I spent a lot of time and went partying!

It would be nice if they add some fruits and yogurts to the breakfast.

We had a great stay at Amber Tree Lodge and came back for our last night in Cape Town as well. The staff is super friendly, helpful, the kitchen area is great and you can have your breakfast outside! :)

The best hostel I have ever stayed at. It feels more than beeing at home than beeing in a hostel. Very nice staff, very clean, very safe and beautiful facilities.
