Just got annoyed with one of your African male cleaners, who clearly was prejudiced towards me, because of my ethnicity of being a coloured person. I comfronted him.

Ashanti Gardens is a very nice, lively Place to stay. Breakfast on the balcony with a glance on Tablemountain is fabulous!

All in all it's a great backpackers to stay in! You feel very safe and the people are nice. The only problem is the wifi - you get a free code but have to get a new one every 2 hours and sometimes it doesn't work at all.. But a perfect place to spend your time!

Hello Katharina - thanks for your comment and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. You are right - issuing those vouchers for the free wi-fi is a real pain (specially when they don't work!!) but we are looking at a few new systems. In the meantime, at least most of the time your free wi-fi works :-0 Regards Lisa

I really wanted to leave an EXCELLENT rating across all the categories but I couldn't for the following reasons: the rooms were spotless and so were the common areas; however, the restrooms and showers needed cleaning. All the staff were outstanding, except for the tall blobdish guy with curly hair. He needs to learn how to listen to the customer and not make assumptions. Lizette is an outstanding organizer that goes above the call of duty to make her guests happy. She gets an OUSTANDING score

Thanks for your review William. I will have a word with the cleaning staff regarding the showers, but am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. Regards, Lisa

Good dorms, comfy beds, great duvet.. Very secure with gate codes, a security guard overnight, plus personal safes. The pool area is really nice, the cafe/bar does cheap good food and has a good social atmosphere at night. The bar balcony has a great view of Table Mtn and Lions Head - good for checking if it's a good day to climb! Good kitchen and has a supermarket only a short walk away. Staff is fantastic. Have a tour desk on site to book anything you're interested in doing. Free wifi.

Its in Gardens, nice location. It is a very big hostel, in my room was only one other girl out of six beds so if its not full it might be a little lonely although its a very party hostel. Lots of noises during the night. Pretty clean and free wifi that expires every two hours, but no complains!
