Great facilities, with clean dorms and bathrooms and comfortable beds. Walking distance from Long Street, which is a tourist hub for dinner, etc. Travel agency and bar located inside the hostel. Lockers and safes in the dorms. I definitely recommend!
Really nice hostel to stay, pick up some good tips from the tour booking desk and/or just relax by the pool. Highly recommend Juma's woodstock street art and township tours.
A good place to stay in Cape Town. Location cannot be beaten, it's close to Table mountain and Long Street is in walking distance. The area is safe. Good atmosphere at the bar. The staff at the reception and the travel centre is very friendly and helpful, those at the bar sometimes a little bit unmotivated. Rooms and facilities were clean and well maintained . Can definitely recommend it :-)
Staff was amazing, always willing to help. The hostel offered many facilities and the place was very clean and everything looked new. Great vibe ! Just wish it was closer to Long Street...
The hostel was perfectm amazing staff, always willing to help. I wish it was closer to long street.
Nice place, comfortable rooms, good central location and helpful staff. Not many people around, although it might have been because we visited in the winter or just during a time that they were not as full. I heard it was very popular though, so it probably is much more full in warmer months. Definitely recommended!
Pretty good hostel. Not the best I've been to but I would still recommend. Always lots of staff on hand to help cater to the large hostel maintenance. Not too vibey in social terms though.
My stay at Ashanti was definitely good. The staff was very nice and helpful and the other travelers were incredibly awesome as well. Only down side was, that the music got louder and louder the later it got, but if you kindly ask them to turn it down, they will. Maybe the security pin for the doors should be changed on a regular basis.

There was a weird smell in my room and the staff did not assist me in terms of taking me through the facilities. Alos, information regarding check-in was not available on Hostelworld.
Staff were amazingly helpful & the place has an amazing atmosphere. Pretty disappointing though when a guest gets mugged at knife point when he was dropped off directly at the front gate.
I stayed in a private ensuite that was wonderful. The dorms seemed even better, though. Beautiful renovated house with high ceilings and grand rooms. Lovely hostel in a great location - just adjacent to the best parts of Kloof. Great grounds and there's a pool! There's also a cafe/bar upstairs when you. Kitchen could use an update, especially the pots and pans, but I would definitely recommend staying here.

Amazing hostel. Great vibe from Liz at the travel desk the moment we walked in. She also gave us some great recommendations! Great food and cheap drinks upstairs. I came here last minute after bad experiences at another hostel, only had 1 night available, I booked my shark dive, and they went out of their way to call the shark dive place and leave a message for me saying they could extend my stay as something opened up. Great customer service! Will definitely stay here again!
Helpful staff, cool atmosphere, great facilities.
Lovely place to stay and very central.

Great Hostel! Nice rooftop and pool with a stunning view of Table mountain and Lion's Head.
Good location, awesome hostel! Table Mountain in the background when you have breakfast! Good food facilities, nice atmosphere at night at the bar! Safe to walk around at night. Will go back there!
Cape town has high quality backpackers accross the city.... Ashanti is a good place to stay if in Capetown. Close to everything, organised activities, clean safe and secure...nice
This is one of these hostels that you can't leave. Really awesome staff, good vibe in the bar, swimming pool with an amazing view on Table Mountain. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
