We really enjoyed our stay at Altona lodge. Everyone was really helpful and nice. Rooms and shared bathrooms were always very clean. Good breakfast for R60. Great location in Green Point, close to nice restaurants and the ocean. We will definitely come back!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Altona and loved every single moment of it. Peter and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. From providing useful information to ordering taxis to allowing us to print tickets. The place itself is located on a quiet street about 15mins walk from the city centre and port. There is a small...

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms with a shared bathroom (paid less for it), you can also stay in ensuite rooms. Very clean, modern, large TV, great wifi, kitchen was large. Breakfast was amazing. But best of all was Peter and his brilliant staff, could not recommend this guys highly enough! Thank you.

This is the perfect place for a busy visit to Cape Town. Great location - 15min walk from Waterfront. Bedrooms, bathrooms and all communal areas spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and exceptionally helpful when organising transport and things to do. I will be returning to Cape Town and when I do I will be returning to Altona Lodge.

I have lived nearby in Green Piont 40 years ago and was pleasantly surprised at what was on offer at Altona Lodge, by way of reasonable tariffs, overall condition of the lodge, friendly staff reception, and although apprehensive to leave the car parked in the street two blocks away, it was perfectly safe. All round good value for your money...

Our stay in Altona Lodge was very pleasant. The people working there are very helpful and make their best to please the customers. The house is lovely, with a nice patio inside. The room are pretty small but very cozy!

My wife and I stayed Altona Lodge for six days over th Christmas period. The best accolade I can give the lodge is that it felt like home. Peter and Wendy were more than helpful, solving any issues that arose and helping with limportant local information about special events over the festive period. I will definitely be back!!

It was like staying in an old fashioned guest house - lots of character and charm. You can self cater but they have an excellent breakfast for 60R. The owners were very warm and helpful. Location was close to Main Road and transport.

I fudged the date a bit as it wouldn't let me go back as far Sept 2015, but it's been on my mind that I must come back to write a review....it was that good. In fact it's the only accommodation that I will be reviewing! I stayed here solo to see CapeTown for a few days before flying east...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Altona’s biggest advantage is its location. The accommodation offered is at ‘entry level’ and we frequently refer to it as ‘two steps up from a Backpackers’. We offer comfortable and clean surroundings. The house, having 18 bedrooms, is ideal for small groups. Historically it has been very popular with Sport and School Groups and fits the pockets of International travellers who seeks budget accommodation without having to compromise their privacy. ... more   less
