Amber Tree Lodge
Reviewed 18 January 2015

Upon arrival I received a warm welcome and all the information needed to get familiar with Cape Town. The accommodation was perfect, especially the garden and the balcony were amazing. Definitely worth recommending to others!

Room Tip: Dorms are excellent!

I have stayed at a few backpackers in Cape Town and Amber Tree definitely has the most to offer. It is close to everything, has a great view, is clean, awesome staff, great value and I can go on. I was traveling with my parents and wanted them to experience backpackers. After reading the reviews, I figured Amber Tree was the best bet and they did not upset. I would definitely return.

Very nice. Very helpful people work there. Very nice layout. Has Wifi. Great location. I would like to go back there and I would recommend it to anyone. It had a very nice garden. I felt I could spend my whole time just relaxing there.

I stayed first the first time in cape town and was really impressed by the amber tree lodge and how the staff is doing their business. Just a perfect place to stay, located near the table mountain and all other great things of mother city. The facilities are on a very high standard, never seen such a good looking and lovely designed hostel. Don't wait, just book your stay ! :-)

It's very easy to see why Amber Tree Lodge is rated so highly. The owner was a ultra friendly and very helpful. I've stayed in dorm beds in hostels all over the world but I can't recall beds that were as comfortable as Amber Tree Lodge. The free breakfast, coffee/ tea, satellite TV, and the free computer were all a nice touch. The outside areas upstairs and in the garden are really quite lovely. If that wasn't enough, there are a number of good bars, cafes, and restaurants within close proximity. Amazing!
