Reviewed 11 June 2016 via mobile

Quaint and quiet and well positioned to Cape's trendy bars and restaurants.

Mattresses too thin, so not completely comfortable, showers very low pressure. Generally clean, full DSTV bouquet and basic breakfast served. Stand alone PC with Internet and WIFI - Small, but one of the better ones! Well done!

I spent a few nights in a dorm at Amber Tree. The room was lovely, cosy and clean.
The facilities provided were very good, the wifi worked really well and the provided breakfast was good.
The staff were really friendly and helpful!
The location was nice and quiet, and only a fairly short walk to the centre of town.
I really enjoyed my stay at Amber Tree and would recommend it to others!

Really nice hostel, perfectly located, only 5 mins walk to Long Street. But still it is in a quiet neighborhood. The view from balcony to Table Mountain is wonderful! Also the Hosts are really nice and caring!

Great location relative to Long Street, Table Mountain, and Lion's Head a little far from the water though but not an expensive Uber ride away. Nice bed and breakfast feel and decent, helpful staff. Would recommend to a friend.

This place on the map - and no prior knowledge of Cape Town - looks slightly out of the way. It's not. It's actually in a very good area for visitors, with a little clutch of restaurants, bars, shops, and a launderette just around the corner, and a very trendy street full of great bars, shops, food options on the main road (Kloof St?) 2 mins away. Easy to get into town or towards Table Mountain (or Camps Bay) via taxi or bus,or just by walking. We didn't stay here at first for the location reason, but it was a much much better area than the place where we did stay. Don't be confused by location away from Sea or Long St (a dump). This is best area I saw in over a week in the city.

As for the hotel itself, it's a decent value, comfortable, easygoing place. The guys at reception are friendly and helpful without being too full on.

Highly recommended all round.

Room Tip: Good double room out the back. Not bad twin upstairs. The 6 bed dorm at front on left, is a little c...
