A home away from home for me. The staff very friendly, location good. I am not a party person so was happy that this place was relaxed and the dorms were comfortable . It's clean and you can make your own pancakes for breakfast

We always enjoy our stay at Ashanti. The staff are friendly, the place is clean and neat. We have stayed in a couple of backpackers and none of them meet the standards of Ashanti. I would recommend Ashanti to all my friends and family.

Ashanti Lodge Green Point is an excellent choice for young or solo travelers and offers both single/double rooms and communal hostel rooms. The decor is modern and light, and the beds are comfortable. Some of the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, but otherwise the communal bathrooms are clean and neat and still to a degree private - the showers are...

We arrived as a big group and were shown such warmth when checking in. The overall state of the lodge was pleasing to the eye and very clean. Ashanti Lodge will most certainly be seeing me again in the future.

My two friends and I had a great stay in the 3-bed room. It was simple, but clean and the location in the Green Point neighborhood was in a useful location center to many of our activities. It would have been nice to have our own private bathroom, but I knew that it was a shared bathroom when I made...

The reception was solemn. We were frustrated after going through the process of checking in at the Ashanti Gardens instead of Greenpoint only to find out our bookin was actually in Green Point. We were not in the best mood and the receptionist was tolerant but also not very helpful. The dorm rooms were disappointing and we struggled to get...

Hi E3921SEcamib We are sorry that you went to the wrong property and had to do the check-in process twice due to this. With regards to the dorms, having a combination door code is industry standard and we do this for our guests own safety and convenience. Kind regards, Jason

Dorm was roomy and bed comfortable with room to store luggage underneath the bed which you could lock with your own padlock. Staff friendly though not exactly willingly helpful in terms of where to get food, what to do etc. A nice stay overall.
