Amber Tree Lodge sits in a great position above Long Street. Very handy for all the best bars & eateries in Cape Town. The atmosphere here is very good with a lovely lounge area and upstairs balcony. The rooms are not that big and the lack of a/c does make it a bit hot especially when the sun streams in early. The shower rooms could do with re grouting, however they are clean enough. The host Bruce was excellent, nothing was too much trouble.
All in all great value for this part of Cape Town.

Stayed: February 2016

Everything is perfect with this one so not much more to say. The only con is that if you are looking for a party hostel meeting lots of people, maybe not the spot. Otherwise you can't go wrong with this one. Lots of space, chilled, very clean and good facilities!

Had an absolutely wonderful time here! Met some really lovely people, staff are super nice, clean and quite, short walk from centre and near some good restaurants. The place is clean, and has all the amenities. The only thing I will say is they have replaced the aircon with fans so the rooms can get a bit stuffy on a hot night.

Like my title says, I would rather call it a backpackers than a lodge. The truth is probably somewhere inbetween. All in all I can really recommend this place in Cape Town for the following reasons:
+ increadibly friendly and helpfull staff who really seem to like their job
+ amazing view on Table Mountain from their balcony
+ MyCiti Bus stop is just around the corner (1 min walking)
+ Checkers and Woolworths are also in walking distance
+ Dorms look beautiful, have big lockers (bring own lock) and beds are probably among the best one's I had on this continent.
+ Kitchen is super well equipped and their kifes actually cut things easily
+ Basic breakfast included (toast, jam, peanut butter, milk, coffee, cornflakes, bran flakes)
+ It is quiet at night
+ Very nice other guests (became friends with a couple of people)
+ If you want to go out, bars and great restaurants are in walking distance (if you want to eat Game, ask them for "Arnold's" vouchers, so you will also get a free bottle of wine there)
+ Beautiful small garden
+ Well working free Wifi
+ They recycle (could be mentioned a little more obvious at check-in)
+ Early check-ins are possible (from 7 or 8 on)

As I also like to give feedback of how places could improve, I also want to do it here, but the criticism is definitely minimal:
- I think the floors in the community bathrooms could be cleaned more often or thoroughly.
- Breakfast could include a little more like fruits.
- THAT'S IT!


Rates from R180 in 6 sleeper dorm (at least in main season 2015/16)

Room Tip: The dorms are perfectly alright and have very comfy beds

Out of all of the places I stayed at in South Africa, this was easily my favorite. A nice location, a good value, but the thing I liked most was how I was treated by the staff. Very kind and helpful people! They went out out of their way to help me. If I am ever in Cape Town again, I will definitely stay here.
