Backpackers, Lodge and Guesthouse Accommodation

Backpackers Gardens

Located at the foot of Table Mountain, Ashanti Lodge Backpackers Gardens is your gateway to Cape Town. Well-known for our superb facilities, outstanding service and excellent security this backpackers hostel is the fun, friendly, effortless way to discover the Cape….and more! Within walking distance of the city centre we cater for accommodation needs from camping and backpacker dormitories to single, double and twin rooms with shared bathroom facilities. We’ve refurbished our gorgeous Victorian mansion, so as well as clean, comfortable rooms you’ll also find a number of handy innovations like individual reading lights, personal safes and international plug points. Chill next to our sparkling pool, in our landscaped garden or on any of our spacious balconies – or join the party in our legendary Kumasi Café/Bar with its cool cocktails and fabulous mountain views. Our giant TV shows all the major sporting events – or set up your own match over our pool table. You can also get delicious meals in our bar, or you can cater for yourself in our well-equipped communal kitchen.



For those of you who just love the outdoors and carry your home on your back, no need to come in as we have a small campsite just for you. Obviously, you can make use of all the lodge facilities but please bear in mind that it is just a small piece of ground and space is limited. No reservations for the campsite permitted – first come, first served.

Double and Twins

Double and Twins

Most of these rooms are around our swimming pool – perfect for an early morning wake up dip. All rooms have their own basins and there are sufficient nearby bathrooms for your use. A double is equipped with a double bed and a twin room has two single beds. Boring we know, but necessary information for some! These are known as our standard double or twin rooms.



The single rooms are exactly the same as our doubles and twins talked about before, yet you pay the single room rate for being alone in the room.
