Welcome to Ashanti Greenpoint Backpackers

Newer and super stylish, Ashanti Backpackers Green Point offers an elegant alternative for travellers looking for quieter, more private accommodation in Cape Town.  All rates now include breakfast!

Green Point is celebrated for its vibrant nightlife and is also within walking distance are the V&A Waterfront and iconic Cape Town Stadium, yet a short distance to the city centre itself.

Building on the unrivalled reputation and experience of Ashanti Gardens, the Green Point hostel shows the same attention to detail with superb facilities, outstanding service and excellent security.

A variety of accommodation options are available, from backpacker dorms to private en-suite bedrooms; and all are equipped with overhead fans, heaters, fluffy white duvets, individual reading lights and personal safes. All the private rooms also have towels and satellite televisions.

An inviting swimming pool, comfortable lounge/ TV room and a drink at reception are some of the relaxing communal areas on offer. Breakfast can be ordered if you so desire, but a fully equipped kitchen is available for self-catering. You can even make use of the barbeque (braai) if you fancy cooking in a more South African style.

Greenpoint Backpacker Accommodation Options


We have great double en-suite rooms that are fully serviced daily with fresh towels supplied. All of these rooms also have individual electronic safes for your added security. These rooms are newly built and have interesting features. Double beds only.



All these 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!



We sell all of the above rooms with single occupancy so you may be lucky and get a big double bed just for you!



As with all Cape Town Backpacker hostels, the dorm is where it is at – offering you the perfect opportunity to meet that travel companion for a hike up Table Mountain together. Some of our rooms sleep 6 and some sleep 8 and we also have female-only rooms for the girls!
