  • The Green Elephant is a wonderful place to stay in Cape Town! Staff are friendly and helpful! I had many interesting conversations with other guests in the communal lounge. I hope to return someday!

  • Staff was really helpful and friendly. The facilities were a bit rundown looking but it's super cheap so if you just need a place to crash go for it. Bathrooms were clean and there were always fun, friendly people at the outside bar. Would definitely recommend staying here at least a couple nights. Cool food, shops and music in the hood.

  • We had a great time at the Green Elephant. I loved the good atmosphere, the cozy bar, the neighborhood and the nice staff, who were gladly to help if there were anything we needed. Not the best facilities, but much more and much better than at most hostels.
