Ashanti Lodge and Gardens in Cape Town totally blew me away. More of a flashpackers than a regular hostel, this is the kind of place where you will find it very difficult to find any flaws. The entire hostel is spotless and all the bathrooms are kept super clean and tidy, somewhat of an anomaly in cheap hostels! There were plenty of plug sockets in the rooms and everyone has their own light above their bed. The rooms were spacious and my dorm even had a sink so we could brush our teeth without having to walk down the corridor to the bathrooms.
