The room was colourful, clean, tidy and spacious. The pool and outdoor area was quirky and a great place to chill out. The place is a little bit away from the city centre, but surrounded by beautiful views. There is plenty of public transport though if you don't have a car.

Spent three nights at Elements and were happy with the proximity to Cape Town and all sights we were wanting to see. Our private room was very clean and having our own bathroom was an added bonus. The pool in the backyard was perfect for a quick dip and the braai/patio area was our nightly hang out/dinner spot. There is...

My stay at Elements Guest House was very nice. The house is kept quite clean and there is a lovely pool and grassy area behind the house for guests to relax. The house is not the biggest (especially if you are staying in a dorm room), but it is very cozy and welcoming. The owners are very friendly and helpful...

We arrived at Elements, expecting a real backpackers environment with not the best quality of rooms but we were pleasantly surprised at how nice the apartment we had was, not as one would expect for a backpackers. The owners are very nice, and they have a lovely pool and garden. We were very surprised and would definitely recommmend Elements to...

I spend 38 days in dorm room and 3 days in single room at Elements. The dorm rooms are really small and you share them with 3 other persons (2 shelf spaces, bunk beds) but they are really good value for money and you get a special deal for being a SANCCOB volunteer. A good stay for a month but...

This guesthouse is in a good area, but the effort that went into the rooms and bathrooms are shocking. We had to buy our own pillows, as theirs were very old and thin. There were no wardrobes to hang your clothes and the walls could do with a new coat of paint. The communal kitchen was really dirty. If you...

It makes us very sad to hear that you were not satisfied with your rooms. Our lodge is a self-catering accommodation and it is cleaned carefully 7 days a weeek. The communal kitchen is cleaned first thing in the morning at 9 am and if it is used afterwards by some guests who don`t tidy up after the usage it...

We so enjoyed staying at Elements Lodge. Stefan and Anya were so helpful and convivial, with lots of suggestions. The nicest people stay there and we spent several evenings whiling away the hours with fascinating and friendly fellow guests. Several of the guests are hard working volunteers for a local penguin rehab facility which you can tour if you like....
