Good place, but not too central Feb 23, 2012
We stayed at grren elephant for one night when we visited cape town.

We had a double room with a bathroom that we paid 450 rand for, so not particularly cheap, not considering the location.

The room was spottless and very cool and atmospheric. They have named the room with different themes like lion , Elephant and crocodile. In the rooms there are some really good wall painting with the animal of choice. We were in the lion room, so we were surrounded by lions on all sides.

The bed was particularly soft and amazing, or maybe that was just because we hadn't slept for 24 hours after the long flight :)

There was a communal kitchen where we could make some dinner and breakfast if we wanted.

The communal area outside the reception is quite nice, specially in the evening when they arrange pizza barbeque all-you-can-eat!

Since they could only cook one small pizza at the time, and each took 20 minutes, it really became first one to grab a piece of pizza before any of the other 12 people that had signed up for "all-you-can-eat" !

It seems that when we were there most of the other people were students at the nearby university.

It took us about one hour twenty minues to walk to the centre, so on the way back we took one of the minivans that constantly shouts for our attention.

So all in all not to bad of a place, but a bit pricey, and not very central.
