Overview

The Green Elephant is the closest hostel to Groote Schuur Hospital, in the heart of Observatory, where University of Cape Town (UCT) students from all around the world live and meet each other.
The attractions are pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, a golf driving range, the original Observatory, Groote Schuur Hospital ( where the world's first heart transplant took place, theatres and small art galleries. The annual Obs Festival is held on the first Saturday in December.

It is well placed for a base in Cape Town while you enjoy the benefits the Cape has to offer. Being in a student area, the pubs are full of young people and prices are low ! It is not as expensive other Cape Town nightlife areas.

We have 3 houses - the main house with all the facilities, a room house with private rooms and the long stay house where guests stay for as long as several months.


Our guests range from backpackers for a few nights to students and interns who stay for weeks or months.

We have accommodation for short and long term stays, you can book for a few days and use us as a base for finding long term accommodation or stay for months.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Rates are deemed correct at time of publication and may fluctuate depending on supply and demand. Establishments maintain their rates online and any differences should be referred to the Establishment's staff. Quotations once accepted are binding.
