Moses and David were extremely helpful throughout the whole trip. They helped me arrange transport to and from the Digs and advised me on what to do around town. David gave me a tour of the local attractions and I always felt he was ready to help at every point during my stay. I would highly recommend Southern Ambition to anyone visiting Cape Town.

David has helped me a lot to organize the right room and it seemed to him a great concern that I feel completely at ease. I really found a place that I call home!

Place was great, super chilled out, but I never really spent too much time there due to my University work. Very welcoming, have never been anywhere with such a warm welcome, definitely recommend staying there.

From the start we felt so welcome! Had a great time with some of the other people in the house. If we go back to CPT we would definitly choose Southern Ambitions again. The only downside was waking up really early to the shrieking sound of the train breaks.
