Accommodation at Green Elephant Backpackers
We are an ideal location for visiting students, interns and Medical Electives wanting accommodation close to Groote Schuur Hospital (2 minutes walk).
We have 3 houses - the main house with our 24 hour reception, bar and swimming pool also houses our dorm rooms.
Our other houses have our quiet private rooms.
Looking to stay for a few months? - There are plenty of options from rooms in student houses to private apartments in the area. We recomend booking in with us for a week which is normally enough time to find good accommodation and view it in person.

We serve breakfasts on request at R30 per person, but recomend a stroll to Lower Main Road where you will find a host of excellent coffee shops, some with all day breakfasts where you can take in the sights and sounds of Obs (it's a hard life being a traveller in a student town). We highly recomend our themed dinners where our staff (and sometimes our guests) transform into gourmet chefs. Here are examples of the meals we offer:
Home-made dough with delicious toppings (tomatoes, onions, green pepper, mushrooms, an assortment of meats) and Mozzarella cheese.
Pasta with rich tomato & mince sauce, served with garlic bread and salad.
Chicken curry & rice
Indian style (hot!!)
South African barbeque with chicken, beef and lots of salads
Boerewors rolls & potato salad
South-African sausage rolls with Chakalaka sauce, served with potato & egg salad and green salad
