4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Me and my friend stayed at AP for a week. The place is really awsome! The staff is nice, and the people we met were all filled with enthusiasm for adventures! :) We had our own private room with en-suite bathroom, and hot water! The breakfast is nice (you need to be there early if you want to enjoy all... More

When you leave Atlantic Point you will do so with sad eyes that take up residence neighboring to a broad smile, a countenance which only exists on the other side of the horizon just beyond a happiness in full blossom. Mike, Jessica, Alicia, Fiona, Julia, Hylton, Cabel, and Francisco are a team of architects of elation that will erect in... More

Do you know that magical hostel that you stay for a while but still come back to hang out because it's so cool? If no you should visit Atlantic Point. Lovely staff, great service. They make sure you are taken care of. Big lockers with plugs, comfy beds, free breakfast, good bar. Possibly the best hostel I have ever stayed... More

I booked in for 4 nights from sept 9-13, first night (Tuesday) the noise from the bar area went beyond 10.30pm and was roudy. I asked the staff on duty (Franciosci) at 10.55pm if this was normal and he replied with a yes plus announced to the entire group in the pool area that I had complained. He was also... More

Stayed here August 19-26 in an 8 bed dorm. The vibe at this hostel is very chilled out and relaxing. The manager and staff are all awesome and very happy to help with tour suggestions and arranging fun days out! The staff really get involved with the guests and making sure everyone is having a good time - including the... More

Nice, a very good hostel. We went twice. Thanks to all the staff. The location is excellent, near Waterfront of Cape Town, near High Road so You can go spesdy out of the town. You can meet nice people, students and so on.

Atlantic Point is a very good hostel. I really enjoyed my stay there. It was a great atmosphere, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms, bathroom and the kitchen was very clean. Just a few steps away from the V&A Waterfront it´s a perfect place to stay in Cape Town.

I stayed in a double room, which was clean but the carpet smelled a bit funny so I left the double doors open for air. Really big, shiny bathroom and shower. The breakfast is tasty and included in the price. The three girls working at reception were friendly and one of them let me borrow her adaptor during my stay.... More

The people that work are so lovely and kind. You can eat a complete breakfast with crepes, jam, butter, fruit ... The hostel is near a supermarket... More

I've had a favourite backpackers for about 5 years (in Silom, Bakgkok). It's brilliant fun, clean, efficient. But I've had to edge it into second place. Atlantic Point is a new level. Loved the atmosphere, just a few steps away from the coolest part of Green Point, amazing food at the Wednesday braai. This is my new HQ for trips... More
