The Atlantic Point hostel crossed off the basics--clean, secure and well located--with ease. The staff was very helpful and friendly. And it is just one of those hostels that attracts a good crowd of people. Most were more interested in chill social evenings in the bar area and making the most of the daytime adventures (vs. getting wasted at the... More

@gburjm, Thanks for sharing your experience. We do see that most of our guests year round are out exploring the Cape during the day, and enjoy a few quiet drinks in the bar or terrace at night. We enjoy our BRAAI night every Wednesday :) We dont promote ourselves as a "party" hostel. But there is certainly enough nearby bars... More

The Atlantic Point Backpackers Hotel has to be the best backpackers I have ever been to! Tim and his team are incredibly generous and superb in their work. The rooms are spacious, the food is plentiful and the ease of access cannot be beaten! I would thoroughly recommend staying their if you are ever in Cape Town.

We stayed in october 2014 for 3 nights. It has a good location near all the things to do in Cape town. Mike and Jess offer us a nice welcom and gave us a lot off information when we ask them for it, whitout push us to take a tour with them. We liked that. Twin rooms were good and... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks in September and loved the city and hostel so much I ended up booking an extra 2 and a half weeks! I've been travelling since April and can honestly say this is one of the best hostels I've come across. Rooms: I ended up staying in a few different rooms over the duration of... More

I more than enjoyed my stay here. It was such a warm and friendly atmosphere on top of being super neat and clean. Their included breakfast was a major selling point! Super close (walking distance if you don't mind it) to the waterfront. They also had affordable cab services on call.

We booked in for 4 nights, in the dorm room - we only lasted one because it was so noisey! The dorm we were in was clean and spacious but right beside the kitchen/dining area where people talk and drink until the early hours which it makes it near impossible to sleep. My advice, get the private room! Thankfully we... More

We stopped here in this beautiful hostel for 3 nights and loved every bit of it. Very clean. Breakfast was good. Within walking distance from the Waterfront where we ate well. Enjoyed the pancakes. We had a beautiful, modern and clean Delux dble bed private ensuite downstairs. They have some beautiful plants in this part of the hostel.

Cozy, easy to reach, not fra from waterfront and sightseeing bus station. We stayed there for 4 nights, and we enjoyed the simple breastfast, pancake and fruits served at 8 am There are tools in the kitchen, we made a meal at the first evening. Anyway, we would stay there again if we come again.

What can I say about the AP? Well it was my first time in a hostel and I was pretty impressed upon my arrival. It was exceptionally clean with comfortable beds. The rooms are great and all in their own unique style. What was great for me in my late 30's (shhh) is that the age group was diverse. Breakfasts... More

This place was excellent. Probably the cleanest hostel/guesthouse I've stayed at anywhere. I would definitely consider going back if I find myself in Cape Town again, and I hope to go to Cape Town again in the near future. What I like about this place was the breakfast offering, and the fact that it wasn't necessarily a place for younger... More
