Bar far the nicest hostel I stayed in while in SA. The only thing this hostel doesnt have is Air con, apart from that you have everything else in the dormitories which are very clean and well kept. Would suggest staying in Atlantic point above all other hostels in cape town however space does get booked up very quickly and... More

This hostel accommodates groups as well as those who like privacy (like me) at budget rates for a city like Cape Town. The staff provides breakfast in one of the cleanest hostel kitchens I have ever seen. They also provide good travel advice, and can arrange tours as well. We stayed here for one week in January 2015, and came... More

This place is what you'd expect it to be based on the very good reviews. I had an en suite room which was spotless. The staff is friendly and the location is very good -- a ten min walk to the waterfront. Breakfast is standard for a hostel. The room doesn't provide any basics such as soap by the sink,... More

Superb hostel in Capetown. Great location, clean rooms/toilets and friendly staff. Close to Waterfront/Robben Island and FIFA World Cup Stadium. Breakfast with pancakes! Unfortunately I could only stay one night so book in advance.

I would definitely recommend this hostel to my friends! The hostel provides a lot of activities (e.g. mzoli's on sunday) and the stuff is very friendly and helpful. I felt safe in the area (solo female traveller) and it is really easy to get in contact with new people.

This hostel/backpackers was the best decision! I didn't know the areas of CT before I went there, and this area (Green Point) was lovely - residential, close to the waterfront (where there is a Sightseeing bus stop), and an easy walk from the city center. I passed several of the other hostels on my travels around the city and I... More

This hostel is like the second home. All the common area is very comfy and cozy. There a very nice and party bar. Ask for a shot of springbok. Ever Wednesday they cook a braai, a traditional South African barbecue and a lot of delicious food. The stuff is the best. Very friendly, lovely and talkative. Do not hesitate to... More

Welcome staff is really nice and helpfull. Clean, nice and friendly backpackers ! Less noisy than Longstreet backpackers, and close to Waterfront ! I recommend it to any kind of trips you are doing in Cap Town.
