I stayed 4 nights at Atlantic Point, in their Garden Room, which I found to be the best hostel I stayed at during my travels in South Africa. The hostel itself is clean and safe with a gate that's locked at all time and accessed with a code. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and they offer a variety... More

I really enjoyed staying here. First impressions do a lot and these were maintained over the course of my stay. All very clean, very new with decent wifi. Staff had good recommendations on things to do and the hostel run events were fun. Waterfront is only 10min walk away, town being about 30min. Will stay again!

Brilliant staff, great service and good location. Very close to the v and a waterfront and good location to access tours with uber or shuttles. Great place to meet new people if you are travelling solo.

This hostel had a great atmosphere, and we wish we could have stayed a couple of nights longer to participate in some of the trips and activities coordinated by the staff. We visited the bar one evening and got a sense of how much all the guests were enjoying their stay. Our room was great - large, ensuite, clean, and... More
