Reviewed November 14, 2013

It was my first time at a backpackers place and I was apprehensive about the idea at first. By the time I left Atlantic Point after my 5 night stay realized it was a fantastic idea! I stayed in a 4 shared bed room. The rooms are clean, the staff are really friendly and helpful. I slept very well because the place is nice and quiet, plus I had loads of fun with the staff and other backpackers since they have these daily planned activities to make your stay a little more interesting :) Atlantic Point is nicely located in the beautiful Green Point district, near the V&A Waterfront.

Thanks Atlantic Point - I'll definitely be back!

Stayed for 5 days with my gf in dbl room, and had great time. The setting of the hostel is really nice, staff is polite and professional,modern/minimal style of the interior. The neighborhood is close to waterfront, and is safe to walk around. There's nice places to eat/go out near Atlantic Point. Would definitely stay at the hostel the next time when we come to Cape Town.

I was super impressed with everything about the Atlantic Point, the staff was extremely helpful, rooms were clean, bedding was comfortable, fun activities, great location and excellent price to boot. I stayed with a friend as our first stop in Africa, and we hadn't planned much for our stay in Cape Town. The staff was very helpful in planning reasonable priced outings for us and the other guests were very friendly and we ended up linking up to do some sightseeing with them as well.

We stayed in a private room, and when a third person joined us after a few days they added another bed for a small fee. Breakfasts were delicious -- fresh muffins baked daily while we were there! And within easy walking distance of tons of restaurants and the V&A Waterfront. Short minibus or taxi ride to Kloof Street for going out, and easy to share a ride with other guests to save on $$ too.

Couldn't recommend it more!

I have done a lot a travelling in my life and stayed in numerous backpackers all over the world.
Atlantic Point is by far the best that I have had the pleasure of staying in! Firstly, booking my accommodation was quick and easy and then they went out of their way to give me numerous transportation options from the airport to suit all budgets. The staff is extremely friendly and professional and the Backpackers is ideally located close to everything in Cape Town. The accommodation itself is clean and tidy, very modern and kitted out with all the extras that one would expect to have. The breakfast is fantastic and if you don’t want to eat in then there is the Waterfront and a host of other restaurants a stone’s throw away. The security in the complex is brilliant and I felt very safe and comfortable.
Don’t bother to look anywhere else in Cape Town for accommodation! Atlantic Point Backpackers is world class!

Room Tip: Go for the private ensuite rooms!

The best hostel I've ever been. The staff is very friendly and helpful in every way. Everything is perfectly clean. They have a system of door codes so it's easy to came back late without bothering anyone. The location is one of the best in town. Just blocks away from the waterfront. An area full of restaurants and bars. One thing I'd like to share is that there is no parking inside the hostel, even though it was advertised. We had to park outside, but it was perfectly safe.
