Nothing special about Atlantic Point. Super awesome location but there's a much better hostel down the street. AP is noisy in the evening, staff aren't overly friendly, bathroom needs repairs, tacky decor. Overall ambience is lacking. Good breakfast though. Ho hum place. I've stayed at better.

The location was very good. The hostel is really close to Waterfront. The staff was helpful and kind. The only problem is that the breakfast is not self-service. That's why waste of food is common. :/

This is a good option if you've just arrived in Cape Town for the first time (as I had). If you know the city, it may not be your cup of tea. Pros: + Excellent location, especially if you're new to Cape Town. + Parking can be provided for rental cars (which is incredible for Green Point), so this is...

I can't recommend this hostel enough. Very clean bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms. Lots of space. There is an in-house bar/outdoor area great for meeting other guests, and it closes at 11pm, so you can always get a great night's sleep. The staff is AWESOME, they really go above and beyond to accommodate any need and plan any activity. The location is...

It is a nice, not too big hostel. The location is great! Green point is in a residental area which is quiet at night. Just down the road are some bars and restaurants. So you don't need to go far for dinner or a drink too far. The staff is friendly. Wifi worked very well. A delicious breakfast is included...

The location is very nice, friendly and very helpful staff and they offer a lot of tours and adventures to book. Especially the Wednesday-Braai is the perfect opportunity to meet new people. The breakfast is very good and they are offering free parking spaces upon request.

I stayed at the Atlantic Point Backpackers because I wanted to be close to the center of Cape Town. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was one of best hostels I have stayed in (around the world). There is always something to do for anyone who can't decide what they want to do and the staff are very...
