The location is really good, it is near the Waterfront and there is a supermarket a few meters away. The staff is very attentive and helpful. Accommodations are comfortable and the bathrooms are always clean. I recommend doing at least one of the tours organized by the hostel.

Thanks for your review! We're happy you could enjoy the location and the cleanliness. We're sorry that the room was hot, depending on the time of year Cape Town's heat can be oppressive but working on improving the temperature control will certainly something we look into although all rooms are equipped with fans and access to windows.

The hostel are near to most of the touristic attractions of Cape Town and restaurants. Clean, safe and the services are perfect. They have a parking lot (if you rent a car) and tours (if you decide use public transportation).

We only stayed one night but it was very nice as we stayed in a very nice double room. Good breakfast, perfect location, nice staff and clean facilities. Only ten minutes to the Waterfront and twenty minutes to Long Street.

The second we arrived we knew we made an excellent choice. We were greeted by Emma who remembered all 10 of our names for the duration of the holiday which made the whole thing so personable. They couldn't do more to accommodate us. It's a great location, 15 minute walk to the waterfront. Clean, nicely furnished, big bathrooms and felt...

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.

Thank you for your review. Glad you could enjoy our recently updated breakfast! We're sorry to hear you found other areas of our hostel lacking. We are often noisy in the evening due to events or our active craft stocked bar, however, we do shut down at 11 in order to let everyone looking to relax, relax. We're sorry that...

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. :/
