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...

This place is great. Awesome, friendly people working and staying here. Safe, Comfy & Clean Good Breakfast Situated in a quieter part of Cape Town. Easy to get Uber to and from the city but might not be for all vs a long street Hostel

We had stayed in Cape Town for 2 weeks volunteering before we stayed here for one week. One of the main reasons I booked this hostel as it looked modern and relaxing with a nice pool area.

Hi Charlotte, Thanks for getting back to us. We appreciate all feedback. We have recently changed our breakfast, the feedback is still coming in. There are small adjustments that we are looking at. But we believe that it has improved greatly. Namely the filter coffee on demand during breakfast, the addition of yogurt and eggs.Whilst you still have the options...
