Well worth the money. AP is located within walking distance to V&A Waterfront, the Stadium, Sea Point, and other tourist attractions. A short uber ride to all other attractions in Cape Town. Would stay here again.

Stayed here last week on the first night of our honeymoon. As we were staying only 2 nights and are returning to CT at the end of our stay we said we'd stay somewhere more inexpensive to start. Absolutely charming and friendly backpackers. Had a private en suite room. WiFi is great and called our uber from here to get...

Best place to enjoy CT. Its home away from home. Good staff and most of all nice place to meet new people with exciting ideas. The view from my window and the terrace just priceless. I highly recommended AP for backpackers visiting CT. Thank you.

The hostel is clean and confortable. The only bad thing is that the bar closes very early and is always empty. The location is great. A walking distance to the waterfront and the city center and it's a safe area.

Atlantic Point Backpacker is a very awesome place, they have friendly staff and it is located in the best location, close to restaurants and shops and easy to get taxi. The rooms are awesome. It was definitely worth it.

No batteries in the safe case. We asked for them and became no answer. We needed badic information and they couldn't help us. Good location. Room ok. Swimming pool not very clean. Breakfast very good.

My sister had been working in Cape Town prior to my arrival so when I flew out to meet her we shared a twin room. The room was perfect and actually one of the comfiest beds I think I have ever slept on! The staff could not do enough for you and even went the extra mile, running free events...

I can't really provide more details about things like staff service or any of the guest activities offered as I just checked in and did my own thing whilst there, though my brief interactions with staff had a professional and positive vibe. Just dropped my bags in the 8 bed dorm and got out and about, so can't say much...
