Not a real party place, but that's not what we came here for either. Good room, nice bed, good amenities, chill staff. Just a relaxed place to stay while visiting Capetown. The pool is very small, but with great beaches to go to we didn't make use of it anyway.

The vibe in the hostel is just amazing. Contrasting to many other hostels that I have stayed in the atmosphere was very relaxed. I loved the activities the hostel offers (weekly hikes, trips to the markets, etc.) and the dinner evenings like Braai (traditional barbecue) or burger night :) The team consisting manly of intern who live in the hostel...

This place is beautiful and well taken care of. The people who work there are very friendly and helpful. It is nice that they offer so many excursions or things to do. It is not very far from the waterfront and the mall as well. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

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.

Thanks for your review! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and could enjoy all of AP's amenities. We'd love to keep our bar open later but unfortunately due to liquor license laws and for the sake of our guests who prefer a quiet night, we close at 11pm. However, as you mentioned, our location is within easy...
