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. We wanted somewhere we could just chill before we set off on our next travel to Asia. On arrival it seemed to look...

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...

I was there for only one night but it was a perfect acommidation. A perfect place with a lot of Bars and restaurants around the hostel. Good wlan, a nice breakfast with fresh fruits and fresh juices. The rooms and the bathroom are good too.

At night, I asked at the reception for a glass of water to take a medicine. I was told that they don'[t sell bottle of spring water, and that they don't have even a glass of water to give me. This is a shame, and it is unbelievable that one of the highest rated hostel in Africa can't get you...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that our reception was not more helpful. There is no excuse on our end to not be more receptive to simple requests like that and perhaps there was a misunderstanding as I can't imagine our staff which is often the highlight of guests stays ever being so rude. Especially as we do...

Very good amenities at this hostel in the staff was nice. Unfortunately the staff smiles was not really genuine. Nevertheless this hostel is very fun with activities to do the staff everyday. Although I will come back again this hostel can work on the staff being truly nice and not Faking It

The Atlantic Backpackers was a nice place to stay and feel at home during two weeks. The location is great, really close to a supermarket and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. There are a lot of offers by the included travel company.

The staffs were kind but I think It was quite expensive for 8 beds Female dorm compare to other hostels. Good breakfast, good quality, safe, but the location from waterfront is not that close. (on foot 15-20 minutes)

You'll have to come back and take part in our different activities we provide daily. Having the space and location we do allows us easy access to everywhere in the city as well as the ability to have car parks, big spaces and awesome common rooms to meet people.
