Liked: Atlantic point backpackers is just amazing. I've never stayed in a hostel quite like it. The staff and owners are very friendly and can give you great advice on what to do in Cape Town. The hostel itself is very clean and has great facilities. Its very easy to meet other international travellers in the hostel bar and TV lounge (Love the cocktail night!) The breakfast every morning was a real treat, they even have muffins and pancakes!! Thanks Tim and James for such a wonderful time!

Liked: This was the best 'hostel' I've ever stayed at. It's really more like a hotel with dorms! The staff are great & so helpful. You can book almost anything with them. There's something going on every night, movie nights, cocktail nights, BRAAI (be there on Wednesdays- amazing grub!), trips to local markets! The place is ridiculously clean, the bathrooms are immaculate. Breakfast is included, and there's everything from fruit cocktail to pancakes! I was travelling alone & it's a great place to meet new people. Location was perfect, great food places around & 5 minutes walk from the lovely waterfront. The perfect stay in Cape Town!

Disliked: Nothing- it was flawless

Liked: One of the best hostels I have been too, which is the actual reason am writing this review. The place is very safe with number coded entrances on all doors, spotlessly clean and has a great character! Nice vibrant colours and helpful staff. A good spread of breakfast in the morning, loved their pancakes :) We had two rooms in the back building, that whole area has been newly renovated. It has its own kitchen with all utensils and equipments you might need and can think of. Our rooms had a good decor, which usually you dnt tend to find in hostels.

Liked: Très sécurisé. Grande chambre très lumineuse. Lits confortables et propres. Grande salle de bain (au bout du couloir). Petit dej inclus (parfois pancakes ou muffins fait-maison, mais à l'heure tardive pour ceux qui souhaitent profiter de la journée).

Disliked: Pas de ventilateur dans la chambre (chambre à 4 en sous-sol avec deux fenetres...il faisait chaud!) Pas une seule chaise dans la chambre. Manque un peu de lumière dans la salle de bain.
