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...

This Backpackers is right up there with the best we've stayed in but for one lazy tired and unhelpful employee who refused to help and treated us in a shabby manner. This unfortunate individual should be prevented from dealing with the public; especially the more mature public. Having said this we also found the young German girls working here to...

Thank you for your review. We're glad that most of our staff was able to show you a good time! It is unfortunate that one of our staff was a negative in your trip.

Clean and modern hostel. Mostly nice and helpful staff. There could be more variety for breakfast, but otherwise nothing to complain about. Good location and felt very safe, even with codes for the dorms. Enjoy my stay there!

An extremely attractive, clean and friendly hostel. It organises lots of events and it an excellent site for meeting fellow travellers, but it also has enough space in the grounds and building for people to have a little time to themselves. Excellently situated, just a minute walk from shops and bars on Main Road and a 25 minute scenic walk...
