    OHMYWORD I can't rave enuff about AP !!!!! The staff are INCREDIBLY HELPFUL...such wonderful service. I fell off my scooter and Emma helped me carry my HUGE bag upstairs. They really really go above and beyond... The dorm rooms are clean clean clean...their covid protocols are very comforting. Loved hanging out at the pool....I could carry on and on!!!

    Brilliant hostel. Free breakfast which is really enjoyable and nice staff activities (e.g. Lion's head sunrise hike). This place is a lot bigger than it may seem at first due to very good building structure. Spent 3 weeks in total and this is by far the best hostel I have ever been to.

    Great hostel! Good location & friendly staff. We stayed in the 6 bed dorm in the loft and there was so much space which made for a great stay. The breakfast is massive (yoghurt, muesli, fruit, toast, muffin, coffee) & we generally found we'd end up taking the fruit or muffin with us for the day as we couldn't eat it all!

    The only place backpackers should be staying at in Cape Town right now. Normally this place is full to the brim, but while COVID reduces the amount of travelers at Atlantic Backpackers it's just the perfect amount to meet new friends every night. They take COVID measures seriously, while still managing to keep the bar lively, running and a place to meet cool people.

    This hostel is very agreeable. The staff is available and efficient, the included breakfast very generous. The common areas are welcoming and very friendly. The location is quite convenient: it is easy to walk from there to the waterfront or to the city centre. There are a couple of nice restaurants nearby as well.

    Good location. Feels safe as it is off the main road, but not too far from it. Good restarants and good supermarkets (Spar and Woolworths) nearby. Helpful staff and quite friendly. Can get a bit crowded with cliquey long-term stayers but are friendly. Free breakfast is generous amount. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are kept clean. Overall, a very good place to stay for cheap.

    The property is greatly located and is near most of the shops and restaurants. However, if you're looking for some peace and quite it is not ideal. Residents had a party beyond the stipulated times.

    This hostel was very disappointing. We booked for new years looking for some form of atmosphere or direction from staff for what was going on for New Years. Instead, staff were busy getting ready and drinking together. The bar was rarely attended. The bathroom in our “en-suite” room (I wouldn’t call it an en-suite if there’s a shared hallway connecting it) was pretty gross for two seasoned hostel guests. We did enjoy the hostels location for places to eat and the breakfast. The car was cool
