    Great hostel, with lovely staff, clean rooms, comfy beds. Good location, walking distance to Waterfront and plenty of bars and shops nearby. Kitchen is well stocked to cook yourself. Really enjoyed my stay here, one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in.

    Atlantic Point was such good value for money and had a really good atmosphere. They’re great at organising group events and I participated in a few. There were a fair few solo travelers there too, not just me so that was good. The breakfast was great and the place was super clean, they also had good fridge space for food and the kitchen looked well equipped. Staff were lovely; would highly recommend!

    I had a good stay at Atlantic Bay Backpackers. My room was upgraded upon arrival, for no extra charge. I was put in a 4 bed room, very clean with lockers and good shower facilities. There is a dining area and kitchen, together with large refrigerators. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the hostel is well situated, easy walking distance to the V@A, and minutes from restaurants, cafes and shops. My room was on the lowest level and WiFi reception was not good there, upstairs it was fine!

    The hostel was fantastic. Lovely breakfast, very clean and excellent security. I enjoyed the location as it was away from the craziness of long street but close to the waterfront. The staff are super helpful and kind! Although it was low season and there wasn’t many around, I still met amazing people there! Big thank you!

    This hostel was generally very good, with awesome staff, but there were a few minor things that definitely took away from the experience. Load shedding is a fact of life in SA right now, and this hostel has no way of dealing with it other than just letting you sit there in the dark. No generator, no lamps that run on batteries, and very few candles (only in the common room) mostly just darkness every night. Also lockers require own locks, and they don’t have/sell locks.
