Very nice hostel with good location, nice staff, clean dorms and good breakfast. A good place to meet other solo travellers since the common area was big and events such as braii (bbq) and hike to Lions head.

Atlantic Points is wonderfully located. The room was spacious and clean. I stayed just a night because I had to go to another accomodation. But I believe it's an excelente option for those who wants to visit Cape Town for some days.

Thank you for your review! We're glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. We often replace our cups and silverware to make sure to keep everything fresh. We do ask that our guests clean there own dishes but all of it is double checked and if necessary cleaned again by our staff at the end and beginning of the day!

Very well located (Green Point), 10 mins away from Long Street and 15 mins from Camp's Bay. The place is value for money, offer decent breakfast and have cool in-hostel activities such as visits to the city, wine-tasting etc. arranged during the day and evenings. Recommended to stay here, if you're traveling solo.
