Amazing place to stay! The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are events almost every day, daily breakfast, and hostel organized tours. It is located only a few minute drive away from the city center and the waterfront. I stayed for 5 nights, and wouldn't hesitate to go back. Best hostel I've stayed in

Having stayed in multiple backpacker hostels in the past, I must emphasize that our stay at AP was the best till-date! The V&A waterfront is at walk-able distance, from where city tour buses are available every 20 minutes. The bustling part of the city including the infamous Long street is just a half-hour walk away, if you're up to it.... More

I had a room to myself and it was nice and clean. The staff was helpful and I liked that I could book tours directly through the hostel. It made the experience so much easier! It was also within walking distance to the waterfront so that was nice. All in all, good community!

Highly recommended! A perfectly clean and comfortable hostel... We stayed in the 7 bedroom dorm and it was no less than feeling at home with absolutely clean and cozy beds and a private bathroom to the dorm! Located in a quiet area at green point, the hostel is a stone's throw from all key shopping and partying areas! The staff... More

Great location very near the waterfront for Robben Island and shopping in the Victoria & Albert warehouses. Flexible accommodation with a young vibe but also more than ok for those of us no longer up for dorm life! The private rooms are in a separate building that is quiet, simple & very comfortable.
