Located between Table Mountain and Three Anchor Bay, A Sunflower Stop is next to Cape Town’s Green Point Common. It has an outdoor pool and offers private and shared accommodations.
Score from 117 reviews Very good
It was a nice place, beautifully located under signal hill, nice restaurants around, easy to reach all intresting places in capetown. The room was nice, very good beds, but its better to book a room with shower. Parking was available and secured.
There was quite a bit of noise at the pool table and pool area after 11pm
Location for all ammenities
Dreen Point - good localisation close to V&A Frontwater
No internet, wi-fi for 4 days.
I liked the friendliness and comfort. There are kitchen facilities,pool and bar. Very comfortable and easy to access any part of the city from there.
Wi-fi access was inconsistent.
I liked the homey feeling
Staff not welcoming at all. Dorm and beds dusty. The place was old and dirty... It could be such an amazing place but I think owners just don't care.
had a lovely time at the blu bay met some new ppl & the free internet & wifi was very useful
the swimming pool area isn't so neat
The location of the place relative to my places of interest,the people(staff and fellow visitors). The laid back atmosphere.
The photos on the internet must have been taken YEARS ago. Shocking mattressess, and they did not have enough towels for us. The promised towels never arrived the next day either. Rate charged purely on very convenient location.
The room which we booked was double booked, we were then accommodated in another room which was very uncomfortable. We were not compensated as promised for the downgraded room and the inconvenience.
no internet connection in rooms. very poor internet connection in lobby.
The hostel is in a very convenient walking distance to Green Point and to the waterfront - and has a very friendly and inviting athmosphere
Big Blue is a great place to meet people, very good common areas, tv room, computers, bar, pool table/pingpong and the pool, all very good to regain energy to go out again! Really close to Woolworths on main road where minibus takes you every where, myCity buses also available. Go to Waterfront on foot, and you can also go the same way to long street. I will definitely return here whenever I'm in town.
Internet was sometimes difficult to access due to the amount of people connected, but having it for free is a big plus!
good value, great location, friendly staff, neat and clean room
12 year old towels
Nothing at all. The team responsible for the cleaning of the comum areas are really friendly, although the administration of the place does not seems to really care about this.
There were cockroaches in our room. The towels were really old, dirty and torn. The place is not well iluminated and to find our door key we need to use the cellphone light. Wifi does not work and the owners of the place are not so friendly.
The location and the friendliness of staff - the cleanliness of the room
The cockroaches in the showers and only one shower near the room working for several rooms
We had a private room upstairs. Comfy but basic. However it IS a backpackers and you get what you pay for :-)
Great location for this price, nice airy room with wooden floor
Kitchen area as many times in backpackers
Friendly staff, space of the bedroom, privacy, clean, good proximity to waterfront, town, near bus stop, shops, the sea.
first night i was booked into a very small bedroom with no wardrobe no table for studying a very small shower, uncomfortable to wash in. The bigger room i was in from 2nd day had no table also and a wardrobe for hanging clothes.
Cheap Good Location
The bathrooms are really really scary
Nice and helpfull staff. Clean rooms and livingroom. Big kitchen, enough space for everyone. And such a good vibe. We made our stay longer!
Though this is not the Hotel's fault, there is a lot of noise coming from the excavations nearby. Difficult to sleep. Parking is another problem
