Great location, shops and restaurants are close by (try Nü). Thanks to Kumi in reception for the friendly welcome and the advice on where to go!
Some staff unhappy and came across as abrupt and rude, huge effort to assist us.
We liked the location and the all the restaurants around the corner
Bare necessities like cutlery, kitchen utensils, drinking glasses were the bare minimum to none existent. Some of it was of the lowest quality - chipped mugs, NO glasses etc. For a backpackers that does not serve meals (apart from a optional breakfast cereal) the utensils necessary for its occupants to self-cater is absolutely far below the minimum standard.
Location excellent. Relatively clean.
Friendly people and cleanliness of the place
Some maintenance is required to the building and would make it look much better inside
Reception is excellent always there to assist you.
The hostel was booked for a stay by a group of three young artists from Zimbabwe. They discovered that the hotel treated them with disregard and condescension, clearly on the basis of race. For example, when they needed to change rooms, hostel staff entered their room without permission, so on return they found their luggage and possessions like laptops lying in the corridor. The staff and management were at pains to make them feel uncomfortable e.g. turning off the common room light, when they were playing pool, without asking them if they were finished and making suggestion about what people like "them" can and can't afford to eat or do.
location and price
food , beaches .
We enjoyed our stay. The place is nothing special but the people working there are quite a trip and the guests at the time were also amazing.
showers toilets lighting smell of smoking all over dry wall in between my room and next room was very thin
room was okay
The place can get a bit noisy because It's a old wooden house, with thon walls but we fell asleep fine with earplugs :)
Awesome location, nice place, cool staff.
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
No internet, wi-fi for 4 days.
Dreen Point - good localisation close to V&A Frontwater
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.
the swimming pool area isn't so neat
had a lovely time at the blu bay met some new ppl & the free internet & wifi was very useful
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
Internet was sometimes difficult to access due to the amount of people connected, but having it for free is a big plus!
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.
