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
Wifi doesn´t reach the upper floor properly. Doesn´t have a parking at all, so you have to leave your car on the street at your own risk
We had a small double room on the first floor and it was relatively comfortable the sheets were clean and the room good sized. The hotel is well located an easy 10mn walk from the water front and quite safe at night which is more than a luxury in cape town. For low budget travelers it's more than what you can expect for such a small price !
Cleanliness of showers & toilets, dirty bar and outdoor area, filthy kitchen, most of the guests were contractors who work in SA not backpackers. Stayed for 6 nights, room was not cleaned once and no fresh towels, had to them wash ourselves.
Nice quiet hostel, good walking distance to the waterfront and the city centre.
I have stayed for four nights there. Staff are extremely helpful and kind. Convenient facilities like computer room, ATM etc, comfortable beds, hot and clean showers and toilets. Easy walk into city center and waterfront! Peaceful and quiet surroundings, but few minutes walk to a supermarket and restaurants and shopping places. When I come back to SA, I will stay here again!
The wireless doesn't extend to the bedrooms.
We stayed here for five days and we really enjoyed it! Staff was really nice and helpful, facilities were clean and comfortable beds. It's a ten minute walk to the waterfront and there are a lot of bars and restaurants around.
mattress needs replacing as it gave me a backache. they could not find my online booking, luckily i printed out my confirmation.
The location. The staff are nice and helpful. The cat
The room is very cold in winter.
no wifi in the room
The quietness of the place
