    breakfast was great! Staff was nice

    no shops and restaurants in the surrounding is pretty inconvenience commission of booking any activities is pretty expensive, better book it yourself

    The staff was incredibly helpful. They were able to sit me down and give me a detailed account of everything to do in the area. The rooms were so clean, and the location was great. Very easy to get around, and I felt very safe. They also have a nice selection of movies for rainy days :)

    If you have the opportunity the stay at BIG backpackers then consider yourself lucky. The facilities are wonderful. The entire place operates like a home. It's comfortable and warm. They have a library room for quiet time, a TV room and a great big open kitchen that provides a great space to meet other travelers. But if you stay here for any reason, stay here for the staff. I have never witness individuals work so hard to make sure that you are taken care. Yes, they book tours, take your laundry and check you in. But they go above and beyond to make sure that you looked after. If that means giving you advice on how to plan the rest of the trip or restaurants that they like going to. These people truly care. You get so much more than a bed at BIG you get true South African hospitality and these guys do it best.

    Best hostel I've ever stayed. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. In the evenings it always felt like coming home. The "braai nite" in the hostel is also very funny :)

    Personal war ausgesprochen freundlich und sehr,sehr hilfsbereit. You feel like comming home, when you stay there - it's very familiar. It's just the best place to stay, when you want to visit Capetown. Go there, you wont regret it :o) :o) ...

    The kindness of the staff, their availability to book things for you, their great recommendations on things to do and to see... The location is great too, and the accommodation itself is very cute, clean and comfortable. Great common space.

    Very little to dislike...

    Liked everything. Beautiful and very modern. Very good ideas. Very nice staff. Very helpfull people, just a bedbug/other problem with something in or on my husband's bed that bit him on his whole body. Will have to visit a doctor to determine the exact cause. Did report it to staff, who replaced a blanket. Thanks, it was great!

    The people from BIG are amazing and make you feel at home. When you Dont know what to do just ask and they'll come up with something!

    Its a very quiet place at night, wich It great when you want to sleep, but when you don't you have to go out early.

    Never stayed anywhere where the staff were so willing to help and knowledgeable, the place is amazing also. Close enough to the waterfront and central Cape Town to be convenient but far enough away to have its own chilled atmosphere. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
