Big Blue is very close to the V&A and have a few restaurants and a woolworths within a minutes walk from them. They have free wifi and computers for which helps. a bar and a pool which is convenient for lazy days. The showers / toilets however need renovating. Not the most clean or comfortable ones at all, Security during the day is not an issue but i did have one night where there were people in the building walking around that doesn't stay there and there was mass confusion around this.

I felt safe in the room (all girls). Didn't hang out around the hostel. It's very old and in need of renovations. It's not cheap enough for the lack of quality. The place looks battered. But the dorms look ok. Beds not comfy. Pillows not comfy.

nice clean hostel with a great location close to the waterfront and the long street. The stuff in the Hostel wasn´'t really helpful so you have to plan and book everything yourself.
