BCG is very centrally located without being too close to the hoards of tourists. It's within 5 mins walk to two metros, and 15 mins walk to Las Ramblas, the Gothic, Gracia and La Ribera. The staff are so friendly and incredibly helpful, always going out of their way to give me suggestions and help me plan my outings. The security was top-notch and I really appreciated the free lockers & locks for storing valuables. The individual bathrooms were always really clean. Awesome stay, thanks BCG!

It's in a safe neighbourhood, but relatively far from all the sights. The hostel is also a home (of the owners) so at times we felt like we were infringing on their privacy and overstaying our welcome. Also they have a beautiful kitchen, but you're not allowed to use it since it's theirs (this is the first hostel I've ever encountered where you can't cook). The owners also weren't very outgoing or helpful, though they were nice. Clean place & awesome decor/artwork, 2 adorable dalmations. Quiet.

This is objectively the best hostel in Cape Town. The staff (Wayne and Stephen) were incredibly helpful, accommodating and friendly. They were glad to answer any questions we had, set us up with tours, offer us suggestions, and arrange cabs whenever we needed. The location is also perfect. It is walking distance to Long St. (restaurants/bars) and you can see Table Mountain from the balcony. The place itself is spacious, clean and has an awesome atmosphere (& not too loud). Breakfast is included!

The rooms were very spacious, however it was really inconvenient that there were no public bathrooms and only ensuites. Since we stayed in a dorm with several people, we didn't have access to the bathroom in the morning. Our room was facing the Quays (the bar), and the windows weren't properly insulated so even with ear plugs it was very difficult to sleep because of the noise. Other than that, the location was convenient and the staff were very helpful.
