    The BIG Backpackers is possibly the best hostel I think I have and will ever stay in. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming. We love how the place is pristine and homely in its furnishing. There were special efforts put in by staff to orientate guests like us to Capetown. This is really the best place to stay in Capetown, it’s value for money, safe and homely! I already miss the BIG Backpackers and wish I had stayed longer with them!

    Instantly had activities to join as soon as I landed! Was a bad weather weekend but it didn’t stop anyone from enjoying the trip and making the most out of Cape Town. Backpackers and staff were friendly. Rooms were very clean. It was a perfect jump off location. Nice walk to city center and short Uber to waterfront. Was even offered a shower after checkout. This place is priceless💛

    A fantastic hostel for a lone or group traveller wishing to discover Cape Town and it’s surroundings. The staff were superb providing great advice on activities in both rain and shine, while the African dinner at the hostel was a great additional experience to the overall stay. Very nice interior and atmosphere.
