    Best hostel I've ever been so far. Perfect location, very clean and rooms are cozy. The best about this hostel: People!! They're all very friendly at the reception, willing to help you with whatever you have questions about. Judy and Rob are the sweetest girl in South Africa and I'll always remember them!

    I'd wish that all cities had a hostel like BIG Backpackers. It is truly your home away from home. As a solo traveler it is soo easy to meet and hang out with other travelers. You meet guests of all ages, but during my stay they were mostly 25+, which was perfect.

    Great location, although a bit overpriced for Cape Town! Lots to do and see in Cape Town. Staff were hit and miss based on mood; however, overall very accommodating & friendly. SIM card amenity was fantastic, although it would have been nice to have free bath soap for the cost of lodging. Highly recommend joining hostel activities too!
