The Backpackers in Green Point (or “B.I.G” for short) is excellently located; nestled just below Signal Hill on a peaceful street with a short walk to the vibrant V&A Waterfront, Cape Town Stadium, the CBD and some of the best shops, restaurants, clubs and bars. Table Mountain, as well as the breath-taking Clifton and Camps Bay beaches are just a short taxi-ride away. Our dedicated and friendly staff are committed to making sure everything runs smoothly during your stay: no task is too big or too small; and they’ll even take you their favourite undiscovered local hotspots if you’re lucky!

    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💛
