    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The staff are amazing! So friendly and helpful! The breakfast is really good, a great selection of cereals, fruit, toast and eggs. Location is great just a short walk to the waterfront and everywhere else is a short Uber ride away. The beds are really comfy and the rooms are really spacious. Also lots of communal areas to relax in. The hostel also organises nights out and it’s a really social and friendly place to stay. Will definitely come back!

    Located close to the stadium & V&A-Waterfront, walking distance to downtown (which was quite safe in my eyes). Staff very friendly at any time It's quite a small hostel - you'll get to meet the other travelers quite soon. The hostel staff can organize day activities (city-tour, shark-diving etc.) for the nights there are some social events (cooking, braii...) Very cool place - but not a party hostel - a very good place to spend some great days in CT

    The B.I.G is in an excellent location, just a 10 minute walk to the V&A Waterfront. And an easy uber ride to just about anywhere else you'd like to go. The staff, especially Judy and Tyler, are amazing. Super welcoming and helpful on all fronts. We did notice a few staff being rude to the cooks and cleaners of the kitchen, who were nothing but kind to all of the visitors. The pictures of the hostel are on point. Super clean and easy. Pretty down to Earth. The place is well protected as well.
