The location of the hostel was great and the people were nice. My only qualm would be that you're paying a little extra compared to other hostels in the area solely for the social aspect of the hostel. If you're traveling alone and want to meet people to hang out with and party, then it's definitely worth the extra few bucks. But if you have your own plan and don't necessarily need people to guide you around, then there are other places that offer similar, if not better, facilities to stay in.

The B.I.G Backpackers, located in the Green Point area of Cape Town is a fantastic facility. The rooms are very comfortable and are thoroughly cleaned every day. Surprisingly, for a hostel, the staff even makes up the beds each day! There is ample parking available with a secured, fenced lot and overflow on the street. The neighbourhood felt very safe and secure so street parking was fine. The house itself is also secure and there is always someone at the front desk monitoring the property.
Every morning, a selection of fruits and cereals was made available, along with tea and coffee. Eggs were also provided for traveller who wanted to cook up their own breakfasts. A large common table was great for travellers to meet and mingle. Staff were always on hand to make sure everyone had some sort of plan for exploring Cape Town every day. For people who were undecided, the staff would make suggestions based on the interests of each person. In all, we stayed at The B.I.G Backpackers for 6 days and were sad to leave it.

Excellent area to explore CT with good mix of restaurants & supermarket nearby. Short walk to V&A waterfront. Communal kitchen too small for number of guests & not very clean. Great wifi & helpful staff to organise tours. Small rooms & noisy but not in them very much as there is too much to explore in this fab city.
