Nice place to stay in Cape Town. A lot of people and other backpackers. Very safe area, close to the main road, markets, restaurants and Waterfront. Helpful staff.
Small toilets and bathrooms. In the main area there is bad cigarettes smells from the bar. Basic breakfast.
Big Blue is absolute value for money. We always book them when we travel to Capetown. Located in the heart of the city with great variety of cultures and people from all over the world.
It's such a relaxed atmosphere, super friendly, employees and will do what they can to accommodate your needs. They also have a cat and super friendly, dog, which was one of the highlights of staying there. 10min walk fro. V&A waterfront, safe to walk to during the day. And, there are so many restaurants. I would hihgly, recommend this place. Oh, you also get breakfast.
Place smelt like smoke when you walked in the front door because the common hangout area where people smoke is right by doors close to the bar and front entrance of place. Otherwise, the place is PERFECT.
The staff, animals(including the people). Comfy beds and spacious showers. Super friendly and vibrant colorful interior.
