To call The BIG a backpackers does it a bit of a disservice as it is more a boutique B&B that also happens to have dorm rooms. But it does have all the qualities of a backpack experience - the management team (Amy and Lynda) and the rest of the staff are the friendliest, most helpful you will ever encounter. Always around at the breakfast table to help sort out an itinerary for the day or just to have a chat, it's really a home away from home sort of experience.
The ambiance at the BIG is superb - it has a relaxed, homely vibe (there is always someone to have a beer and chat with) but if you are looking for a BIG night on the town - there are also willing participants who are organising taxis and heading out. But if you want a good night's sleep without noise and chaos, that is completely possible at this wonderful spot.
One thing about the BIG that really places it above the rest is that it is extremely clean! All rooms have en suite bathrooms with fresh linen and towels provided which makes a travelling experience that much more fun and easy.
In the heart of Green Point and a stone's throw from all the action, this is the place to stay in Cape Town - I cannot recommend it enough!
