Very Good 8.0
BIG Backpackers
BIG Backpackers is very homey-it really does feel like a home away from home. The location is really good and the staff are really cool. They have 2 nights where they take groups out on the town. The only downside is the breakfast is really basic.

Exceptional 10.0
Maybe the best hostel I been to ?
These people redefine hostel stay. Cannot believe I even made new friends. The place is neat and nice - friendly team and staff. More or less like a family. We even had a dinner together. Totally recommended. Safe, etc etc. Go for it if you are in CT and looking for a place to crash. Great washrooms, and wifi and breakfast and ..

5 star experience
5 star service at 2 star prices. We couldn't have picked a better base for our 10 nights in Cape Town. Staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible time.
