If you want a clean comfortable hostel that has staff that will take a keen interest in ensuring you have the best possible time in Cape Town then this is the hostel for you!
I stayed at 3 hostels whilst in Cape Town (pre-booked) and this was miles better than the other two.
The only downside is Greenpoint is a little distance from most of the happenings in the city (Long and Kloof street bars and restaurants). but if you don't mind the R40 taxi fare then it's worth the commute.
Also, unlike most backpackers that have several common areas, the BIG has a great TV room, so if you're home early one night or trying to decide what to do for the day there's always other people to chat to.
The dorm beds all have a table and a plug at each bed which makes it's easy to charge your electronics while you sleep and not have to worry about a Sneaky Sam nicking your things
