My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room at B.I.G just a few days ago. I want to start this review by saying this place is GREAT and has every little extra you could ask for in a backpackers- staff super friendly and willing to help, great free breakfast, free wifi that is fast and covers all areas, towels provided, clean rooms. The only thing I would say about this backpackers is its extremely expensive- we paid R800 ($80) for a double room for one night, which is pretty much double the price of any other backpackers we went to. We stayed for 4 night following this at Observatory Backpackers, which is slightly further out the city but is a brilliant place for only R400 ($40) for a double room per night. It's 90% as good (rooms just as nice, free wifi, but no breakfast) yet half the price. If you're just on holiday for a week or so, need tips for all you activities from staff, and have the cash, stay at B.I.G, but if your travelling for a long time an being a bit more careful with cash, or if you have a car so it's okay to be slightly further out of the centre, then I would recommend observatory backpackers.
