The best location in Cape Town


Welcome to our Cape Town Backpacker hotel / lodge in the heart of Green Point near the city and Waterfront in the stylish old harbour masters house. Best location, backpacker accommodation at affordable rates and fantastic service.

When you’re not checking out Cape Town’s nightlife (which we know you will), knock back a few drinks at the bar and learn some handy travel tips. Being one of the bigger lodges in town, we have loads of en-suite doubles, singles, private double rooms with shared bathrooms and dorms.

Big Blue Backpackers is a 5 minute walk from the V&V Waterfront at the foothills of Signal Hill. Local restaurants and pubs are a 2 minute walk away. The beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay are a short bus ride away. We have a great pub – sparkling swimming pool – free internet and WiFi in the lobby – a satellite sports channel tv – pick-up and drop-off point for the Baz Bus. We accept payment by credit card. Banks are a short walk away from the lodge and we have an in-house ATM for your convenience. Checkout by 10:30 am.
