The Backpackers in Green Point is a boutique backpackers situated on the Atlantic Seaboard. The B.I.G has successfully tapped into a new concept within the backpacking community, where the luxury and comfort of a guesthouse is combined with the communal interactive atmosphere synonymous with backpackers. The chief aim of the B.I.G was to change the perception of the backpacking experience by offering affordable prices in an uncompromisingly luxurious setting. Weary travellers, in search of quiet, also have the option to retreat to private and peaceful spaces on offer in en-suite private rooms. It has been beautifully refurbished using only locally-sourced décor to create a space of comfort, cleanliness and luxury with the purpose in mind to allow guests the option of taking time out or connecting with likeminded travellers.
At the B.I.G. we are committed, on a daily basis, to sharing our passion for Cape Town with our guests and always going the extra mile to ensure that each guest has the best possible stay in the Mother City. This includes sharing local knowledge and suggesting activities and places of interest in Cape Town through one-on-one consultations. By identifying the need for affordable accommodation without having to compromise on creature comforts and service, the B.I.G prides itself as an unforgettable, proudly South African destination for both locals and international travellers.
