About Hodge Podge Lodge Backpackers

The wooden cottages and dorms are styled to meet the needs of individual guests and groups. The backpackers has a very unique bar in the communal lapa called the Middle Of The Road Taste.

The bar blends a bit of old and new as well as the comfort of Rhodesian Teak tables with directors’ chairs. With pool and poker table, Wi-Fi access, and a swimming pool, Hodge Podge is a backpacker's paradise.

Surrounded by a beautiful garden, Hodge can accommodate up to 130 guests. Meals are catered for upon request. African food is a specialty including the traditional potjiekos, all prepared on an open fire.

It is false advertising and everything about is not up to standard. The landlady is rude, dogs all over the place. The place is not as shown in the pictures.

I wouldn't recommend a person to go there just because it is cheap or anything but the place is dirty.Establishment's Response: The client booked in on Friday night round about 10 and then they wanted to use the kitchen to cook food.

We had a boys weekend planned with four good mates. Hodge Podge was the place chosen by all and what a great choice. The hosts were very hospitable and the facilities up to scratch. We will definitely be back for another weekend to be remembered. Highly recommended for a quiet getaway or a big corperate trip.
