                                      It's well located, and good for one night. If you're backpacking try book beds in dorm 7 rather than 9 (much nicer). Don't expect too much. It's a bed, and a bit of a South African experience.. in the owner's defense they were doing some building so maybe that'll improve the accommodation somewhat. We did get the feeling that the owner doesn't care a lot about how the guests feel.

                                      Stayed 2 nights. Wanted to leave as soon as we arrived. Not happy with the level of accommodation. Rooms felt dirty and had bad smell. Establishment smelt bad as well. Showers were dirty. Pillows and bedding were sub par.Would never recommend this place to anyone ever

                                      The shower floor in Room 6 was dirty. The place isn't looked after very well.

                                      It is with sad regret that we were not happy with Travellers Lodge. In my opinion we will not recommend anybody to this place. We booked 2 nights but decided to stay one night only. The room we stayed in smelled hideous and there were'nt even any fans in the rooms.Unfortunately our stay was not good at all.

                                      The establishment was dirty, tight and uncomfortable.had to look for alternative accomodation.
