Small cozy rooms, but you had your own shower, which was nice. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful. They will help you arrange any tours you want to do while in town. Very close to hop on/hop off bus stop. Close to water, so you can walk the promenade from the lodge to the V&A waterfront. Free wifi. If you...

Location of the lodge is perfect. Its in a quiet neighbourhood but very close (one minute walking) from the seaside. There's also a busstop where u can catch the bus to the waterfront (10minutes).

I found it very convenient to have the possibility to book accomodation from the organisation i was going to travel with (Drifters). I travelled solo and did not mind to share a twin room with someone but as i arrived i was the only female in our group travelling solo and so i had a twin room all to myself......
