I stayed at Accoustix Lodge 2 years ago, and chose it again for our recent quick stopover in Johannesburg with my daddy. The accommodation is of a high standard,Nomsa is usually on hand to meet and greet and help you settle in. We were in an Executive Room this time. It was spacious and very comfortable. We went toRosebank mall... More

I ended up being involved in a shouting match with one of the staff members because she could not give me a receipt for my stay, only to have her email it. I had to check with her twice before she sent it. Apart from telling me that I was bothering her and that I said a lot of things,... More

We spent two glorious days here to recoup from a 23 hour flight from Singapore and before going on safari. This lodge provided a peaceful romantic setting and we never left the lodge. And best of all, the staff were helpful, available and helped with our every need, including a perfect recommendation for dinner out. This is definitely my new... More

The only thing going through my head is that I should've listened to the online reviews, and not the backpacker's website. This is one inspect-the-chair-before-sitting-down dingy place! And sound travels, especially to the dorm room I was in. Could clearly hear the men fighting (shouting, throwing furniture and glass bottles at midnight), and the bus load of people who arrived...

Staff were friendly and helpful throughout stay and the hostel itself is generally clean, free access to internet (via computer). Stayed in double room which was nice and even though on front of property was not noisy. The only let down with this place is the location, not in terms of safety (we wandered around the local area and never... More

Ok- you want to get really tight on budget when you select a backpackers place- but then at least give the amenities that are included- the breakfast is over and is insufficient (when you know 25...

After reading some reviews I regretted booking my stay here but decided to go ahead having read horrible reviews of places before and finding the place perfectly alright. However all previous reviews were correct, this place is horrible. Stayed here for three nights and dreaded going back to the hostel every night. Staff were unhelpful, the area did not feel... More
