    Lungile is an average hostel with regards to room size, cleanliness (not dirty or mouldy in any way, but it's a hostel, so you don't expect the Ritz) and the 40 Rand breakfast (cereal and toast with jam etc). But the staff is really friendly,...More

    As a self proclaimed ex restaurateur and a former hotel employee one would expect that you would know not to compare hostel standards with that of a hotel. For future reference, book a hotel instead of a hostel. Regards, Lungile management
