Lungile Backpackers Lodge
Reviewed December 12, 2010

This place met our expectations. They have friendly staff, nice and clean double room with ensuite and basic breakfast included. Bar + Pool area. Don't expect extra comfort though. It's a classical backpackers place. The hostal is located quite close to the waterfront (nicest area in Port Elisabeth) so many nice places are reachable in walking distance.

I found Lungile Lodge to be an excellent place to stay for my total of 5 nights there, on 2 separate occasions. Some rooms are like a hotel with very decent double rooms with en-suite facilities and of course others are shared, but all are of a good standard.

Its set in Humewood which is a safe area (don't stay in the central area!). Just 5 mins away is the sea with a range of bars and restaurants (including Macdonalds!).

Bebe the manager was very helpful. I would definately recommend this backpackers to you.

On arriving in Lungile, we were shown to our room, which had two people already in it. The somewhat grumpy staff then moved us to another room in which the creosote fumes from the woodwork nearly knocked us over, and the fridge made a colossal din all night. The lights didn't work and the shower wasn't great. All in all, not somewhere we'd recommend.
