Gemini Backpackers Lodge
Reviewed August 4, 2009

Stinky, moldy rooms (design flaw of having carpet in the bathroom).

Worst of all-- they refused to honor the 24-hour free airport pick-up prominently displayed on their website on the day of my arrival (I had called previously to arrange the pick-up) leaving me stranded at the airport at midnight in Jo-burg. No thank you.

Not worth it, not even remotely worth it. Look elsewhere
