My significant other and I rented a double room in March 2014. The accommodation was simple and clean.
The Santos is an old sleeper train which has been converted to a back packers and restaurant with an impeccable view of the beach.
The entire room was occupied by a double bed with a 70cm gap at the door. So the room was about 2m by 2m. Luggage stowage was available under the bed or above the door.
The shower and toilet are shared with other rooms, and are on par with other backpackers bar the lack of soap in toilet. Our room had only a european style recessed 2 pin plug point, so bring a converter if you need to charge things that require a South African 3 pin plug.
The breakfast is a basic and sufficient cereal, toast, coffee and fruit affair.
For people that want to spend their time exploring the sites and not hiding out in their rooms this a fantastic option. Bring Earplugs if the noise of kids playing on the beach bothers you.
