This is a simple lodge with clean, but basic rooms. The beds are ok, and the facilities are clean and acceptable. Given the area / country it is in, it is not bad at all for the price.
It is frequented by lots of UN people. The restaurant is actually pretty good with decent breakfast and fantastic fresh peri peri at mealtimes. The swimming pool is fantastic for a few relaxing hours after a sweltering day in Juba and the water temperature is sublime.
Staff are friendly, but inefficient. They go about their tasks without commitment and service is slow.
For seasoned African travelers the place is a cool oasis, but the armed security guards, spartan rooms, intermittent electricity supply, and often overloaded aircon, this lodge might be a bit much for softer travelers to cope with comfortably,
Payment can only be made in USD for the room and in Sudanese Pounds for the food. Take cash with you because you can't pay by credit card. Also, make SURE you have only perfectly crisp, new USD notes. They can easily refuse to accept older notes, especially if they are slightly (and I mean slightly) nicked or torn. Even the latest notes will be rejected if they are grubby or torn.More
