Normally do not stay in Travellers Lodges or Backpackers but was surprised as this one was well look after. Friendly reception, clean room and bathroom. Bit noisy when people go to their rooms. Enjoyed the small Labyrinth and made use of it. In walking distance to the main street and restaurants of Franschoek.

Poor standard in the rooms, the rooms where clean though. The sharing of bathroom and shower was a surprise, while it wasn't clearly stated in the description. Good location in Franschoek. Reached everything in the center by walking. Consider twice before you book. However, it was cheap and clean.

Our Pro Musica choir performed in Franschhoek on a Saturday evening and Sunday morning so we needed overnight accommodation. The en suite bedroom allocated to and my wife was plain, but the bed lights and the wall plug were not working.

Comfortable rooms. Excellent service. Amazing location. This place is a must for people who don't need frills but want the basics covered well. Stones throw from main village you can walk everywhere. The lady at reception went above and beyond helping solve all guests problems. She even did make up for a friend of mine going to a party!

Even though it's a backpackers, the family rooms are quiet and very comfortable, making it an affordable family option, walking distance from the city center. It would have been nice to see the parking gate closed at night.

As we only needed a place to sleep the facility did just that, provided us with a place to stay. Not sure I would stay there again. I know the accommodation is very, very, very cheap compared to other facilities in the area. However when arriving the view you get from the internet is totally different to the real thing....

The staff were not friendly and re wifi only works in the common lounge. The lounge smells moldy and the house is noisy. No coffee or tea available. But the mattress and pillow were comfortable and it's affordable for the area.

We had informed the "reception" that we would be arriving late. When we arrived there was no one to check us in. After waiting in the cold for over 30mims someone arrived, they did not even introduce themselves, we first thought they were guests. Very unfriendly check in service. We arrived to our room after passing a few "guests" eating...
