I agree with the comments written by others. It is a safe, practical place to stay and exciting for those who have Guiding 'in their blood" to stay at a World Centre. The real benefit I found, staying at Pax Lodge as a solo traveler, was the ability to connect with other people and join them on excursions. I met many people at the communal breakfasts and found this was a great time to plan my sightseeing and find others who were interested in the same excursions. Also, there were always people in the common room in the evenings to chat with.
Although you may have a room to yourself even if you book a twin room, don't count on it. Be prepared to have someone join you at any time during your stay. I was in a twin room and had a roommate arrive very late in the evening. It was a bit strange to have the door swing open while I was already tucked in for the night.
