It's a Small World Backpackers Lodge Avondale
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I had a very nice stay at Its a small world lodge Avondale. We spent 8 days there. They have good facilities and friendly and helpfull stay. We had a twin room where we shared the bathrooms with the other guests which was nice and cleaned daily with hot water every day. They provide breakfast and transportation for a fair price. 25 dollars to/from the airport. The internet connection is good but you are limited to bying 4 and a half hours (5 dollars) at a time that cannot be shared or stopped once connected. The lodge in Avondale is close to nice restaurants with big selections of food and a supermarket. Café Nush and the local market are must visits. The lodge also has a kitchen for those who want to self-cater.

Always willing to help new comers as they are lost. The times we visited here we were always welcome and the staff went out of their way to ensure we find rooms despite having not booked. I have recommended this facility to many of my friends due to their wonderful service.

Great facilities such as super nice restaurant, bar, laundry and wifi. Attractive garden and pool.

Good place, nice garden, bright rooms. Very close from the center. Good wifi! I would definitely recommend it to friends who can't afford a hotel or guesthouse in the center. We were on budget camping but the place is nice.

Stayed in July 2014 for 3 nights; very relaxed atmosphere with a decent amount of space to sit outside. Quiet neighborhood and bar was not loud at all.

The price is good at $35/night for a private twin room; ask management for help with planning day trips!
