It was in a good location, but rooms were over priced for what you got. I know it's world cup and it's cash in time but the beds had planks to cover up broken springs! Little or no hot water and dribbly showers. The staff were friendly and very helpful though.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
It was not good at all. the bed sheets were all very dirty with bad smell. The room was not clean had lot of insects (spider and ...). The toilets were out side without soap. The environment was very noisy over night. I never recommend this place at all. The staff were kind somehow.

However, just seems to be another case of white south african profiteering that everyone who has travelled for the world cup will be well familiar with
