Accoustix Backpackers should probably be thanked for showing our learners where you don't want to end up. The rooms are very small and the two double-bunks in the room where we stayed just about fitted in. No room to put bags. The walk-through kitchen and very old pots did not help at all. Together with a few drunks and half-naked...

I was not sure whether I had arrived at the right place as I was under the impression that this was a tavern. Drunk people and filth wherever you look. Unfortunately they did not want to refund me because it is obvious they cannot afford it. Worst decision ever!

Terrible customer service! Mainly, you dont get a warm welcome, you get to attempt not to bother those at reception. They have no skill in service. I asked a chick to store my backpack for 4 days and she said storage was full. Not even close, she was just too lazy to find a spot for one bag. This somehow...

Accoustix is a cosy and convenient backpackers lodge with a warm African feel to it. The staff is caring and the service is personolised. It is also good value for money in terms of the facilities (a very nice swimming pool, a broad range of satellite TV channels, Wi-Fi, which is free to a certain limit, as well as a...

The accommodation is of a high standard,Nomsa is usually on hand to meet and greet and help you settle in. We were in an Executive Room this time. It was spacious and very comfortable. We went toRosebank mall...

We spent two glorious days here to recoup from a 23 hour flight from Singapore and before going on safari. This lodge provided a peaceful romantic setting and we never left the lodge. And best of all, the staff were helpful, available and helped with our every need, including a perfect recommendation for dinner out. This is definitely my new...
