Overnight stop whilecycling through the area. Just perferctly close to the town centre so no trouble to go for a beer or dine. Rooms spacious and comfy, nice common room. Lovely shady garden and most of all a great locked spot for the bikes including water hose! Thanks!

The situation of the lodge is perfect for access to the centre of town and the tram which visits the wine farms. Although the bedding was clean we had an invasion of ants during the night across the bed. Rooms smelt of damp as did the whole place.

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.

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....
