Reviews of Santos Express Train Lodge
Great for a 1 night stop. Obviously not a luxury hotel, but great location and it beats camping!
very well situated. Rooms are very little but for one night it was a good choice.
It was different experience staying in train parked on a beach. Nice view and easy access to beach. Restaurant was good with sea view. You can sit either inside or on deck. Over all amazing experience. ****
1st class position - best spot in town. Great restaurant and bar. Huge novelty value with carraige dorm and view from beds. However, very no sound proofing.
Terrific place, so much fun to be in real train compartments. View of the beach and sound of waves are lovely. Staff is helpful and friendly. Free wifi, free breakfasts. Can't be beat!
The Hostel is diferent from all I've ever seen, very organized, the restaurant is very good, and it's on the beach wich makes it a very relaxed evironment.
Was dubious about booking initially as I'm an avid hotel stayer...but...this place was great! Clean, professional and a stones throw from the beach! The food was great and at a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again : )
First of all when i booked online the figure for two nights was quoted at R600 something for two nights. I paid via credit card, assuming that this is the full amount. When i Called Santos direct to conform the booking they told me I would have to pay another R400+. When checking in onFriday the 22nd I paid the balance.I decided to check out a day early, and when I requested a refund I was declined- They informed me that "it's at their descretion" to refund or not!!Furtermore I noticed that twice after making the reservation through Hostelsclub my Credit card was debited by roughly R75, which I was not aware of. This whole thing sucks!!!!!
Fantastic place, very clean and excellent value for money.
