    Nice lodge with good view”

    Hippo Lodge Backpackers is located up in a small hill. For those without a car (like us), it was a bit harsh to drag the large suitcase up to a very steep road. But then, once you arrive at the lodge with the nice view, it worths the hard work. So, I highly recommend those with a car to book this lodge. Or, if you are physically fit and don't mind the steep slope to the lodge, it's a very nice place to stay. The common room and kitchen are also spacious with a nice balcony.

    Great place nicely located near the city centre, and it is perfect for a solo traveller like myself to stay overnight before hopping on the plane next early morning.

    The friendly staff makes up for this old and dirty backpacker. Kitchen was unkempt and the showers was not inviting. The bedroom was basic. Not far from town but up a hill.
