Need a good night's sleep? Come here!

We were staying here for three restful nights.
The personnel is very friendly and polite.
The triple room we got for 700 Rand per night was very nice and clean, it has a balcony, a bathroom and the mattresses are good, the beds big enough.
Very recommendable!
We didn't sleep in the dorms, but from looking at them, they looked much nicer and cleaner than most of the dorms we have seen out there!
La Lucia is a very calm and clean area and the backpackers is situated just at the beach. (I should mention that you can't go swimming in the sea there, because there are no life guards and the sea patrol is quite a bit away from there.)
