Santos Express Train Lodge

Devansh Dhar
On our journey between Ronnie's shop and Mossel bay we unfortunately ended up with a flat tire. We were stuck on the highway 14 kms from the nearest town of Albertinia. The roadside assistance arranged a tow truck to come pick us up and drop us at the accommodation for the night at Mossel Bay. It was an agonising wait of 3 hours but when the tow truck eventually turned up we breathed a sigh of relief. We reached Santos Express Train Lodge amidst heavy showers and I got drenched in the cold rain. It's an abandoned train converted into a hostel. The rooms were extremely small but the common areas were nice and spacious. The views on waking up the next morning were spectacular as we had an unobstructed view of the sea.
