“The Santos Express Train Lodge” or simply “Train” is an old train that is parked in the harbor town of Mossel Bay in the Southern Cape of South Africa. The little hotel is located 30 meters from the sea. It features seven coaches, four of them being identical with sleeper compartments, sharing two toilets and a shower. The fifth coach serves as a 16 bed dormitory with a self-catering kitchen, while the last two vintage coaches contain two spacious suites. The train also hosts a restaurant that serves a wide range of traditional South African dishes.
Santos Express Train Lodge is not a luxurious stay, the rooms are tiny and there are no lockers on the compartments, but the shower and toilets are clean and everything is well organized.
