Ashanti Lodge Review
Owen and the girl behind the counter were great and John the security guard. They were very helpful. The place itself is very nice, although it comes with the expected 'discomfort' of sharing a room. There was also a duck quacking continuously and really loudly in the morning which woke me. Beyond that, shower facilities and breakfast was awesome. I would recommend the stay.

Good value
Breakfast was fantastic. People in the corridor talking till late was disturbing. To use wifi I had to come out into the lobby area, which was not convenient.
