  • The place is far from everything, but that's the way things are in Joburg. However, this is not a problem, as you can arrange pick ups and drop offs with the hotel owner... With a cost. Although is cheaper than taxi. The hostel is excellent ! Rooms are clean, it has common areas, free wifi, kitchen, microwave and has a very relaxed atmosphere. Only thing is I couldn't make the hot water work. Definitely recommend it!

  • About halfway between the airport and city centre. Has bar, pool and a super nice and shiny kitchen. The dorm was a bit drafty and there were no lockers to store your valuables. Staff were super friendly and there were 2 nice dogs on the premises.
