  • We would like to thank Ron, the owner for letting us use his computer to find a rental car. Also playing taxi driver , taking us to the airport. Ron went out of his way to making sure that backpackers got to their destinations. Thanks for all you did. the 2 sisters

  • Rob does an excellent job with his hostel and guests. He provides free transportation to and from OR Tambo. In addition, he takes guests to catch the Gautrain and to go shopping.

  • Rob the owner is very nice and helpful, there is a lot of space outside though the pool wasn't functional at the time of my visit. It's close to the airport but due to that the night life/food is lacking in the area. It's a trade off

  • Airport pick up and drop off make this the go to option for a stop over in J'Burg. Had to hunt out hot water downstairs in dorm area as the water in our "shared" bathroom was only luke warm (downstairs was great though, hot and good pressure) Would go back again!

  • Rob,the owner, was very kind and helped me in everything I needed. The staff was also very kind. It was weird that the place didn't have towels but I head my own so it was fine. Very convenient for an early trip to the Johannesburg airport.
