Our guest house is the ideal base for any exploration of the area, and our location means you have easy access to public transport as well as a wide range of amenities.

As well as family and guest accommodation, we provide backpackers accommodation with rates starting from just R130 per night. Were confident we offer some of the best value for money accommodation in the area.

Youll find 2B Happy provides a refreshing difference from many of the guest houses in Johannesburg, and our friendly team make sure a safe and relaxed atmosphere is maintained at all times.

With a choice of accommodation ranging from self-contained guest houses to our eight-bed dorm room theres something for everyone, and every budget too. Spend time in our main house, relax in the garden and soak up the sun or enjoy the pleasures of an open-air braai or boma on the cooler nights.
