I'm very grateful for my experience with John and the rest of the hostel crew. The hostel was pleasantly clean, bedlinen and towels were new and fresh, the overall ambiance was perfect! I felt safe here, and like some other places in Johannesburg it might not be recommended to walk outside alone at night.

set in a pleasant area of Jo'burg, the new owner has done much to push this hostel upmarket whilst keeping sensible prices for dorms and private rooms. The result is an attractive, tidy, well maintained and affordable hostel with a good vibe, excellent and friendly staff and a pool terrace with outstanding views of the Jo'burg skyline!! Private and public...
