Nice place in safe area of the town”

The place is nice with spacious entrance hall, kitchen and balcony. They also have a nice cafe with pretty good food offerings. The location is pretty safe but evenings and nights can be loud due to lots of music/dance clubs in the street

Great Location - loud music at night”

This facility is located on a main street from the 20ish party street, but has great restaurants and coffee shops & Jewel City with a grocery store, etc. The location seems dangerous at first, but just be street smart. Bar attracts a great mix of locals and travelers from within the city.

Very good”

Good location. I visited Jozi twice and stayed here both times. Load shedding/power outages were a problem in the area.

Excellent”

Bed is very clean. Sheets smells clean and comfortable bed. Toilets are a little far for the private room and when it’s raining there is no shelter to the toilet. But toilets are clean. Overall good and will recommend to others.

Changed my perception of Johannesburg”

If you want to stay at a place where you widen your horizon, this is it! The hostel itself is very nice, in the bar you will meet interesting people and in the neighborhood really good restaurants. And if you have time take one of the tours they are offering.
