This is the best hostel to stay at in JoBurg. The hostel is surrounded by some really nice neighborhoods in one direction but a really rough neighborhood in the other direction. It's near convenience stores and mass transit, but the mass transit can be confusing so ask the staff about it. The gardens and outdoor patio at the hostel are fantastic and everything is very clean. Only big complaint: one of the showers is very slippery and I took a nasty spill even with the rubber mat.

Thank you for being the best guest. We are sorry about the nasty spill. We will take care of the mat problem. Patience


Best accommodation in Johannesburg! The backpackers is a very nice and peaceful accommodation in Johannesburg where you can get some rest. Very good and clean facilities: exceptional for Southafrica! They go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as it can be. They are also very helpful with information and tours a n d they offer pick-ups and lifts from/to the airport. An excellent accommodation: I booked for two nights and after arriving I chose to stay longer...
