Joan and Bob were very friendly and very helpful! Very close to the airport, which is great if you're staying a night before a connecting flight. There is not too much to do nearby though.

Nothing to do around, good if you have a car or for one night in the city.


This place is amazing, however the location was not conducive to anything other than this place being a pit stop. This place is easily accessible by transit of taxi or pick up by the hostel, however there is unfortunately, not much in walking distance for food, groceries or shopping. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and informative. The atmosphere was arranged perfectly for quite time and for interacting with staff and hostel mates. This price and value was perfect.


Bob and Joan were great. The grocery store was just up the street and it's not far from the airport. Loved Bob's Bunkhouse.


Bob and Joan are very very firendly! Felt like home. Everything is clean and organized, nice shower, tasty breakfast (they prepare toasts) and the family was very helpful when giving advice, changing money for a beer and booking tours to the Lion Park and to the city. Close to the airport and they arrange pick ups from and to there during the day for very reasonable price. The only thing I missed were lockers, but had no problem with my stuff. Would definetely return!


Great place to stay in Jo'burg. Near the airport. But it's a little bit far from the city center. Even though, I loved it. Nice places for eat nearby.


It is far away from everything! Really, you have to get a cab for everywhere where you're going. It's clean, but I would only recommend this if you're travelling by car.


Very nice and helpful people. Thanks a lot!

perfect for airport layovers and Bob was very kind to drop me off at the airport early in the morning for a very reasonable fare.


Tipptopp! It was clean, bedclothes were washed, the people from the hostel were very lovely and organises shuttle from the airport, to and from the shopping mall and finaly to the station. In the room it was a little bit drafty, but it was ok. We liked it at all!
