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!

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!


Really great stay. Very warm, family environment and hosts are hard to beat.


Bob and Joan make you feel very welcome and comfortable. Their property is close to the airport and I will definitely be back soon.


Good little spot, especially if your coming or going from the airport. Just a little quite while I was there.


This is located close to the airport with nearby shops 10 minutes away. Very clean bathrooms and dorms. A large bar area and chill area. The owners help organising shuttles and finding activities in Johannesburg and tours throughout Africa.

It was clean, the host friendly and very close to the airport. I had a 16 hour layover and didn't feel like spending the night in the airport or spending lots of money on a hotel room and it was great for what I was looking for.


Bob and Joan are a lovely, friendly couple that will go out of their way to help you. The hostel is attached to their house so is very secure but it only consists of 10 beds, an outside bar and a small lounge/kitchenette. As with most hostels in Joburg, it's well out of the centre so it costs a lot to get anywhere but there are some fast food places nearby (and a cracking Chinese!). A nice place for a short stay.
