Visited that hostel already two years ago and wanted to come back... Bob retired and the owner changed and the new boss' name is Maura now... Very welcoming lady, very friendly and helpful... Service even improved, I would say ;)


Very friendly homely atmosphere with an excellent location close to the airport.

Great hostel, amazing atmosphere. The owners were great, always willing to help. There's a lso a nice pool area.


Close to the airport. Friendly owner.


Seriously, Jo Burg is a rough city as you can see high fences and barb wire everywhere. Maura makes you feel safe and is super informative with tours and rides (I highly recommend Jarbu). A lot of people are scared to come anywhere near the African Continent because of the Ebola scare. I get it, but rest assured it's safe in that aspect. Don't pay anymore than R150 from OR Tambo here. It's 10 min away. Taxi drivers hustle so just call Maura and she will help you. The wifi is strong and the bunk


Awesome WiFi, Maura is great, really close to the airport and nice to have a simple breakfast. I arrived at dark and it looked closed which made me nervousso I had to call to be let in... Also all the bunks are together so not much privacy.
