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.

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.

My friend and I were only there for one night but it was great! The family were very helpful and kind. And super close to the airport which we needed as we were flying to Mumbai the next morning! Thanks!

It is an awesome accommodation and a really nice start for a trip to South Africa. Bob and Joan are so friendly and help you with everything you need. The accommodation is quite far away from the center, but they have their favourite cab driver, bringing you everywhere for a cheap price. It is also super close to the airport. I definetly recommend to stay there and I will come back before I fly out of Joburg again.

Bob is a great place to be at. They're super helpful in organizing whatever you need. Bob is also great to drink beer with. They have the 2nd cheapest place for beer in ZA, next to Soweto (accdg to Bob). Swimming pool, bar, & wifi internet is free and fast. No locker but they can keep valuable for you in their house. The location is a bit far takes 200zar one-way to go downtown. But if u pool together with other travelers, it is ok. Overall thumbs up!
