Map & Directions
PLEASE NOTE: We offer a FREE pick up service from the OR Tambo International Airport and or Park Station (The main bus and train station).
After you have confirmed your reservation at Brown Sugar Backpackers with HostelWorld you need to send us your FLIGHT DETAILS (Flight number and ETA) via e-mail to verify if you qualify for the FREE pickup that is valid Monday to Sunday from 07h00 to 22h00 daily. We will send you an e-mail with all the details.
Park Station pick up service: We are about 10-15 minutes by car from the station. Just call us when your bus or train has arrived (they are not always on time so do not call us from the bus). You MUST call us on 011 648 7397 when you have arrived and we will tell you where to wait. It will be on the upper level where the Gaubus departs (Red City Sightseeing Hop-on-hop-off bus) because our driver will meet you as this terminal where that is a safe place to wait.
