The place is very nice, but the kitchen is full of roaches going everywhere. The level of kitchen cleanliness is very poor.
They have free wifi and are close to the local tourist attractions
I thought D.D was a good stop of point for me in Jo'burg. Security was abit sub-par. Back door gate was found open when i arrived, so I could just walk in. location is not the best as it is kinda way out. Staff were cool though, place was clean enough and tidy and it did sort of reflect a nice homely vibe. Quiet when I was there but I wouldn't mind staying at D.D again if I was in the area, as it is a hostel and talks and looks like one as well., Not a bad point for bazbus either.
I didn't feel like going to the supermarkets supposed to be nearby, on account of security. I didn't see any emerging risk, but there were nobody walking on the streets. So I would suggest that the hostel could offer phone numbers of restaurants that deliver food there at night!
