First off there is minimal provided. They were out of towels and had no utensils or plates or cookware. Upon my arrival I was forced to sign a contract saying that if I ended my stay early, I would not be reimbursed. It wasnt until I arrived that I realized there was also no wifi. When one of the employees realized I am South African, I was questioned in front of other guests about why I was staying at this hostel and was told "most locals are thieves".
I would definitely recommend this backpackers lodge. It is a short safe walk from the Rosebank Gautrain station. I met some wonderful fellow travelers here. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. Advice: You must bring your own towels. There are lockers in the rooms, but you will need your own locks to secure them. The reception only accepts cash and there is a R50 refundable key deposit. The main vehicle gate can be opened with a switch behind the wall on the left. It has a delay.
