    My cousin and I had a very pleasant stay at Shoestrings, Rob could not have done more for us or been more welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and we were provided with a key so we felt our possessions were safe. There were also plenty of facilities and transport opportunities around the hostel so it was easy to explore Johannesburg and get everything we needed. Again Rob helped us with transport where he could. I would definitely stay here again.
