The hostel is located very close to the airport in a nice residential neighborhood. Everything was very clean and the owner was extremely friendly. We had internet access and a small breakfast. We recommend the Terrylin to all.

Thank you, for your wonderful review. It was really a pleasure having you and Joan here and I wish you all the best.


It's a great place to stay if you need to be near the airport.

Thank you for your rating and kind review. It was great having you here and we wish you all the best.


We got nearly mugged in Jo´burg and were quite scared- but arriving at Terrylin´s Backpacker Hostel felt like home. The host is an absolutely adorable woman, the nicest host I´ve ever met in a hostel. The room was clean, also the ensuite bathroom. You were able to see everywhere that the hostel is being run with joy- a bottle of water in the room; showergel, lotion and bathrobes in the bathroom. Not far from the hostel is a hotel with a great buffet dinner. So, stay at Terrylin´s if you can!
