I didn't like the 22h00 curfew, not ideal for holiday makers.

Perfect place to stay if you need to be close to airport.. Directions to get there were excellent and easy to follow. We had a lovely big room with a comfortable bed and good bathroom. Kitchen is adequate to get own breakfast. Wifi free for one hour and works well, but if internet is important, best to check first as this may be changing.
WiFi was relatively expensive, 80 rand per day. We had to leave after check-out at 10 am. Our plane left at 7 pm but there was no possibility to enjoy the pool or store luggage the rest of the day.
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.
It's a great place to stay if you need to be near the airport.
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!
Loved our staying!

Lovely place to start our journey in SA, very helpful owners! Definitely recommendable, we will come back here the night before heading back to Europe!
i am greatly impressed with the friendly environment and cleanliness.staff is v.helpful,decent and soft spoken.
A very nice place to stay.3 weeks ago i stayed here and it was my 3rd time. Very clean,nice staff,in 10 minutes you are at the international airport of Johannesburg. For the next time i will come back.
good address to for an overnight stay near the airport.
the hostel is very much as described; clean, quiet and secure. Located outside Joburg it is much safer than the majority of areas within the city,and it is very much like a B&B or guesthouse in terms of the personal attention that you receive from staff. May be a bit quiet for some people as it is definitely not a party hostel, but it will appeal to someone wanting a quiet, clean base from which to explore Joburg and the surrounding area.
