Sehr schoene Lage am Hang, trotzdem gute Verbindung in die City. Wie auch in anderen hostels hat uns das TV am frühen Morgen sehr gestoert. Ansonsten sehr kompetente und freundliche Mitarbeiter. Komme gerne mal wieder.

The room was not furnitured exept the beds., no cold water available. We were very polite, but all questions were answered with I dont know. TV running in the lodge all days. No shopping food neraby. We found out, how to reach things and to go by gautrain. No help from the staff. They always put taxi as the only possibillity.. Only the lady for cleaning was very busy all the day.. Very unfriendly atmosphere from the staff.

Dear Guest, we are truly sorry that you have had such a negative experience here with us. Our standard room consist of 2 twin beds, bedside tables, and some art on the wall. The tv is running in the lodge, for some guests to use, as it is there for entertainment. The Shopping center is within a 7 min walk. Our guests that were here at the time were drinking early in the morning, and ask the staff member to join the game of cards they were playing, but I assure you she was drinking coca cola.
