Great staff! Perfect location next to the airport for your first or last night in Jo'burg, but not ideal if you want to spend a week here.

Very clean and very safe. Relax hostel to stay low for a few days. If you're looking for a party spot this is not it. This is Jo'burg so no single place can be centrally located, as is the case with Ghandi, you need to walk 15-20min. anywhere or take a taxi. Internet unfortunately is expensive at 25 rand per hour, plus there's no wi-fi.

Cheap, well located and good party spot, but much too loud due to the bar.

in the old city, so close to numerous historical sites but far away from nightlife rooftop is hostel restaurant and other than that there's no common room so no good for bonding
