    We had a 36-hour layover in Johannesburg, so this place was an excellent option. Well located for the international airport (the shuttle service offered was perfect). They kindly offered to arrange many activities if we had needed. The location is quiet and safe, the accommodation is excellent offering very good value for money, we stayed in a private room with an amazingly comfortable bed! Breakfast was included which was a bonus. The owners are so kind, they really could not do more to help.

    Nice hostel which is close to the airport. The staff can help you with everything you need. The pool is also a very nice place to cool down. Definitely a good hostel!

    This property was the perfect location for our Johannesburg stopover. It is close to the airport and staff will meet your flight for pickup and also drop you off on your departure. There is a kitchen for those that want to cook and again staff will drive you to the grocery for shopping. There is also a weekly menu for evening meals and light snacks. The staff are so great taking care of all your needs. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    not a bad option by the airport. definitely recommend the airport transfer service! the owner runs it and is a very nice guy who is good to chat with. only thing I feel I have to mention is during the Braai night the person running the braai told me straight away that couldn't be Australian because Australians are white... and I am not. I would recommend being more careful saying these kinds of things to guests...
