    Amazing place. Great vibes and great bar. Lockers, individual lights, lots of security (door codes for each dorm). Best hostel I stayed at in ZA by far. Near the bus and train station. Highly recommended.

    Stayed in a lot of hostels the last few years but this is one of my favourite. Really cool vibe on evening and great tours in the day! In a safe neighborhood. Staff all super friendly and helpful, Robin on the front desk was really helpful sorting out my bookings and Tepo was a fantastic tour guide. Would definitely recommend.

    The staff were friendly and helpful, the ticket system was a little odd and a waste of paper. Perhaps switch it to making 1 ticket worth 1 drink and have different tickets based on the type of drink. I.e. 1 ticket is for water (at US$1) another is for a beer ($3), etc. the location is good and weekends are wild! If you don’t like to party get a room in the back and bring earplugs. Some bunk beds need to be repaired as my top bunk fell one night, luckily no one was injured :) I’d stay here again!

    Decent Location (Maboneng) with noteworthy bars/restaurants in walking distance. However, to get to any other part of the city, an Uber is required. Staff informed us that streets around the hostel are unsafe (esp at night), except for the street the hostel is located on, which is busy and has guards. The bar/common area is excellent, and an easy way to meet people. Staff are pretty friendly too. Showers and bathrooms are a little tired and worn. Beds reasonably clean. Breakfast is delicious.

    They need some new pillows. The pillows are basically just empty husks. The area is also a bit sketchy once you leave the 3 block radius of Maboneng. The staff is great and very friendly though. Only negative thing about them is that they don't respond to emails

    What a fun hostel! Came in on a Saturday night to a full bar and commotion downstairs. The staff is great, really fun and the residents are even better. Can’t wait to come back

    If I hadn't had such a crappy experience, I would have said: "Cool atmosphere, clean rooms, good value for the money". However, the overhead light didn't work, then the heater stopped working, then the power went out in half of the hostel. In the morning, when my laundry should have been done, I was told that it wasn't, and that there was a 24-hour window. With nothing to wear, I missed the Soweto tour and had to scrap the whole day. So thanks for nothing CurioCity, you wasted my last day in SA.
