    Superb

    Perfect for a solo traveller-- lots of chances to meet & mingle with people. The hostel offered great tours (though not the full range of those advertised). There were lockers in the dorm, just provide your own lock. Best of all, they had my big three: hot showers, comfy beds, and consistent wifi! Overall loved my stay and was sad to leave! Just wish they served some kind of food or snack in the bar.

    If you are staying here, you must do the walking tour organized by the hostel. Bowny was absolutely stunning with the amount of knowledge he had about Joburg and made really good movie suggestions of SA which I am now back home and watching. I have done around 20 walking tours around Europe and Asia, and Bowny's was one of the best ones. The hostel is great! Super clean with incredibly friendly staff. Also, there is an ATM inside the hostel so you need not worry about going out to withdraw.

    A great hostel in a trendy part of town. I gave this a 4/5 for atmosphere, but this is a matter of taste. I enjoy hostels that have a cozy, uniting atmosphere. This makes it easy to meet fellow travellers. This hostel had a bar which is open to the public, and pretty popular. This made it feel less like a hostel. But others will consider this an asset.

    Great choice for Johannesburg. Maboneng is a cool area, lots of trendy bars and restaurants plus security on all the street corners. Great tours from the hostel also
