    Had a great stay at Curiocity! The street it’s on is very safe (just don’t leave the street on your own without a local), and full of nice restaurants and bars. The bathrooms could do with an upgrade but the rest of the hostel is lovely and all of the staff are super friendly. I would also highly recommend all of the tours offered!

    Atypical place, in an original neighborhood, Fox Street has almost a Brooklyn vibe the Joburg way ! Otherwise, the common areas are not bad at all, and the outside balcony has a beautiful view to offer on the city center !

    Great location - just spent one night so didnt explore the area or see too much of the actual hostel. The space was very clean and the atmosphere seemed super fun with a big open kitchen upstairs and a bar downstairs. Good security inside and outside of hostel.

    Great hostel atmosphere here, easy to meet people and socialise. Food in restaurant is good and great value. As good a place to stay as any if staying in the CBD, which is a bit sketchy. Many staff working here, some very helpful and polite, some not so much. Overall a great stay.

    They don't enforce any quiet hours, so it was very noisy until 1AM. Shower and bathroom facilities could use an upgrade.. felt like a dirty gym locker/shower. The common area is chill.
