    Absolutely loved my stay here. I’m a solo female traveller and felt really safe at the hostel. The street on which it’s located has security making it safe to go out in the evenings for dinner etc. The hostel itself was awesome. The dorm room was pretty spacious and so were the beds. The only thing I found slightly annoying was trying to shower and not really have hooks to hang your towel and clothes etc. Minor issue though! Thanks for the lovely stay!

    I had the best stay at Curiocity! The staff was absolutely amazing and helped me plan my overall trip into the rest of SA. I did the Soweto and Inner City tour and gained so much insight into the City of Gold! Would definitely recommend any traveller to stay with them :)

    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!
