    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 :)

    Loved staying here! One street over and things aren’t probably safe for a white tourist, but the hostel is great! Enjoyed the briee there and they serve great coffee (to order). Definitely recommend staying here if you are in Joberg!

    The staffs didn't have much information to help me, but they allowed me to use the phone to make some calls. The street on which the hostel is located is the only street in the surroundings that I felt safe. Tours a bit expensive. Good bar, good kitchen (I didn't use it). Making friends demands some effort as the hostel doesn't provide the atmosphere.

    I had a little incident with the hostel. The made a mistake and I had to change hostel on a Friday evenin. Also the staff gave me the feeling they couldn't care less about the mistake they made. So was not to happy about the customer service at all. For the rest the hostel is nice.
