    Can’t recommend staying here enough. The hosts are lovely & have a really, really nice space. The kitchen is huge and easily accessible, the sleeping arrangements are fantastic (best sleep we’d had in four weeks of travelling), the showers have hot water & we never felt unsafe because of the property’s high fences, security cameras & big (but extremely friendly to the guests and cute) guard dog. Wifi is super fast, there is a pool table / books to read, a tv room & washing was $5 AUD for a load.

    It was just a short stay, but surely I'll get there again soon as I'm back to Joburg. Walking distance from nice districts, free airport pickup, easy-going staff. Recommended!

    Heinz and his staff were a good Host. He was so kind to accompany me the whole evening when there was no other guest and a problem with the electricity. Free airport pickup service is super service. Prices for drinks were very good.

    Great hostel in Joburg, it is located halfway between the city center and airport. I stayed at the room for 12, but I was by myself, so it was great to get some rest on the first day. If you are heading to the city or Park Station (bus station), it is only a Uber ride away. Free airport pick is a bonus (drop off at airport is additional fee). Great place to stay in Joburg

    The place is nice, but was really empty when we were there. It seems a fun hostel for the more busy days. The staff was very helpful

    Below average hostel at flashpacker prices. Having stayed in a lot of hostels I have rated this poorly because the score was way higher than the quality of my experience. The hostel was empty with only 5 guests. The staff weren't friendly, I definitely didn't feel at home. The bed was uncomfortable. The was no light in the showers. There was 1 plug for a 14 bed dorm. WiFi didn't reach the rooms. Breakfast is very basic. Redeeming features were house kitchen and lounge. Near the airport.
