    The private rooms are massive and very comfy by budget standards. It's in a quiet and posh-looking neighborhood a 15-odd minute drive from nearly everything and an easy Uber away from the Rosebank Gautrain. Pleasant and green property

    Beauty and the staff have created a great space to hang out in joburg. It’s a little out of the way but safe and had what you need nearby. She will arrange tours and transport. I also met many people who have stayed there before and returned. Enjoy your stay!

    Fantastic hostel, a good alternative if you're worried about staying in the city. There are some really nice areas a short uber away, the hop on hop off bus is a half hour walk. Its in a fantastic little neighbourhood with everything you need and good places to eat and drink 2 mins up the road Beauty on the front desk was so helpful, very friendly. Was a bit quiet but in a way that was nice, atmosphere is the only thing that could improve but im finding it hard to fault this place :)

    I loved this quaint and comfortable place! I would recommend and I would stay here again. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The owner is on site and he is a delightful host who is warm and welcoming. This place is kinda off the beaten path but Uber is readily accessible and affordable. I had a great time thanks to Danny and Beauty!!

    Joburg Backpackers offers great value for money. The rooms are in line with the rates (simple, the building a little old) but they are clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly, the Wifi is the best and its a very close walk to great restaurants in Greenside. A perfect launch for a Joburg trip or a weekend off.

    Was not shown around but I think there is a kitchen. Beauty on front desk was very helpful. The place seemed to be getting an upgrade. Only one other person staying and no food is on offer. Pool and rooms clean and pleasant. Lovely neighbourhood bu5 not central. Shops nearby.
