    Super nice people! Great hosts. Very friendly. I arrived alone from the airport on my first night in South Africa. The staff were very welcoming, we ate and drank together and played darts. Made me feel right at home. They gave me lots of information about the country and recommendations for my trip in the SA. It was just what I needed for my first night, not knowing anybody. Also, because there were extra rooms they upgraded me for free to a private room. I would definitely recommend this place

    A friend and I have a layover in a joburg and found Lakeview to be the best spot for it! Nice and close to the airport and jay was such a good host when we got there. Helpful when we wanted food delivery and could watch a movie on Netflix. He even dropped us at the airport the next morning. Would recommend Lakeview!

    Every one at Lakeview backpackers is really friendly and helpful. I actually booked a dorm room and got upgraded in my one private room. That was really nice. It’s lust not that busy but it’s alright for getting a view days rest after an exhausting flight or trip.
