    I absolutely love this hostel. The staff make you feel like family. It's very clean and has a great vibe. One of the best hostel experiences ever. The facility is nothing short of amazing and the owner and staff put a lot of love and care into the place to make sure the guests feel as welcome as possible. Beds are comfy. Shower is hot. Outside space has a lot of character and charm. 10 out of 10. Job well done.

    Lebos was a great place to stay. They bent over backwards to make my stay here comfortable and did their best despite the rain and the load shedding challenges. I wanted to get the true SA experience and I got more than I bargained for. Bike tour was great and the food was excellent. Well done Lebos will be staying here again. By the way they treated me better than some 4 star hotels I stayed at in SA. Thanks so much!

    Lebo is a legend and this place is magical. I’ve stayed in hostels all around the world and this was my favorite hostel experience ever. I learned a lot about Soweto and got to meet a ton of wonderful friendly locals.

    I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of my trip, it was fantastic! I stayed in the dorm, and each bed had charger and lights, the bed is very comfy (although the lower bunk is very low). Everyday, during the day, there were tour groups coming in for the bike/tuk-tuk/walking tour about Soweto. At night, you can hangout at the fire pit and just chill out with fellow traveler or locals. Wifi works in most areas. Hot showers are available 24/7. Food are great and the people are awesome! Love it!

    A true hostel, the staff is very nice and really helpful. We did the 4h bicycle tour and it was awesome, very instructice about Soweto today and during the apartheid. If you stay there I would highly recommand have dinner there as the food is excellent, also great breakfast. They also organise any shuttle you need which is great. We felt really safe in Soweto and we were able to walk to Mandela house! I would go back there anytime.

    Well organized airport pick up and very friendly driver Isaac. Warmly welcome from the staff and amazing food from „Mama“. Check out the lunch or dinner from her. They also offer breakfast, easy, but all what you need. First time I had a dorm for myself, due to not so many travelers around atm. They will get a pool soon which is great, you will love it there. Some rooms are new, allover very clean and safe! Staff is very friendly and helpful. They also offer some tours. Good stay in Soweto.
