Property Description

Welcome to Lebo's!
Head out to the world's most famous township - Soweto. We are located in Orlando West, a vibrant community with rich history that is safe for everyone. Walk the streets and meet the people. Join one of our exciting and popular tours, on bicycle, by walking or car. Play soccer with the kids in our community park. After an active day, chill in the hammock in our peaceful garden. If you still got energy, experience Soweto by night at local pubs and clubs or relax and sit around our camp fire and listen to our African beats.

We also offer accommodation in a Backpacker Homestay. Your host is Lebo's granny who can give you more insight in to Soweto life and history. Accommodation are offered in dormitory and private rooms and you can enjoy a cup of tea or a home cooked meal in the main house. The Homestay is on a short distance from our Backpackers with the same attractions and activities on offer. Free shuttle between our Backpackers and Homestay!

We offer dorms, doubles, single and camping. Meals served daily. Self catering available.

    This hostel is awesome. Totally safe. Good people. Good atmosphere. Good food. I went on the bike trip which was nice. You can’t go wrong staying here plus it’s right next to the train station.

    This place is amazing. It offers popular tours, the traditional food they cook is so tasty and there is a kitchen that guests can use! I slept in the dorm which felt a bit crammed with and lacked enough outlets but other than that everything was great - it was clean. The staff was really friendly. The showers were great! There are plenty of places to relax (even with a fire pit). Atmosphere lacked simply because it was low season. I can only imagine when it is high season and fully booked :)

    Great place to stay in a wonderful community of people. Soweto is very safe and the people are very welcoming and genuine. The bike tour was a good insight of the current and past history of Soweto. The lunch and dinner was fantastic I would definitely stay here again!

    Lovely people, best way to experience Soweto and learn about the history of the area. It will correct many misconceptions you may have of the place & the people there. Showers and dorms were great. Small kitchen area if you want to cook your own food but great home cooked authentic food available for a reasonable cost. Don't forget your eye mask to help with sleep coz the blinds weren't gr8. I would happily recommend the place with the bike tour as a must do combo with your stay. Happy cycling.
