    Man could not fault this place, everything is brand new, beds are comfortable, place is secure and the staff are great at helping you with literally anything! I previously had an incident with a guy pulling a knife on me and felt a little uncomfortable walking around the streets but the hostel was so understanding and sent one of their employees everytime I went out. Honestly by far the best service I've ever had at a hostel! Would definitely come back in a heartbeat

    Very good modern hostel, enjoyed my one week stay here. Staff were very friendly and helpful Room was secure and clean Location is a bit sketchy but i was there a week and had no problems going out in the immediate area. Speak to the reception and they will tell you the do's and don'ts. They even walked with me to the supermarket and Gautrain until i got the hang of it. Activities very night. Good atmosphere with travellers from all around the world. Would definitely recommend
