I've spent my first few days in South Africa and couldn't have asked for a more friendly introduction. As other reviewers have said, this is hostel is more like being at home. Bob & Joan are so warm and welcoming and willing to help and share their stories. They seem to attract an eclectic mix of travellers who all share... More

We started and ended our trip here. Perfect to gain information about travelling South Africa and experiencing the famous South African hospitality!! It's clean and cosy, has a great pool and is close to shops. One of our favourite hostels in South Africa!!

great atmosphere and very helpfull and friendly owners (Bob and Joan). Safe area and everything you may need pretty close by. Especially recomendable for the beginning or the end of a RSA-holiday (pretty close to the AP - JNB; Bob's doing AP-transfers).

My travel partner and I both felt well at home at Bob and Joan's. The hostel couldn't have suited our needs any more! Our trip started off rough with our airline delaying our luggage for a good 3 days and they were more than accommodating as we needed to stay longer than our original plan. Place was very clean, located... More

I have stayed at a few places in Joburg and this is one of the best. It's clean and the price is reasonable. Bob and Joan are wonderful hosts. They would help you with anything you need. I come here a few times a year. There is a place outside you can relax. I guess if you come at the... More

Stayed here for a couple nights before flying back to the UK. Bob is lovely, tea and toast in the morning. Really makes you feel at home. Everything clean. And the pool is lush. And it's really close to the airport! Highly recommend! Thanks bob!!

I stayed here with my twin daughters as we were on a journey to Cape Town for a wedding. They were accommodating with putting myself & my small girls separate. My girls loved the feeling of a home and to sit outside & eat breakfast while you feel the fresh air all around. Security is good that is why they... More
