This is a very nice place! People are very kind, and you have the opportunity to meet travellers.
You have everything you need inside the hostel, but the city is out there!
Even if everybody tells you the city, and downtown, is dangerous and you cannot go anywhere (this is not true), try to meet someone from the city, someone that understands the place and can show you the real Joburg. If not, you are going to stay in the hotel, making expensive tours in a private car...
