Been there for 2 nights, and it was a pleasant experience. The staff was welcoming, the Karoo room was excellent (including a bath tub), good breakfast, billiards and TV in the lobby/kitchen, availability of a few shops from walking distance, excellent security of the area.
Negative thing was its location which is a bit far from anything worth a visit. Nearest shopping area is about 20mins walk to reach there. Taking the mini-bus, which cost Rand 11/trip is affordable but can be difficult for somebody new to Joburg. This place is great if you plan to stay outside most of the time and only come for rest at night (backpackers, right?).
Its worth mentioning that after the online booking, I was charged an additional 5% for credit card charges which was not mentioned anywhere before, so expect that surprise!
