I stayed here at the beginning of my South Africa trip and it wasn't the greatest start. After flying almost 24 hours I had to wait a couple of hours for my transfer to pick me up (even though the hostel told me he was already waiting). On getting to the hostel the staff seemed bored and sometimes rude. I have stayed in endless hostels so l know you get what you pay for but this hostel wasnt really worth the money andbeds were old and very uncomfortable making it difficult ro sleep. On the plus side there is a great view over joburg from the garden but I wouldn't choose to stay here again.
