BF and I were backpacking and stayed here for a couple nights before our first safari, a few nights between the first and second safari, and for a few nights again after that second one. The owner arranged pick up from the airport and also from the main bus terminal in joburg. He helped us out with finding a place to get our laundry done, and drove us to the shopping mall so we could get some personal business out of the way. He was super nice about holding onto our extra luggage while we were on safari, and even let us have packages from home sent to the guesthouse!
There's a kitchen and dishes for communal use, and breakfast of tea, coffee, toast, peanut butter, jam, bananas each morning. The rooms are normal, clean; comfortable beds. They have some dorm style rooms, and also private ones. My only problem was that it was so cold!! It was almost warmer outside the house lol.
But overall, a FANTASTIC place to stay. If you are a backpacker or are using joburg for your hub to start safaris, you won't be disappointed with this place. The whole family is super nice, and will help you out with whatever you need!
