When we told South African colleagues that we were visiting Soweto at the end of our African trip, they looked at us as if we were insane as they said it was unsafe and awful. However, we booked with Lebo's and had an absolutely fantastic...More
I stayed at Soweto Backpackers during the first part of my trip in South Africa. The staff is very friendly, and Soweto is beautiful! My only complaint would be for them to get mosquito nets because they were literally tearing everyone up overnight. The culture...More
If you really want to feel home in Johannesburg and understand how most of the people are living in this city you should definitely go there for some nights. Do a bicycle tour with a hostel guide and find brilliant places in SAs largest township
We didn't stay at the hostel, we only did their Soweto bike tour, so our review is based purely on that experience.
We booked the 4 hour bike tour through Soweto for R530 (quite a lot of money for tours in SA) and it was...More
A wonderful Place to stay in Soweto, the best way to experience this vibration township! Nice dinners and excellent cycling tours! The atmosphere is very familiar, it’s easy to meet people in the common areas! I recommend the place of all my heart!

Being on the walking tour of Soweto with Chico as a guide, and having the chance to meet Sowetan's and learn about life in Soweto was a privilege. I hope their tuk-tuk tour is as good. We have just started our trip but this... More
Being on the walking tour of Soweto with Chico as a guide, and having the chance to meet Sowetan's and learn about life in Soweto was a privilege. I hope their tuk-tuk tour is as good. We have just started our trip but this will be one of the most memorable days. Chico not only offers a wealth of information, but also presents this information in a way that is entertaining and heartfelt. Enormous thank u to Chico & Lebo's for making this experience possible!
