Lodging/Place to stay in Soweto?

We are looking for a place to stay for two nights in Soweto in the 1st week of July. Three adults and a 14 year old. Best option I've found so far seem to be the Soweto Hotel. Looks fine. Anyone able to suggest additional options?

If you are adventurous and want a genuine Soweto experience, there's a brand new (as of September 2013) backpackers hotel in Kliptown. There are private rooms and small shared dormitories. Prices start at 85Rand. I spent time in Kliptown recently working on an art/photography project and was shown around this place by the friendly owner.. It was clean, spacious and newly renovated. The address is 1848 Fourth Street, Contact: Nomsa tel: 0784318306 or 0789993458 This is not for everyone, only those who want to see and experience the real Soweto: Kliptown Backpackers If I return (I live in New York City) I would stay here.
