We stayed for one night in Johannesburg - Brown Sugar offers to fetch you from the airport / station for free - a great service, especially if you consider their already quite cheap rates!
You can also book their driver for a return or other activities, they offer dinner (book before) - all prices very reasonable.
Several "cosy" areas and a bar where you can sit and relax. The house is really huge and still charming, but nevertheless its old - you can see that - but the rooms and bathrooms were clean and everything I ask for at a backpackers.
