It's not near some areas but no where in Joburg is. It's really close to a great minibus taxi stop, and very easy to get back to. Lots of close restaurants and Kim was amazingly helpful in future travel plans that weren't something he got paid for. Some try to sell you a tour, he just tries to make your trip great. I will be staying there again on my next trip to Joburg.
