I recommend the Birches Backpackers to any travellers visiting Johannesburg. The breakfast included was delicious and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. In addition the owner is friendly and helpful. He also has a Dalmatian called YumYum which adds a great homey feel. The only downside was the location and one shower; it was not very central for the activities our group had planned but it is close to a main road (Beyers Naude). It was a struggle in the morning sharing one shower with 10 girls! But overall a good stop to stay in Johannesburg.
