- Pension Idube is a charming early-1900’s home in the leafy suburb of Auckland Park, 4 blocks from Melville’s trendy 7th Avenue with its cosmopolitan restaurants, bars, coffee shops, antique stores and craft shops. The Pension was one of the first backpackers hostels in Johannesburg and has been around for many years - we've now morphed to a fabulous budget B&B. Our fantastic guest reviews attest to our fantastic service at the some of the most affordable rates in Johannesburg. Our massive renovation and redecoration is almost complete, and we are well on our way to being hip-hop-and-happening, ready to welcome new and returning guests. All of our sun-filled rooms are being revamped, offering both the business and leisure traveller comfortable and clean accommodation. Our breakfasts are legendary, and are served around the pool during the summer months. We are in the ideal position for academic visitors to the University of Johannesburg and Wits (University of the Witwatersrand). We are a 5 minute drive from the SABC, Johannesburg CBD, Braamfontein, Rosebank and Soweto.
