About
Description
Designed for you, the curious adventurer who just wants to get out there and live a little, wander a little and wonder a little, Curiocity is your base to explore. Clean design, cozy accommodation, local More culture, and a community of like-minded people mean that, whichever one of our cities you’re in, you’ll feel like you’ve found your tribe. Step out the doors of our flagship design hostel, and you’ll find yourself in the heart of Maboneng, one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Johannesburg (or ‘Jozi’ as we South Africans call it). With restaurants, cafés, museums, and markets tucked away on every corner, you’ll want to explore every inch of this gritty, gorgeous urban jungle. Less
