I stayed for 5 nights on a stopover at Bob's Bunk House in the first week of February 2011. I choose Bob's based on the good reviews and apparently being one of the cleanest guesthouses/hostels in Joburg. It indeed was very clean, had a pleasant relaxed atmosphere and featured great service from Bob and his sons. A small breakfast is even included as well as towels. They also helped me with planning and arranging some sightseeing trips in and around the city. I best liked the full-day Soweto and Apartheidmuseum tour; make sure you ask for Jabo and that he actually does the tour -- his knowledge and enthusiasm make for a great day. Altogether a great place to stay if you're on a budget.
