I stayed for 3 weeks in April 2014 as a break from work, visiting some friends and just relaxing.
The private room was cozy with queen sized bed, huge wardrobe, massive windows and door going outside.
The private bathroom assigned to the room while not that private (used by other people staying a few times) was quite nice, a large bathtub and shower.
All the staff where quite nice and friendly, they were busy most of the day cleaning the house/garden and were easy to find.
Location is very far away from anything notable in Joburg, which is a downside. Umoja has long left victory theater which was 5mins walk away. I used taxibuses, yeoville taxi service and Uber (private taxi) during the trip, was no real difficulty getting anywhere. It was 11rand to Hillbrow or Alexandra, both pretty notable places to visit. Area was quite safe as its mostly sandwiched between private residencies with flats along the main road.
The location is across the road from a huge private venue and near a church, it did get quite loud on weekends. The rooms thick curtains did block most of the noise, but was a little bit of a con.
Wifi was 150Rand for 3GB, pretty affordable with red button.
