I am from the US and wanted to visit Joburg during my trip. I was a bit skeptical about staying at this backpackers because I though the neighborhood would be unsafe. When I arrived, I was relieved that the neighborhood attracted a lot of tourists and there were security everywhere to safeguard the WHOLE neighborhood! It was great! The hostel was clean and the owner was super nice! All the employees were extremely pleasant and helpful during my trip. I also met awesome people there. They had a music show at the place the second night I was there and it was fantastic!! I will recommend this place to friends and stay there again next time I am in Joburgh.
