What travellers think

Travellers that stayed here think this hostel is best for

  • Volunteering
  • Relaxing
  • Sightseeing
  • Nature-lovers


Is this really a HI hostel? A guy took me to a room and said he'd be right back with a menu as I'd need to pre-order dinner. I waited. The TV was broken. I waited more and went to find him. The place was deserted. Reception was unmanned. Depressing. I got online and booked another hotel in the city. An hour later, the receptionist returned, he called a friend to take me back to airport (US$20 for the 10 minute ride). (This form REQUIRES picking four badges to describe the hotel, none do.)

I stayed here 3 nights, each night passing through between Vic Falls and Cape Town, and then back home. The first time was okay. The second time the internet wasn't working in the main building. The next time a week later, the internet wasn't working at all. They told me that they ran out of allowed data use. However, the next day it worked momentarily, but then not after that. The manager was nice enough to let me use his phone wifi, but don't come with high expectations of a working wifi.

Totally recommended. Only problem is the location.

Las excursiones que ofrecen son caras y en nuestro caso no se ajustaron al programa, el tiempo fue la mitad y parte de la excursión consistió en recoger en concreto a una persona ajena a la excursión en la ciudad y llevarla al aeropuerto, allí recogimos otras dos que llevamos a su hotel y finalmente nos devolvieron al albergue una hora antes de lo hablado, es decir, para nosotros un timo. Nos quejamos allí mismo pero claro ya estaba pagada por lo que no les importó lo más mínimo.

Incredible hostel. Is more a luxurious hotel than a hostel for a very reasonable price. Very good value for the money. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds and good included breakfast. Very near to the airport and perfect for people with overnight in JHN changing flights. They'll pick you up at the airport for a small fee.

Lovely staff, extremely comfortable beds, location only suitable for transiting in Joburg, there are no shops, restaurants or anything within walking distance. The onsite meals are well priced and suitable.

Excellent facilities, however the distance from activities outside the backpackers is quite a distance. You have to reply on a shuttle service whereas I prefer to walk
