The only Backpackers hostel in Soweto and one of few in a South African township. We offer a unique experience to stay in our community and interact with people, learn about South African life, culture and our history. We are a three star graded hostel and Fair Trade certified. We work closely with the community in various projects and also offer interactive tours by bicycle, walking or by "tuk-tuk" around the township. We also offer volunteer opportunities.
We also give you a real taste of South Africa by offering home cooked Soweto meals.
Personnel très sympa, prêt à aider. Le terrain construit pour les enfants est une bonne idée et aussi le coin extérieur et intérieur sont vraiment charmants. Par contre d'un bon coup d'épaule la porte de la chambre était ouverte... Douche et wc ok. Quartier tranquille je suis même allé courir le matin traversé un "ghetto" sans aucun soucis.

Excellent experience and wonderful staff. Bunk room not very comfortable. They need mosquito coils and fans. Not a good sleep. Felt plenty secure.

The hostel is really cool and the location Soweto is very peaceable and quiet. I was impressed by the safety aspect ( they lock the place up at night).
Despite a problem with my online booking , the whole staff (receptionists, maids, cooks, drivers) were extremely pleasant and helpful, finally placing me in a nearby guest house of higher standards.
Their tours are a MUST, very interesting with knowledgeable tour guides.

They didn't have a room for me when I arrived because of that, but the staff soon fixed the problem and arrenged a place where I could sleep. Everyone was helpfull and my stay was pleasent.
