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.

We had a wonderful time staying at Lebo's. The staff are extremely friendly and the cycle tour is an absolute 'must do' tour! The guides on the cycle tour are a mine of interesting information and great fun too. Showers are great, beds are good too and the food is delicious. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone!
