NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

The accommodation was good and comfortable.

- Sarasu Abraham

Despite signs promoting smoking only in designated areas, even the proprietor was smoking outside of them (e.g in the kitchen, right outside our room). Owner and other guests appeared under the influence. The whole place had a neglected and tired look. We would not recommend this accommodation to anyone.
- Tori Nielsen

My team and I really enjoyed the stay, it was fantastic. Its a definite YES YES...All thanks to the host, Derick.
- Cathrine Letswalo

The backpackers is the place to stay in Johannesburg if you want to meet nice people, have a good time and a great experience ! The mall is within walking distance, there is a pool and a gym at the backpackers as well as braai facilities and a pool table ... A great place to stay!!
Thank you for the week I spent with you, it really made me enjoy Joburg!

- Alix TOTIN

I would recommend not staying here unless necessary. I read that same comment after I'd booked and paid but before I stayed, and I wish I'd followed the advice. Upon arrival the staff seemed friendly and the place not too bad, with a nice outside area with a bar and a pool. We were given a twin room for the first night and told we could swap to the double room we had booked originally. We were happy enough with that, but the room was very small and noisy, the first night was quite loud with guests and staff in the lounge area. The next night the staff just drank all night and were drunk which wasn't pleasant. On another night when we came, there werescome visitors partying for their matric party and that was very loud with music until 3/4am and then after there were various people knocking on our door and trying to enter our room during the night. The beds didn't seem clean at all and when we moved into the double ensuite the bathroom also didn't seem very clean. Possibly value for money but I would rather pay a bit more for the better place.
