Great place to stay, specially if travelling alone, it is super easy to socialize, and the activities offered make it easy to explore the city safely in groups. Met great people, had great fun. Safety: the street is very safe, there are always people around. Asking at the reception is very helpful (open 24-7) to know where to go and where not to. Just be aware, going as far as a couple street could be already dangerous to go alone. The are some safe spots, and some not so safe, so be ready to use Uber to move even nearby (which I guess is a generality travelling alone in Joburg) Make sure you bring a lock for the lockers! Ambiance: very social. If you need a quite room, might not be your place. The bar is loud, the noise reaches the rooms (I was in room 1), but closes at 10pm, which is early enough to to have a long sleep. But the noise of the street it's still loud, specially on the weekend. Perfect if you want to socialize in the evening!

I haven’t stayed here. I have only been for drinks and to hire a bike. The bikes need some maintenance work, so choose wisely. They also need to provide better guidance on what routes to take when hiring a bike - make sure you plan yours beforehand. The drinks are great, offering lots of inexpensive drinks, in a comfortable bar setting with activities like board games and getting to know people from around the world.

I loved room 3. I didn’t like the layout of room 1. I like the kitchen and terrace space together. I didn’t visit the restaurant!! I LOVED THE SUPER WONDERFUL STAFF!!! I started twice just because of them!!
