About The Lodge & Backpacker Rosebank Johannesburg

The Lodge is within walking distance of the Art Nevoux Theatre, Cinemas, Art & Culture Galleries, Shopping Centers, bars, Clubs and all means of transport.

Rosebank Lodge & Backpacker is our latest creation to become Part of The Lodge & Backpacker Johannesburg Group.

We have had the pleasure of servicing our travellers for more than 9 yrs.

Just opened the doors on June the 1st had some teething problems, getting the staff and management up to speed to deal with the enormous volumes of people that arrived at the beginning of the soccer World Cup, all is now up to the same service and quality as our other Lodges in the Group.

Thank you for your understanding over the FiFa period.

Our super friendly staff will support you and make sure you are secure and safe 24 hours a day.
Rosebank is a very old suburb the ancient flora makes you feel welcome and chilled, spend time on our patio looking over our garden with it's 100 + year old trees, enjoying late afternoons there, where you can join other travellers for a drink or maybe you can Braai (BBQ) something to eat, you will find just about everything you'd need here from, a tour and travel desk to an outdoor terrace to soak up the rays. Novels can be exchanged, a communal kitchen is open to all, telephone, fax, wi-fi and internet access will allow guests to hook up on line.
Our laundry facilities are on hand - for all those folk who have just come off of safari.

Rooms/dorms are provided with clean, fresh linen; all beds have plush duvets for added warmth.

We have a Boarding house next to the property:
It specializes in Short Term Accommodation
Offer the Cheapest Group Accommodation in Johannesburg if you find cheaper in the Rosebank area we will beat it?

Due to this being a new Lodging we are still working on finding it, its own unique attitude, atmosphere and feel. This is the same way our customers helped create our other lodges; your support in this transformation would be greatly appreciated.
