About HomeBase Melville

It is in easy walking distance to the famous 7th Avenue with all its fantastic eateries, clubs, galleries, bookshops, off beat clothes shops and music bars. Melville is unique in its “vibe” as it reflects the surrounding Media/Arts/Student communities in this part of Johannesburg. MIB is your secure comfortable backpacker lodge that will be your base as you explore the province of Gauteng.

As an approved agent for "BAZBUS", South Africa's convenient hop-on hop-off door-to-door backpacker's bus service you can be conveniently dropped right at our door, no heavy bags between airport, bus and trains or getting lost in a strange town.

Your ever friendly and helpful host, Peter, has run backpacking establishments and lodges for many years and offers his wealth of insight to help make your stay in Johannesburg worthwhile, safe, fun and memorable.
