It was a very African lodge. And they have very friendly dogs which made me feel more at home. The bomb fire was very nice and so was the local beer and food. I got 5 star service all the way.
The place had beautiful african decoration. Very quiet and definately a place where you can just sit back and relax after a long journey (very close to the airport). The staff was super friendly and really made me feel welcome and at home!

Awesome place.. everything just felt like home. It's a beautiful house in a safe district, just not that easy to get there but they offer -free- airport pickup within 20min after calling! The kitchen was fully equipped, potatoes, onions, a lot of spices, free instant coffee all day, breakfast and towell included... what do you want more? I'll definitely come back. Highly recommendable! P.s. it's really cheap renting a car in JHB (like 20-24$/day)
The location was very good (close to the city centre). The staff was friendly and helpfull.

Quite funky and convenient to our Hotel conference location. casual vibe. Clean ablutions with loads of hot water. Quiet and safe. Our host turned our electric blankets on for us before we arrived home late. such a caring touch. We are both businesswoman and found the stay fun and affordable although we could afford 5 Star.
Great place to stay! Patrick and Matthew were very helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend the airport pickup! The hostel is quiet, very clean, has a great kitchen, internet and living room area.

Staff were very friendly & helpful. A very relaxing location to stay in before a tour. Good sized private rooms and comfortable beds. Free airport pick-up. Free 30 mins per day internet. Evening meal was good value. Nomad Guides / Drivers stay so no transfer costs if going on tours with Nomad.
The current staff are very helpful and friendly. The place is a way out of the city but they will help you with transport and car hire etc. There are plenty of tours available and there is stuff to do here too. It really is a family and family-friendly place and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Lodge to travellers.

This place is located near the airport, so it was very convenient for us as a base while we were travelling throughout Africa. Also very safe to leave your belongings if you are going on trips to other countries. Mavis cooks lovely breakfasts.
The immediate proximity to the airport is terrific, and transfers to & from the airport are free and done attentively. We stayed there on two occasions and both times the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Very clean and safe. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and informative. The free breakfasts are tasty hot meals, making a stay here incredible value for the cost.

There is a large swimming pool at the property, so not only is it good for an overnight stay, but for longer ones as well. They also have facilities for lunch and dinner, which is also extremely handy when without transport.The staff were very helpful and all requests were dealt with promptly.
CLose to the airport, secure, free shuttle to and from the airport. Good breakfast and decent coffee! The common area has free wifi and I met some lovely people.

The location is great, right near a lot of restaurants, grocery stores and other shops of interest. The atmosphere feels more like a house than hostel (though it is a house converted into a hostel) because there's no reception desk and everything else is very communal. Kitchen is well-stocked with plates and such. Overall, this hostel is a great deal for the money. Would definitely stay there again.
The location is good - just some steps away from the 7th street in Melville and safe for being in Joburg. All the facilities - sports club, restaurants, bars are within walking distancem and one bike is available from the owner. However, the local minitaxis should be catched to go elsevhere (Apartheid museum is the must!) or the car is always a safe bet! The hostel is calm and most of the time, if it is not too busy, you would feel like renting a shared appartment rather than dorms!
