The staff are nice. The bathroom in the dorm room was wonderful(has a full size bathtub). Good to meet new people and chill out around the pool area. The pool was fun to enjoy in the hot sunny day. The cook was nice and served a good breakfast. (They normally allow you to use the kitchen for your own meal. Transportation from/to the airport included.
Sitting by the bomb fire whilst the chef was making a South African barbecue and having some local beers was a real experience of South Africa!

Mbizi has a lot of character and a very laid back atmosphere. The owner was nice enough to put me and my friend into a 2 bedroom instead of the 5 person dorm we booked because we came during an off season and the room was open. There's also a bar in the backyard and the prices are pretty good.
I stayed here due to all the fantastic reviews I read and they weren't wrong! Mbizi Backpackers is a great place to stay and this was apparent when I saw many happy customers returning here during my 6 day stay. Patrick has been wonderful, you couldn't ask for a better host! He helped me with anything I needed and always with a big smile! :-) I felt like I was at my second home. I can't imagine there is a better backpackers in Johannesburg. It is away from the centre and has a lovely, quiet, relaxed, friendly vibe-which was just what I was looking for! Great garden too! Stay here and you won't be disappointed.

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.

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.

it makes me feel like am home, they are so friendly, getting your needs at ease, really value for money.
Nice staff, clean place! Kitchen was decent. Showers were hot and powerful, beds were simple but functional! Location is decent, though in Joburg, we kind of ended up taking taxis everywhere to avoid the minibuses and bus stations (shady). But Accoustix helped arrange rides all over the city, from Soweto to Montecasino, etc. Very affordable place and a decent stay!
