Great hostel next to the city center in an nice upcoming district with many good bars. Never met so many nice young people from all over the world just on one place before.
Super friendly staff, great facilities, and amazing location! I read some comment on the location here so will dive a bit further: Its a 24/7 guarded area to the east of the city centre with great restaurants and bars. Probably one of the safest places you can find, reminds me a lot of east london with the street art and hipster ish cafe's etc.

Very nice Hostel with a bar, lounge (with TV) and pool table. It was nice to hang around in the bar, thank you Hainz for a warm stay.
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 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.

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.

I loved the backyard. It was great to sit and eat breakfast while watching the birds. Also, the other guests were very friendly and we got into many interesting conversations in the kitchen! It definitely made the experience.
The first staff I encountered was nice and friendly, as was the cleaning staff. The hostel offers a good opportunity to mix with locals, I was the only white person there. I really enjoyed talking to different personas - a local church group, a group of plumbers doing work in the area etc. The pool looked very nice and refreshing - if I hadnt been in the local autumn/winter I really wouldve enjoyed a swim.
