Hostel is very close to the airport. There is a nearby supermarket (10 mins by walk). We felt safe in the neighbourhood. The staff in the hotel was very friendly and helpful.
Ronel and the staff are really great, they make you feel like at home. It is so close to the Airport. The beds are better than in any other backpackers/hosel and in hot days you can make use of the swimming pool. Braais and parties are common, but you can also relax if you are tired. It is just the perfect place if you are going to Joburg

Could not wish for anything more! Bob and joan are both very friendly and helpful, nice and clean rooms and it is easily accessable from the airport!
The property is located very close to OR Tambo International Airport and close to a Pick 'n Pay supermarket. The property is very clean and has a large sitting area, where you can just relax or chat with other travellers. Bob and Joan really know how to make people feel at home! Their friendliness and helpfulness is just superb! Although I only stayed for one night, I would definitely recommend this place to other travellers!

Its a decent place to stay for a night or two. Its clean with basic facilities, nothing fancy. There is an equppied kitchen for your use and breakfast is tea/coffee with bread each morning (make it yourself). Patrick helped us with cab booking to take us around. He is usually around and glad to offer any help. And just to make it clear for everyone, the airport pick is 60R pp ONLY if its 4 or more people. Its 75R pp during regular day and I paid 150R as it was night.
FANTASTIC STAY AT MBIZI´S !!! GREAT STAFF, GREAT LOCATION, CLEAN, SAFE, DEFINITELY WORTH CONSIDERING IF GOING TO JBURG!!!!

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.
