As budget accommadation goes, this is incredible value for money. They come pick u up from the airport, drop u back at the airport, have internet access all for free, and i'm pretty sure a normal taxi ride to the airport would cost more than a night here! The staff were incredibly helpful, and there was everything you'd expect in a normal backpackers, with basic clean rooms, and communal facilities. there's a pool and a bar, kitchen etc. The hostel is safe and quiet, and the building is locked at night as i found out after a nite out ;) Its only a couple hundred meters to the local shops, and a short drive to a couple of bars, while The centre of jo'berg is a good taxi ride away, and i'm not really sure there's much in the local vacinity to do, but it's close to the airport, so ideal if only stopping 1 or 2 nights, and aren't looking for somewhere with huge nightlife.
