Description de l’établissement

This very spacious, comfy, safe and secure 'Ex-Mafia' mansion was built in the 1970's by an infamous drug lord. When the Godfather moved out the backpackers moved in and they made this castle their home since 1999. The current owner (since 2005) has made many renovations and improvements to the hostel to accommodate all types of travelers. We have everything you need and keep improving our facilities and services because the owner is an experienced traveler herself.

    Équipement au top, Lieu charmant et Staff sympathique. Que demander de plus ? Seul point noir au tableau, l'emplacement qui nécessite un shuttle / taxi / uber pour ceux qui n'ont pas de moyen de transport. Pour les autres, c'est le parfait backpacker.

Et super œufs brouillés ;) Un peu loin du centre de joburg ( prendre taxi ) Et commerces à 1,5 km à pied ( épiceries chinoises et resto chinois ) Possibilité de se faire récupérer à l'aéroport gratuitement Mais pas de s'y faire déposer (275 rands en trajet commandé )

    The hostel is clean and quite safe - it's a lovely property and the staff are happy to help if you need to get anywhere. Not much atmosphere, but it wasn't high season when I stayed so wasn't very busy anyway. Only thing I'd say is that it is not in a safe area, you can't really leave other than by Uber - I know this goes for much of Jo'burg but particularly here. But if it's a stopover for the airport or something, it's ideal as it's pretty close and not in the city centre.

    Nous avons eu le droit à une colonie de vacances, avec plus de 70 enfants. Donc je vous laisse imaginer le calme de l’hostel. Dommage car en elle même l’auberge est sympa. Le personnel est gentil et nous a compris et a fait un geste.

    Very nice staff, smiling and helpful. However, our room (Madiba) was super cold because the windows were broken and no one was able to fix it.
