Beschreibung

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.

    I felt very safe, houses around are fine. Garden and Poolarea on the top of the hill are very nice to relax. Beds in the Lodges are very comfortable and lovely. All what you need, you get in the Hostel as well a good warm meal and all for reasonable prices. All during the daytime anybody is there to help you/answering your questions you have. A lot of occassions to find your favorite place in the house, in the garden, on the terraces...You can be sure, to feel comfortable here.

    We loved the place! Staff was extremely friendly and helpful! We loved to explore the building and outdoor facilities. Pool with a view over JNB. Beautiful terrace with super cosy sofa. Abundant free breakfast. Delicious, inexpensive dinner available. Lots of information. ATM was without money (no problem as we had withdrawn money at the airport). Airport Pick-up was very easy and reliable. Thx for the great hospitality!

    We stayed there for one night and enjoyed the hostel a lot! There is free breakfast with scrambled eggs and the view from the pool is amazing! We stayed in a two bed room and it was a little wooden house - really cute! If will ever come back to joburg, we will stay there again :)

    Die mitarbeiterInnen waren super nett. Jedoch ist die Lage nicht perfekt,wenn man kein eigenes Auto hat. Sonst gibt es auch einen Parkplatz. Wifi leider sehr schlecht! Günstige Waschmöglichkeit vorhanden. Sehr ruhige lage.

    The infrastucture is very good. They have a pool, laptops, charging stations, a great kitchen and a nice bar with a pooltable. But there were very few people and the staff was watching Zulu sitcoms which made it strange to stay in the bar. We booked a tour to the strekfontein caves, which was nice but to expensive and the driver (who was hired by the hostel) didn't talk to us or gave any informations about the city even if we tried to get them. We felt safe all the time and the price is ok.

    Ich würde nicht wiederkommen. Vom Hostel aus kommt man nirgendwo zu Fuß hin, die Rezeptionistin war super unfreundlich und war überhaupt nicht hilfsbereit, obwohl wir mehrere Fragen hatten und das Zimmer bestand aus 18 Betten, in dem meine Freundin und Ich mit einer anderen zu dritt alleine waren. Wir haben das Schlafen gehen so lange aufgeschoben, bis die Rezeption geschlossen wurde und das Wlan ausgeschaltet wurde, weil wir uns so unwohl in diesem Schlafsaal gefühlt haben.
