Joburg Backpackers

Hostel in Johannesburg

In the leafy streets of Emmarentia, this pleasant, plainly decorated hostel is clean, safe and well run. The en-suite rooms are terrific value and open onto big grassy lawns; the eight- and 10-bed dorms are spacious and spotless.

Only breakfast is served (R35), but Greenside’s eateries are a 10-minute stroll away.
