Pros:The staff was extremely friendly and took the time to show me around the neighborhood and ensure that I was comfortable. TK went the extra mile to make me feel safe and introduce me to his friends as I was a solo traveler. I had a great time and next time I am in Johannesburg, I will definitely stay there again.
