The property was safe and the hostel would book day trips.
You could travel only 5 blocks around the hostel. JoBurg is not a safe area for tourist. You literally are only allowed to walk 5 blocks from the hostel. I included the map you are given.
Maboneng is a really cool area with a lot of yummy restaurants - and cheaper than Sandton/Rosebank. Cool vibe at the hostel, is really easy to meet people as a solo traveler as the bar area is always packed with tourists and locals. The Soweto tour is a must - led by a guy from the township and is incredibly knowledgeable. There are a bunch of other tours available as well. Staff is super helpful and kind. Really enjoyed my stay here.
The walls are thin, bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Rooms are drafty during Winter months, bring warm pj's.
The location was great! The staff were absolutely amazing! I booked some great tours through the hostel! It's a great place to meet good people. Hands down I would stay at Curiocity again!
Perfect accomodation for backpackers. The personal is friendly and they help you if you need anything. It was just what we need in our day in johannesburg
Amazing people, amazing place. I couldn't imagine best welcoming in Joburg!!!!
