    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.
