We stayed at Bob's Bunkhouse because they are the darling of the Lonely Planet thorn tree for hostels in Johannesburg, South Africa. The place was nice enough for a hostel (we even had our own bathroom) -- but it's also in the middle of nowhere -- and to get anywhere in Jozi expect to pay very hefty taxi fees. Bob and his wife are very nice, and they try hard to provide a safe and social environment -- but the reek of cigarettes is everywhere, the place is filthy, and there are no local restaurants, either in walking distance or for delivery (except for very average pizza). With that said, Bob's has quick DSL, a coke machine that dispenses beer, and loads of hot water. Does it get the Border Jumpers seal of approval? We say you might want to give this one a miss...

All the best Bernard Pollack and Danielle Nierenberg

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Bob and Joan were really helpful and I recommend staying here for anyone staying a night in Johannesburg because they have a flight the next day.
