Melville International Backpackers (MIB) is your ideal base in the vibrant heart of gold in Africa's Johannesburg. It is in easy walking distance to the famous 7th Avenue with all its fantastic eateries, clubs, galleries, bookshops, off beat clothes shops and music bars. Melville is unique in its 'vibe' as it reflects the surrounding Media/Arts/Student communities in this part of Johannesburg. MIB is your secure comfortable backpacker lodge that will be your base as you explore the province of Gauteng.

Close to two leading universities, you can walk around the corner to the Campus Square Shopping Centre, Laundromats, Fast food outlets, clubs and pubs at night and sidewalk cafes by day. Gold Reef City, The Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, Civic Theatre, Market Theatre, O.R. Thambo and Lanseria airports, the Cradle of Mankind historical site, Planetarium, Soccer City, Ellis Park and Wanderers sports grounds, are all a quick taxi ride away from MIB your backpacker base in Johannesburg.

Melville International Backpackers offers you comfortable new beds, showers, swimming pool, and a range of accommodation options, from dorm bunks to single room on suite with a double bed. Broadband Internet is available. Major bus and taxi routes close by.

Your ever friendly and helpful host, Peter, has run backpacking establishments and lodges for many years and offers his wealth of insight to help make your stay in Johannesburg worthwhile, safe, fun and memorable.
