Hey everyone, my flight gets in on Nov 15th and I was wondering if anyone had reccomendations on good hostels to stay at. Anything safe and comfortable after flying for a whole day would be great. Thanks!

The Backpackers Ritz is one of the better hostels in Joburg. They can arrange an aiport pickup if you like, which is cheaper than taking a taxi....

check their website for more info/prices etc.

good luck & enjoy!

Look at either hostels in Jhb or Pretoria, most are either close to the airport or are within a reasonable distance and have some sort of schuttle / pick up arrangement.

Have a look at a list of hostels that are part of the Backpacking South Africa
