Pension Idube is a charming early 1900s home in the leafy suburb of Auckland Park, Johannesburg. We are situated only four blocks from Melville's trendy 7th Avenue with its cosmopolitan restaurants, bars, coffee shops, antique stores and craft shops.

The Pension was one of the first backpacker hostels in Johannesburg and has been around for over 14 years. Our fantastic guest reviews attest to legendary service at very affordable rates.

We are currently undergoing a massive renovation. The 'grande dame' of backpacking is on her way to becoming hip-hop-and-happening, ready to welcome new and returning guests. All of our sun-filled rooms are being revamped, offering both the business and leisure traveller comfortable and clean accommodation.

We are in the ideal position for academic visitors to the University of Johannesburg and Wits. We are a five-minute drive from the SABC, Johannesburg CBD and Braamfontein. The shopping meccas, Sandton and Rosebank, are an easy 15-minute drive away and Soweto is about 20 minutes away.

You may ask what is our name all about, a 'pension' is a French word for a small hotel offering personalized service with a breakfast to weary travellers; 'idube' is the Zulu word for zebra.

    Melville Self-catering Accommodation
    Melville is a trendy bohemian suburb in Johannesburg, were you can wander streets lined with popular cafes, shops, restaurants and bars rather than walking in an enclosed shopping centre. It is also known as one of the city's vibey gay villages.

    The well-known 7th Street is a popular hang-out for a very cosmopolitan crowd. Sip glamorous cocktails on the sidewalk at Buzz 9 restaurant, while watching the local celebrities walk by. Spend an evening at Cool Runnings, a Jamaican paradise, complete with beach sand and reed beach huts. With reggae music, live drumming in the basement, and an exquisite beach bar, you are guaranteed an awesome night out.

    Another favourite spot is Catz Pyjamas, near the top end of the Main Road. Enjoy the fantastic vibe through the night, and into the early hours of the morning. It is the perfect place to grab breakfast or a cup of coffee after having had a night out on the town. There is also a new shopping mall called Campus Square, which has more mainstream outlets, food shops and restaurants.

    Melville is also home to the Melville Koppies Nature Reserve and Heritage Site, an archeological site with stunning views, near the historic suburb of Sophiatown. Here the remains of both Stone and Iron Age settlements can still be seen today. During guided walks and bird tours, visitors can get an idea of what the area looked like before the discovery of gold in 1886.
