I stayed here for a night recently on my way through Johannesburg. The room was nicely put together and very comfortable. Owners were very responsive over email and friendly in person.

We were expecting hostel accommodation but this is a 'home from home.' It was very lovely after staying in far more basic accommodation across Africa. It is quiet, very comfortable and very homely atmosphere. Thanks so much for making us so welcome. You couldn't do enough for us to make our stay at ease, highly recommended, Many Thanks :-)
