Gemini Backpackers Lodge is lovely. Home away from home. It is suitable for family vacation. My kids had enough areas to play around. We enjoyed tours with their cars and their self catering facilities were good. Meet Aron and his great team. Kudos guys! Sharp sharp

We stayed 3 nights with Gemini and loved it. The staff were incredibly helpful. It is definitely a backpackers, so don't expect the Ritz, but the atmosphere and awesome staff make up for it. Thanks! We'll definitely return next time we are in Jo'Berg.

We had a great one night stay at Gemini Backpackers. It was awesome how they picked us up from the bus rank for free and there was a small fee for them to take us back there the next morning. The second we walked in they helped us order pizza for dinner because we were starving. Best pizza we've had in over a year! We will definitely be going back there the next time we are in Joburg!
