About Lebo's Soweto Backpackers

Head out to the famous suburb of Orlando West for a unique experience. Get to know Soweto by walking the streets and learn the township lingo, join our tours – cycling or walking - play soccer with the locals, and watch the big games. Volunteer in one of our community projects and meet people that make development happen. Take a walk to museums, restaurants and shebeens, visit the church and sing to the gospel tunes. Enjoy a delicious barbecue around the camp fire and dance to the local beats from drums and kwaito music.

We're proud to be one of the few black-owned backpackers and one of the few backpackers in a black community in South Africa 2007 Tourism Investment Award winner. Don’t miss the opportunity to indulge in home-made Soweto stews, curries, spicy and mild salads, and our tasty barbecues. Enjoy the cosy outdoor area with fireplace, hammock, outdoor games and our funky beach bar, and listen and dance to African beats and reggae rhythms.

                      I think the best hostel I ever stayed. Beautiful room, great walking tour and delicious food. The service was super friendly.

                      The room was beautiful because it includes the bathing room in side
