JOHANNESBURG BACKPACKERS

PADDING 20PX/18PX/16PX

CURIOCITY Joburg has a history closely linked to the country’s own. It was the premises of the Pacific Press during the apartheid era, which published material for the ANC and Black Sash and is said to have offered refuge to struggle stalwarts like Mandela and Slovo. In the heart of the vibey Maboneng precinct, it’s now the perfect base for exploring the culture, history and creativity of the city. With Premium Rooms, Standard Double Rooms and Backpacker and Hostel Rooms available, you choose the way you’d like to stay and explore.

Great stay with great staff

Good and busy place to get to know people when you travel alone. You can get drinks and food on premise, you can book tours. I stayed in the loft, which was very comfortable. I wen on the Soweto tour which’s worth it. The hostel is at Fox Street with a lot of restaurants and little shops around. Safe to walk there.

Nonie and the other front desk staff are amazing!! They walked me to the safe ATM (there's one closer to the hostel that is apparently a scam), booked a smooth airport transfer and Nonie even let me use the shower after I checked out so I could be fresh going to the airport. The hostel has in-house guides who do different walking tours - they're knowledgeable and fun. Dorms, bathrooms and the shared kitchen are spacious and clean. Just be aware that the bar downstairs remains noisy late into the night. If you're out late in this neighbourhood, it's best to take Uber.

very nice hostel with excellent vibes, lots of live music and good location (in mabo neng). very friendly and helpful staff. walking tours were on the expensive side but i didn't do any so i can't speak to their quality. there is some noise so if you want a quiet relaxing time this may not be your vibe. i recommend it!

My friend and I spent our christmas there, before going on a save volunteer project. They prepared a full course christmas dinner meal for people who signed to attend (for an extra cost, ofc). Very delicious and homey, got to know new people who were staying there (which were all lovely and pretty friendly). Staffs took a good care of us, giving advices ect. nice location too, few coffee shops near by.

To start, the staff at Curiocity are hospitable and caring. The hostel has an inviting common area with a lively bar that's great for socializing. Kitchen facilities are terrific while the on-site restaurant serves very tasty meals. Comfortable dorms too, with plenty of space.

I loved the 'feel' of this place. The staff are wonderful and they have, without a doubt, the BEST barista in Joburg!! There are single rooms available as well as dorm style accommodations and I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind sharing bathrooms.
