Stayed here for a couple of nights and did a tour. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Lovely restaurant and bar area just outside the main hostel where you can relax with a drink. Highly recommended.

Excellent value for money. From the owner to the staff, all made us feel welcome and appreciated. Will definitely be back and bring friends. South Africans have a misconception about Soweto. People are friendly, accomodating and there is a lot to be seen and experienced.

Being on the walking tour of Soweto with Chico as a guide, and having the chance to meet Sowetan's and learn about life in Soweto was a privilege. I hope their tuk-tuk tour is as good. We have just started our trip but this... More
