We are a family of 6 that traveled from Cape Town to Maheking in December and needed a place to stay over in Johannesburg and continue our travels the following day. We booked at 2B Happy Backpackers. (first time at a backpackers) It's not an upmarket establishment, and if you're looking for 5 star accommodation, this is not for you....

Been there for 2 nights, and it was a pleasant experience. The staff was welcoming, the Karoo room was excellent (including a bath tub), good breakfast, billiards and TV in the lobby/kitchen, availability of a few shops from walking distance, excellent security of the area. Negative thing was its location which is a bit far from anything worth a visit....

I felt nice at this hotel. People there were friendly and I cannot complain about anything. I was treated there very nicely and I had quite nice room for R250/night. Stuff there helped me with anything I needed and the owner invited me to spend a movie evening at her place with other friends of her. Very sweet lady!

I stayed at the 2b happy guest house for 3 days in May 2014 and had a great experience. The staff were helpful, the room was well equipped and very clean. Free pick-up service from the train terminal was a bonus. I will stay there again.

Was really happy with the room, it was clean and tidy, and bigger than I expected. Really appreciated how welcoming and friendly the staff were too. Couldn't have asked for more during my stay in Joburg.

The private room was cozy with queen sized bed, huge wardrobe, massive windows and door going outside. The private bathroom assigned to the room while not that private (used by other people staying a few times) was quite nice, a large...

Thank you for your review. We do not recognize your name though. We aim to ensure the safety of our guests at all times. Only guests in self catering units get their own gate remote.

I rented the Africa Cottage with my two small children. Before arrival I was happy to find accomodations that accepted children, after arrival we were elated that it was also so beautiful at 2B Happy!!! We later found out that 2B Happy has the total package, safe, clean accomodations, the best customer service we've ever had, and other friendly visitors....
