    Curiosity Hostel Joberg is an awesome place when you want to discover this city. It is in a very living and outgoing area, where safety is a must. The staff of Curiosity are one by one super dedictated to max out your experience. We LOVED this place so much. It's a real vibe!

    I stayed twice over a two week period. The first stay was in a private; very comfortable. The second stay was in a female dorm upstairs; when it rains you can hear every drop due to the type of roofing, and you can hear everything outside from the dorm, the music from the clubs/lounges. I highly recommend the private if you’d like to get some rest. The staff was great. The website needs to be updated for prices for the tours as they did not match what was quoted at the booking.

    I was originally booked for one night, but had to spend three due to Omicron. The staff saved my day by giving me a last minute extension when somebody cancelled! The hostel is in Maboneng, which is one of the few places in Joburg that is safe to walk around. They will help arrange tours so you can explore the city safely. The bar is a lively spot for both travelers and locals, so it is easy to meet people. The only negative I experienced was low water pressure throughout my stay.

    The best vibe in Jozi! This is the real deal backpackers. The vibe is what you are looking for as a traveler, the staff smiling, helpful and fun. The location spot on. The beds were not necessarily the most comfortable, and the showers looked a bit worn - but that didn't matter at all. I'd stay here again!

    Only there for one night so didn’t get to properly experience the area and hostel. Staff were very welcoming and bar was chilled to drink at.

    Cool hostel, good vibe and I liked the evening events. Met some cool people. There can be some improvements on making sure the bathrooms are cleaned regularly and fully stocked, uncomfortable and loud beds. Another thing is that there is some confusion around when and who to order food from, and availability. Menu has a bunch of items served, but when ordered at the bar the answer is “we’re not cooking today” or something random. Not a bad experience, not an amazing experience.

    This place has lost all of its glory. People are not maintaining the small things, looks like a juvenile prison if you're into that kind of accommodation. Not family friendly and certainly not clean.

    The property looks and feels dirty. There was no hot water for a shower. Everything is overpriced. The facility was not properly cleaned. Extremely cold inside the facility. The internet was extremely poor inside the room. You must go into the bar area to get good wifi, which is not separate from the chill area. The pool table is too close to the bar area. I was constantly jabbed by pool sticks or asked to move. The chill areas seating is poor and flat cushions, it was very uncomfortable.

    Worst experience, there is more staff than guests and most of them are just hanging around not doing anything all day, just laughing obnoxiously and looking really bad at us, hogging all the place from guests. They’re also very not welcoming and basically laughed after I said I needed help after I was violently mugged in the neighborhood. Staff tried to scam me multiple times. Also the hostel is full of locals that make actual guests feel very unwelcome. It’s so unsafe out there that you can hardly walk passed the hostel street which allows the hostel to offer overpriced walking tours around. The so called swimming pool is too cold for anyone to bathe in, half of the showers don’t close, soap often unavailable when hygiene conditions are already very questionable. Overall, everything there you can do is leave asap.
