I actually dedicated a whole blog post to this amazing hostel as I was really taken by surprise and couldn’t believe how much of a hidden gem it was. It honestly 100% made my trip to Johannesburg and If I had not stayed in Curiocity Backpackers, there is no way I would have hung around Joburg for 6 days like I did. The hostel is super new and modern, but in a very historic district and building, which gives the place a very cool edge. It’s located in a really safe area of Joburg and there are tonnes of cool bars and hipster cafes nearby. Their free Wifi was the best connection I found in South Africa, the staff were beyond helpful and everyone staying there ensured there was always a great atmosphere in the bar or on the sundeck, or if it was warm enough, in and around the awesome hot tub out back.
