HI - Johannesburg - The Backpackers Ritz Hostel
"The hostel is situated at the end of an anonymous residential street, with no sign or name on the cage-like double fenced gate. But don't get fooled by the name: this is no Ritz! it is a big hostel, very impersonal and with a cold atmosphere. Chance are that if you stay here is only because you're killing your time waiting to join some tour or some other the next day, so since it is not the staff friendliness or the livelyhood of the...

The staff was friendly and helpful and seemed very happy...

Johannesburg Travel Tips & Suggestions
Johannesburg is a great city to visit. The people are very nice.
— JACOB WATHOME
Johannesburg is a great city -- don't believe all the horror stories you hear! If you follow local advice you will enjoy this city and have a safe and wonderful trip.
One of the ugliest and most dangerous cities in the world -- avoid if at all possible.
One thing I'd recommend beyond a doubt is taking a 'walking safari'. Camping in tents and huts with no restrictions for the animals to stroll into camp. An experienced tracker leads the way following paw prints. Because of his knowledge of the animal's instincts, we didn't feel threatened at any time. It makes for good close up photography and videos.
