We are located in the quiet, suburb of Emmarentia - next to the Greenside strip of restaurants. We have a large garden with a swimming pool as well as a patio for you to relax & feel the grass under your feet.

The environment is friendly for families with children, as well as large groups of students or friends looking for a safe environment. We do not exclude the lone traveller either, come and gather your thoughts with us at Joburg Backpackers.
