Thank’s for the lovely stay! Was one of the nicest & friendliest hostels I have been to.

Thank you so much Bob & Joan. You made room for us even when the house was full & we had accidentally booked our room a month too far ahead. On a trip of backpacking around the world, meeting all kinds of new friends, you two feel like family already.  Thanks for the great hospitality .

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality . This is my first time in South Africa as well as being in a dorm & I felt so welcomed & relaxed here. If I am ever returning to Johannesburg, I will give you a call.  Thanks again.

Great Place, Safe Place.   Very helpful with everything, airport transfer & also with rebooking my Baz Bus Kruger Park ticket.  My flight was delayed so I missed my expected date, but you helped me change it & I had a great time.  Slept very  well also, thanks for the stay. Hope to see this place again before I leave S. A. or another time.

What a beautiful, clean, cosy & homely place! Toast & fruit in the morning was exactly what I needed. I enjoyed my stay & will recommend ” Bobs ” to friends. Thank you Joan for your warm hospitality.P.S. I will be back!

Bob’s Bunk House feels like a Bed & Breakfast at the price of a hostel! Comfortable, clean & friendly.I enjoyed it here while exploring Johannesburg, Kruger & Botswana.

We really loved the homy atmosphere after hectic Zimbabwe. Good beds & great showers. Also thank you for all your help regarding the Baz Bus & getting away.

Bob & Joan ” I once was lost & now I’m found ” Mike & I arrived in Johannesburg without a plan or clue of what we were doing. After we dialed your number, everything fell into place. In my years of travelling, ” Bobs Bunk House ” will go down as one of my favourite places to stay. Truly a ” home away from home ” Thank you.

Once again your hospitality has been amazing. I have had a great time here at your guest house & will never need to think twice about staying anywhere in Jo’burg again. I wish I could find other guest houses of the same quality in other parts of the world.
