Lebo's Soweto Backpackers

Also known as Lebo's, this justifiably celebrated establishment which started off as a backpackers hostel and now includes more luxury options plus family accommodation has it all – comfy dorms, single or double rooms or space to pitch your tent in the back garden.

There's a kitchen for self-catering or enjoy cooked breakfasts, home-style meals and braais. We are fans of the delicious potjie stews cooked up for lunch in the park across from the backpackers. Lebo Malepa has a green thumb and has transformed this part of the famous suburb of Orlando West in Soweto, into a lush oasis, complete with a beach bar and hammocks under the trees. You can also book a cooking experience with ingredients grown in the garden. We won't blame you if you want to extend your trip. 

Lebo offers organised cycling, walking tours and tuk tuk tours, while the surrounding area is friendly and safe, with the main sights such as Vilakazi street within easy walking distance. 

You'll find Lebo and his team the consummate hosts with excellent knowledge of Soweto's well-known and not so well-known attractions.
