The location and staff are very warm, rooms are clean with all covid protocols observed. Only one room with ensuite which could be more convenient as bathrooms are shared and in the rain as i went to the toilet in the ams i fell :-(

Started in the early 2000’s Lebo saw a need for a backpackers for tourists as tourism slowly infiltrated Soweto. It may be called a backpackers but in my opinion it’s far more than that . It is impeccably clean and attention to detail is perfect . Enough plug points in rooms, sanitizers , great adherence to COVID regulations and smiley, friendly staff. Breakfast was a traditional South African breakfast and filing . There are bicycle , walking and tuk tuk tours. I chose the tuk tuk tour and really enjoyed mingling with the locals and being part of their energy in this vibrant township . My car was parked safely over night and I had no reason to question safety at any point. Wished I could have stayed longer. Both Lebo and his wife Maria are fantastic

Hey there, we stayed in Lebos Soweto Backpackers for about a week and we find this place is an absolute gem. It's more of a hotel then a backpackers. The staff is great and always tries to make you as comfortable as possible. Definitely try out their typical African Dinner Meals and explore the area by doing one of their guided tours of Soweto. Greetings, Wasili and Sylvia
