Urban Backpackers

Urban Backpackers is about connecting urban cultures from around the world.

We’ve built a home in the heart of Joburg for travellers to experience the real beauty of our city.

We offer people from all walks of life a chance to see, feel and celebrate Joburg from our hostel.

Our roof top area with its striking views of the city is the social space to connect and enjoy local
food. Whether travelling alone or with friends, our dorms cater for both single and mixed gender
while our private rooms are suitable for sharing.

To make your stay warm we provide 24hr reception and security, free wifi and a shuttle service as
well as bike and car hire.

Our hostel is around the corner from Carlton Centre, within Marshalltown, which is the cultural, and business district of Joburg.

We’re also close by to Braamfontein, Maboneng and the historical mining centres.

Interest areas such as the Absa Bank Museum, the Standard Bank Gallery and
Chief Albert Luthuli House are all less than 1km from Urban Backpakers while O.R. Tambo
International Airport is 20 km away.

We can’t wait to host you and share the wealth of our city with you.
