        Excellent guest house and services ”
        33 on First guest house is more than a guest house. We feel like we are staying at our home. The owner is very friendly, nice and offer very good services for us. We booked 2 days tour with them and they accompanied us whole 2 days with extremely good services and information of Jo'berg. Jo'berg is not safe city but we feel safe when staying with 33 on first like having a bodyguards. Also, the place is very clean, cool and stylish. It is also near restaurant on 7th street. We absolutely will come to this guest house if we are back to Jo'berg again. Highly recommended!!!!!

        Amazing ”
        The guesthouse is great! James on reception is extremely helpful and kind. We had a few problems with our tour pick up for Kruger and James phoned the company and sorted it all out for us! The breakfast is yummy! A range of cereal with a cooked breakfast of bacon with a choice of eggs. Kettle in the room with lots of tea and coffee. The rooms are very comfy and extremely clean! Bathroom has complimentary toiletries. As we used the room for a couple of days rest before Kruger Park the cable TV and extremely comfy bed was brilliant. Overall a fantastic stay.

        Good value for money”
        Comfortable room, well equipped, close to restaurants
        Bit annoying to have to ring for admittance as we only had a NZ cell phone so the call was quite expensive, but Johan arrived within minutes and was very helpful. I was able to use the internet there & he gave us a good rundown on local restaurants. The room was very well supplied with tea/coffee, milk. even biscuits and the bathroom contained everything you could want. We had a very early pickup next morning & the tariff included breakfast but no-one offered a takeaway version. I would recommend this as a secure, comfortable place to stay in a rather dangerous city.

        Breakfast included, secure parking, friendly staff, cute
        A nice little B&B, just outside the CBD, in a pretty safe neighbourhood. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was tasty. Secure parking was a bonus, but it was limited (2 proper spaces in total). The only down side was that internet was not included in the price and guests have to pay extra. I know SA has expensive internet, but it's frustrating not to have ANY free internet included in the price.

Bei Fragen und Problemchen wendet man sich einfach an Johann - er erklärt, berät, organisiert und gibt Tips. Das Gästehaus hat eine gute Lage - Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, sehr gute Resaurants, Bars und Cafes und Geldautomaten sind in unmittelbarer Nähe. Alles andere ist schnell und preiswert per Taxi zu erreichen (...einfach Johann nach einem Fahrer fragen! Der Fahrer holt einen auch an entsprechender Stelle wieder ab). Falls es uns mal wieder nach Johannesburg verschlagen sollte, werden wir mit Sicherheit wieder im "33 on First Guesthouse" übernachten.
