We have stayed at Mama lolo's guest house for our last night in South Africa and it was the best. Lolo, Paulinah and all the family are very kind. We loved lolo's smile ! They can go to find you if you are loose in Soweto because it's a very big city. The room are very clean and confortable. If you want to eat the night, Lolo is the best cooker in the world ! If you want to make a tour of Soweto, no problem the guest house has a guide. It was a very beautiful place without noise and not dangerous. We love our stay ! Thank you again for your hospitality !

the guest house was very clean,that i must say. when we arrived they welcomed us with warm arms. we were in joburg for fun so we always came back late and they never complained, not once, so i can say that they are very tollerant. the food is great. mama lolo came to have breakfast with us and she talked to us and was very friendly. our stay was a very enjoyable and we will definately go back there again.

I've been back and will continue to stay at Mama Lolo's when I visit Jo'Burg. I absolutely loved my stay along with my friends.

It was an excellent choice to stay at Lolo's Guesthouse. Mama Lolo and the whole family looked after us from the minute we arrived - nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were clean, the food good, but more important, the welcome we got was fantastic; we also learnt a lot about Soweto and South Africa in general. Staying at Lolo's added much to our amazing Soweto experience and we will certainly try to stay there again on our next visit ...
