Emerald Backpackers is set on 1.5 acres of land and offers comfortable and affordable accommodation set in a safe, secure and tranquil garden environment close to the Johannesburg-based OR Tambo International Airport.

We have four dormitories, two for ladies and two for men. Our dorms sleep from four to twelve people, with a shared bathroom down the hall.

On the doorstep of the OR Tambo International Airport - yet set in tranquil gardens away from the hustle and bustle of city life - is Emerald Backpackers, offering safe, secure and affordable accommodation.

Situated in Kempton Park (Rhodesfield) and established 14 years ago, Emerald Backpackers is a mere 10 minutes' commute from the airport, yet is an oasis of peace, with lush gardens that attract a host of South African birds.

What’s more, we offer a free shuttle from the airport, so that you don’t have to hire a car, navigate the highway or find your way around.

Sandton, a bustling business and leisure centre, is a mere 12-minute Gautrain ride from the Rhodesfield station (500 metres from Emerald Backpackers), with a major shopping centre within easy walking distance and buses to take you to your destination of choice.

OR Tambo International Airport is situated approximately 30 kilometres east of Johannesburg and next to Kempton Park, a pleasant and prosperous city. Emerald Backpackers is located 25 minutes from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

We offer overnight and longer stay accommodation, where guests can enjoy a variety of services and indulge in home-style meals with a local flavour in our restaurant or sit back with a drink in our bar. A selection of South African beer and wine is offered. Have a look at our accommodation page for rates and other details.

We are also currently building an aeroplane viewing deck so that our guests can enjoy watching them fly in and out of the airport, whilst enjoying a sundowner or snack on the deck.

Booking through SleepOut was easy and the host responded instantly. Emerald Backpackers is perfect for overnight layovers at the O. R. Tambo airport. They offer free airport transfers so I was collected at the international terminal at 21:30 and then dropped off again at 05:00 in time for my early morning flight. Just a tip: if you arrive after dinner has ended and you leave for an early morning flight you'll miss the included breakfast, so ask for your packed breakfast the night before so you can enjoy it for dinner instead. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I'd use these guys every time I travel through Joburg.
