The backpackers is in a very nice and safe area of Pretoria though obviously far away from the city center. We arrived from Johannesburg having been robbed and scared. Isel, the landlady proposed us to bring us for visiting the Union Buildings at her charge which we really thanked. Night life is very cheerful and you can order all kind...

Upon my booking inquiry, Yzelle instantly connected to my needs and offered help beyond my expectations. She booked a local tour, 2 different car hires, and arranged my safari trip. Before I arrived in SA she was already an integral part to the success of my trip and I felt like I would be meeting a friend. Indeed, she and...

Stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting friends in Pretoria. The place itself was clean and secure and staff very friendly. Felt a little like staying in someone's home at times which can be both a negative and a positive but in general it was fine. Nice big gardens and in the evenings there were always plenty of people around to...

I stayed almost 3 months there (feb.-april 2014). First, the location: the Hatfield Gautrain station (very safe public transportation) is very close (about 10 minutes walk). It is very convenient. For example, you can go to Park Station (downtown Joburg in 45 minutes) or shopping to Sandton (about 30 minutes). You can also take the Gautrain buses to different places...

Friendly hostel with a great common area, with a great swimming pool, bar and barbecue, and a very spacious and well equipped kitchen. The staff was very helpful: we asked the girl at around 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve if she could book us a tour for the next morning, and she did it! The shared dorm was very confortable...

If you are going to stay at a backpackers in the Gauteng area, stay here!! The backpackers place is just 500 meters away from Hatfield Gautrain station, where you can really reach Pretoria, Jo´burg and the airport fast, easy and safe.

An excellent budget friendly accommodation. Very helpful staff, secure parking, use of great kitchen. We have stayed here a few times as a couple and enjoy returning . Central location on the edge of Hatfield 15 min walk to the Gautrain rail station means that Loftus Stadium and Johannesburg Santon CBD or Rosebank are accessible.

We stayed here in August 2013 and were surprised at the quality of our accommodation- opting for a standard double with shared bathroom, we felt secure and looked after by the owners and staff and their very friendly dog/bear.
