The rooms are equipped with everything needed, clean, free fast Wifi inside the room! Great value for your money! The staff are so friendly and helpful! The lodge is located in a safe neighbourhood with restaurants and coffee place just down the road. The best backpackers lodge in Pretoria!

Despite noting that there were quite a few negative reviews, we decided to stay here as we'd had numerous positive experiences here over the years (admittedly, the longer ago, the better it was). And it must be said that we are very adaptable and not at all difficult to please. Anyway, I can safely state that it was NOT what... More

This is now my second stay at Pretoria Backpackers and it is by far the best backpackers lodge I have stayed in! The rooms are excellent - lovely and clean! The staff are welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Shuttle transport to and from the Gautrain Hatfield Station and a full breakfast is included in the price - with eggs and... More

As we arrived our booking was missing. Stayed in the cottage for one night - really cold during wintertime. Garden was not prepared, wood was lying around. Nobody told us or had shown us the pool at the other house. Stuff was helpful to find another accomodation.

In fact someone else booked a night for me here. I was planning to stay two nights but left after one. As others have said, the place is dirty. The bathroom in particular was dirty, the toilet was the worst part. I can accept hostels where the furnishings are old and worn, but there is no excuse for lack of... More

I remained here for one night before travelling to Brits. I was in a room with 3 other people and I personally found the bed rather comfortable. The yard is lovely and in my opinion for a hostel the food was amazing. I can't really comment on price as I was working with a project and this was included so... More

We stayed in a double room back in February 14. We tried call 3 times and also emailed to make a reservation. Never got a reply. When we arrived into Pretoria called them as they advertise free transfers and to try and make a reservation again. They picked us up from the train station and then the next day charged... More
