I was on a work trip through SA and stayed here several times through the month. A lot of the people staying were long-term guests, interns or volunteers in Pretoria, and were extremely friendly and welcoming, making my work trip much more enjoyable. The staff were flexible and nice, even offering contacts to help with my work. I will stay... More

I stayed at this accommodation for Christmas and New Year 2010-2011.. When I arrived at the accommodation there was no staff to greet me, and the gate was locked, I had to wait outside for 30 minutes as one of the kind guests ran around trying to find a key to let me in. Once inside, I waited another couple... More

everytravler, Manager at Friends Accommodation Services, responded to this review

As the new Manager of this establishment, I would like to apologize for the upsetting time you spent at Friends Accommodation. Christmas time is usually very quiet and I know the owners were on holiday so most probably the staff on call took a break when you arrived; again we apologize for the inconvenience. The internet that was a problem... More
