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.

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
