The hostel is located in Hatfield, which is a nice and safe area. The nearest supermarket is about 10-15 minutes away, as are some bars and restaurants. I have stayed in the single room as well as a twin bed cabin. Both rooms were super clean and just what I needed. A bed, a fan, a towel and a small... More

I love this place, i've stayed there 3 times (2013, 2014 & most recently November 2015). The owners & staff are so kind, welcoming and friendly. Everywhere is clean, tidy & well presented. I've stayed in 3 different rooms (a dorm, a private room & a cabin) all have been clean, tidy & comfortable. The bathrooms are always clean, the... More

Highly recommended for travelers that are seeking a quiet place to rest the head, and relax. It is very close to all necessary places. Will gladly be coming back! And will gladly recommend this establishment to all my... More

I stayed for a night with a friend after a long bus ride from Maputo and couldn't have been happier. The place was clean and comfortable, the woman who owns the place could not have kinder or more accommodating. A must stay for a relaxing night!

Stayed here for a couple of months during spring 2011 for nurse training during my studies. I enjoyed every single day! A safe place to stay with very helpfull and service minded staff. We gained a lot of new friends staying here, enjoyed the braais (BBQ) and I recommend it warmly!

We stayed over at 1322 Backpackers International when we were up for the Springboks All Blacks test match in July. Driving up from the Eastern Cape ensured that we were tired upon arrival but the staff were very helpful. There is a nice braai and bar area that allowed us to bring the gees for the two nights.

Cozy clean rooms. Plenty of facilities in the areas. Very kind and helpful owners who loved to help us with practical advice to start our trip. I would recommend everyone to stay at this place and have a beer and braai (BBQ) there.

This was a great stay just before we left south Africa to Paris. The owners are very nice and good advisors. There is a good atmosphere there and the private rooms are really nice. We recommend it for sure!

Certainly one of the nicest backpackers I've stayed in, and I've been in a few around the world. The owner Isel, and her daughter Monique, really make you feel at home. I felt like part of the family, and I only stayed a couple of nights. Nothing is too much for them, anything you need, they are more than happy... More
