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

I just got back from an amazing stay at 1322 Backpackers International and a wonderful place it is. The rooms are cozy and very clean. The shared bathroom space are cleaned on a daily basis and there are signs everywhere to remind you to conserve energy!! There's a huge garden area and bar. But what really stood out for me... More

We had a great stay at 1322 backpackers and even extended our initial stay. We had a lovely little wooden cabin at the rear of the property which was comfortable and cosy. The bathrooms were nice and clean, great communal area including kitchen, large outdoor table and an honesty bar. Monique was wonderful, on our second night she arranged a... More

From the moment we arrived at 1322 we were made to feel right at home. The cabins were great, beds were comfortable and the bathrooms clean. The common area had a nice and relaxed feel about it which made it good for meeting fellow travellers. Monique was extremely helpful. From arranging a Braai one evening to organising a day at...

We had a really nice stay at the Backpackers. The people were friendly and the bath was clean. We stayed in a room for two people. It was really clean. They have a big table outside, where you can meet with the people. We really enjoyed it. Thank you

We really enjoyed our stay at 1322. The staff are incredibly friendly. They make you feel like part of the family. During our stay they organised a braai and a wine and cheese night. The location is in a safe neighborhood right next to the university. Its walking distance from shops, restaurants and the Gautrain. We stayed in Zazu room... More

1322 was officially our home away from home. We spent approximately two months at the backpackers and we found it to be safe, excellently located (e.g., walking distance to car rental companies, shopping and the Gautrain which you can catch to/from the airport), had reliable internet, included a complimentary breakfast and had friendly staff. The owners are also amazing and... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
