Pretoria Backpackers Guesthouse is located in a residential neighbourhood of Pretoria near Loftus Versveld Stadium. It has two separate buildings and it is a quiet and safe budget accommodation for the weary traveller, most of its visitors are backpackers. There is a secured parking and at night there is a guard.
Rooms are basic, but clean. The hostel has a patio behind the house where you can sit outside and enjoy a tea. There is a large sitting and dining room where dinner is served. You have to book dinner in advance. The breakfast is OK. A camping style kitchen is available for use by guests.
Bathrooms and common facilities are basic but OK, there's internet on the porch, and a fireplace that is comfortable during cold evenings. Note that Pretoria is at 1,350m and nights can be cold.
The Pretoria Backpackers hostel is a nice basic place, with welcoming staffs that run the hostel and the travel agency. The friendly owner François van Rooijen is omnipresent, he runs and operates the travel agency.
We stayed for one night before embarking with François on a Kruger camping safari which was very enjoyable and worth every penny.
