This is a wonderful place to stay if you're just travelling through Pretoria for a couple of days or even longer!

Even in the winter Pretoria Backpackers was wonderful and friendly. The host was gracious and service oriented. My wife and I are retired, 70 years of age, and loved being around a vibrate young group. The morning breakfast was fantastic. There was a place for our rented car. Our room was comfortable and quite large.

Staff is very friendly and helpful, the ladies ironed our clothes and offered to do washing. The breakfast was very good. Bedding was warm and towels provided. We were collected from the Gautrain station in Hatfield by request.

My family stay was short but by no means less memorable. The service was wonderful. We mostly enjoyed the freedom to come and go at our own leisure and our privacy. The staff was really helpful at all times including at night.

This place is nice and secure not far from a very friendship restaurant" eastwood. " We had a very large room in front of the swimming pool which I appréciate. The breakfast is good and the two dogs are funny. The manager is cool and can get you freely to the gautrain station.

Staying at this clean and safe backpacker lodge made it possible for us to visit both Pretoria and Johannesburg. There are interesting restaurants and shops in reach and the people are willing to help out and are very spontaneous and generous. The WiFi was surprisingly good as well!
