“One of the best guesthouses around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I stumbled across Khayalethu by accident when two friends and I had to stay in Hatfield for a week, sorting out visas for the next part of our travels.

It was definitely more expensive than we'd being paying for the average hostel/b&b during our travels across Africa but the facilities and extras that came with the stay made it totally worth it and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

There were three of us and we were given a clean, spacious room for up to six people but had the room to ourselves for the whole week. There were lockers in the rooms, the rooms were cleaned regularly and there were several communal bathrooms and wcs.

There was also common areas and at that time, the b&b was doing pizza nights several days a week over stone ovens - you could choose your own toppings and they were absolutely delicious and good value for money.

Breakfast is included in the room price. It's a buffet but hands down one of the best breakfast set ups I've seen. There was fresh coffee/ tea and selection of juices everyday, a chef ready to cook a traditional fry up if you wanted and different hot foods each day ranging from muffins to sausage rolls and museli, yoghurt and fresh fruit if you wanted to be healthy.

The only downside I'd say is they should have a bigger breakfast room as because the breakfast is so good, people seemed to stay longer and enjoy the meals. Also, they have a reception area but on almost every occasion I went to the reception, there was no one there.

Great Location for Hillcrest Pool, suited out team's needs perfectly, especially the backpackers section. Clean and comfortable. Wonderful team running the place - went out of their way to help.

Great place to stay in Pretoria. Walking distance to nightlife, stadium, and everything else. Breakfast was great, staff was friendly, and rooms were clean. I'd definitely recommend it!
