Only a 10 minute walk to Hatfield Square, Restaurants, most Embassies, Shops etc. and 500m from the GAUTRAIN. We are close enough to the hustle but just far enough to be surrounded in tranquillity.

We pride ourselves on honesty, cleanliness and getting you the best deals possible and that is probably why, based on client ratings, we have the highest percentage rating of the Pretoria hostels on Hostelworld, we are also one of only two Backpacker hostels in the area recommended by the Peace Corps to their members.

We are a great base for exploring Pretoria, Johannesburg and Gauteng in general, somewhere to relax and get accustomed to the country before exploring further into Southern Africa. If you want suggestions on what route to take, how to spend your time, what’s value for money, then simply ask. We put you first and we do not believe there is anywhere that will try harder to help you enjoy your stay in the capital of South Africa.

We can arrange quality tours both locally and further afield, we can even arrange several tours at over half the price of some advertising companies! Look at the trip (and the price!) of trips we can arrange for you to Kruger Park! See the tour page for prices and what you will get for your money and compare it to what others offer! We also operate a voluntary donation scheme whereby we hope to take local people on trips for free, see the local tours page for more information.

We are based in a quiet street in a safe area next to the University sports grounds and very close to the shops and nightlife of Hatfield and many of the embassy buildings. Enjoy the pool, the fabulous garden, the lapa and braai area, a bonfire if you wish, DSTV, and one of our many games and social activities.


* Special on 4 day 3 night Kruger Tours!! Do not miss out ..
* We will take care of your Overland Safari’s and/or touring needs. Day Trips to a Private Lodge also available.
