    Pretoria Backpackers is an awesome place to stay. It's in a quiet, clean area of Pretoria. It's easy to get to via the Guatrain Hatfield station. Just take the Guatrain there and then catch the bus just outside it. Take it to Lofstas Versfeldpark. The hostel is just a block away from the stadium. The rooms are spacious and amazing! I had a bath tub in my chalet. A nice deep bathtub perfect for a bubble bath! There are two very big and lovable dogs on the property. It's a safe place to be.
