Nice staff


Our stay at Pretoria Backpackers was pleasant, but unfortunately the staff were inattentive and tended to take a long time to deal with our requests (specifically the reception and breakfast). The pool was too poorly mainained to swim in. Otherwise, the accomodation was roomy and comfortable. Overall the hostel was great value for money despite these relatively minor complaints.


The staff were so helpful and always about to answer any queries. The wifi connection was good and so was the food at the local pub. The rooms felt very homely and bathrooms were clean. Shame the swimming pool and back garden is under maintenance but there is one available a house or two down for free. Dinners brought there was homemade and yummy! I would visit again.


I will definatly be back
