Just down the street from its former location at 425 Fahrenden, this new backpackers lodge offers well appointed rooms at a fair price.

quiet neighborhood, within a walking distance to a lot of tourist attractions in Pretoria if you ever decide to go site seeing or simply hoop on this reliable shuttle service to get you where you should be. Rooms are clean, also all the common rooms. They have a good pool and beautiful garden

Stayed here for two nights as we were waiting for visas from a nearby embassy. The friendly people who run the backpackers gave us tons of tips to maximize our time in Pretoria and even drove us to the embassy to drop off our passports. Quiet place with a great breakfast!
