I spent almost three months at 1322 Backpackers (July, August, September). It was fantastic. The owner (Yzelle) and the staff treated me like a family member. Everybody was really nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and the location is perfect (safe area, Gautrain station and shopping center within walking distance). Nice outdoor facilities, interesting people to meet.

I stayed in the wooden chalets at the back of the property. There`s a good kitchen, plenty of space, and a good sized pool. The management is friendly and helpful. Getting there and away is easy with the Gautrain station a few blocks away. Points to note: the wifi is only really useful in the eating area, so if you...

The hostel is located in Hatfield, which is a nice and safe area. The nearest supermarket is about 10-15 minutes away, as are some bars and restaurants. I have stayed in the single room as well as a twin bed cabin. Both rooms were super clean and just what I needed. A bed, a fan, a towel and a small...

I stayed for a night with a friend after a long bus ride from Maputo and couldn't have been happier. The place was clean and comfortable, the woman who owns the place could not have kinder or more accommodating. A must stay for a relaxing night!

Stayed here for a couple of months during spring 2011 for nurse training during my studies. I enjoyed every single day! A safe place to stay with very helpfull and service minded staff. We gained a lot of new friends staying here, enjoyed the braais (BBQ) and I recommend it warmly!
