Cozy clean rooms. Plenty of facilities in the areas. Very kind and helpful owners who loved to help us with practical advice to start our trip. I would recommend everyone to stay at this place and have a beer and braai (BBQ) there.

This was a great stay just before we left south Africa to Paris. The owners are very nice and good advisors. There is a good atmosphere there and the private rooms are really nice. We recommend it for sure!

Certainly one of the nicest backpackers I've stayed in, and I've been in a few around the world. The owner Isel, and her daughter Monique, really make you feel at home. I felt like part of the family, and I only stayed a couple of nights. Nothing is too much for them, anything you need, they are more than happy...

1322 was officially our home away from home. We spent approximately two months at the backpackers and we found it to be safe, excellently located (e.g., walking distance to car rental companies, shopping and the Gautrain which you can catch to/from the airport), had reliable internet, included a complimentary breakfast and had friendly staff. The owners are also amazing and...
