Nestled in the Schurveberg Mountains in the Valley of the Hennops River, this little gem is probably Gauteng's best kept secret.

Great for large groups/ birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette's.

Our rates are really low as we strive to bring you a balance between value and quality.

Tom's backpackers will never disappoint.

Fourways is but 27 kilometers ,Hartbeespoortdam 24 kilometers and Pretoria 19 kilometers.

The space

Come meet some new faces whilst sharing a bunk-room or if you prefer more space, then take a double bed or even hire out the whole place.

The goal was to create a cool, fun, friendly, self catering environment that caters for all your needs.

Equipped with a full kitchen, bar, large veranda and male & female bathrooms.

There is a sound system where you can plug in or listen to 1000s of songs on our Jukebox, as well as full DSTV and uncapped wifi.

Interaction with guests

Depending on if you have booked out the whole place or just a private room or bunk bed, there will most properly be a very interesting foreigner on his way to the next destination who has pulled off for a little break in the mountains for a few days.

Other things to note

Come visit a vast array of local attractions.

Experience a "REAL" destination rather than the packaged version often associated with mass tourism.

I didn't contact Tom to let hin know what time I was arriving. he mailed me unsucellfully so decided to leave the room door open and left the key in the door. Great idea! I found the place easy and got in my room. with some help of another guest.
