About Tom's Backpackers

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

Staying out here definitely gives you a sense of peace and a feeling of being removed from the cities, yet at the same time, it is incredibly well connected with Fourways which is just 27 km away, Hartebeespoortdam which is 24 km away, and Pretoria which is 19 km away.

Come meet some new faces whilst sharing a dorm, or if you prefer more space, then why not opt for a double bed. Our goal is to create a cool, fun, and friendly self-catering environment that caters for all your needs. We offer competitive rates as we strive to offer a balance between value and quality.
