Services stressed by others
can be taken for granted at WOM !
If booking a trip(3 Days
or more) on the net - then get a free dorm.
Charged Airport pickup - We have always been willing
to pick you up at the airport at any time for a very reasonable fee - this
included Singapore at 5h40 or the late flights that land at 23h00. We have
very recently changed our modus operandi - this is thanks to backpackers that
have booked and then don't turn up. So if you want to go to a safe and friendly
City please expect to pay for it. We charge R300 for 1 person or R150pp for
2, R100pp for 3 or more.
Note we do a meet and greet - we have to park, wait
up to 3 hours sometimes so it is only fair to charge this token under market
related amount for a transfer. Market rate R450 one way
A card phone at the front door - situated there so
anyone lounging about can answer and call you.
Individual safes - we were the 1st hostel in SA to
install this. We use small gunsafes and only you will have the key. This gives
you the freedom to, at any time, be able to access your documents. Duplicates
are only accessable to the owner.
a TV room
a Kitchen with a huge fridge that will always have
space; also 4 plates to cook on.
3 hot showers that rarely run out of hot water -
only when someone has a continuous shower for like 40 minutes!
Laundry facilities and even a drier for the rainy
Sufficient space to sit outside. All are welcome
in Pat's Corner.
Fax and Phone facilities.
We have the most comprehensive and informative Travel
Centre in the region !
Our staff are well travelled and knowledgable - the
reason WOM does so well is that the staff enjoy what they do.
SAFETY- We ARE the most
safe and secure hostel in the whole of South Africa - we have an absolutely
brilliant track record. The reason for this is attitude - we believe that
you make your own luck. Your money you can lock up safely in your room or
in individual safes. We have palisade fencing, razor wire on top and in the
middle, electric wire on the inside and a Mapogo sign on the gate. And a huge
cool dog.... Kingsa. We would rather have security than have anyone on the
premises come to harm. To project how secure we are - we slept with
an open front door till 8 years ago and had no fencing. But we are one of
the most progressive hostels and we always plan for the future!
MISSING IN THE LAST 15 YEARS!
Money out our safe - NONE!
Money out your safes - NONE!
Money out your rooms - Unfortunately twice - 1. 1995
Dec - R200 from under a pillow in a dorm; 2. R300 out a jacket left in the
kitchen in 2001.
Clothes - Jacket in 1995, 2 sleeping bags at night
off washing line 1997, old runners left outside the house in 2000, just before
the fencing. 1 pair of shoes 2009....
TV & Video - I used to laugh at the other hostels,
especially Cape Town where this is a huge scam. Then we got nailed in 2001.
Another reason why we don't take South African travellers....
Now this just makes an excellent track record - i'll
be amazed if anyone in Pretoria can better this!
