Positive Reviews

Walk to the beach

If you've come to the hostel to bask in Durban's warm climate, then you will be pleased to know you can walk down to the beach and enjoy the day on the golden brown sand. Guests loved the easy access to the beach, and the many cosy eateries on the way too.

Well-maintained rooms

Travellers were pleasantly surprised to find the rooms were well looked after by the hostel housekeeping staff. Even the eight and ten-bed dorms were well-appointed with a modern, trendy vibe, and they were well cleaned too.

Excellent on-site facilities

There are activities planned throughout the week in the courtyard, where guests can mingle, enjoy a drink, and get to know one another. Guests also enjoyed the bar/lounge area, and they thought the Nane Spa downstairs was phenomenal.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms are a challenge

If you don't have a private en suite room, then you will have to use the shared bathroom facilities. Guests found that visitors from other floors came down to use their bathroom, creating a bit of a queue. Other guests complained that the bathrooms were a bit of a mess, they were stuffy from all the steam and very slippery from the water.
