If you are on a budget this is the best place to live at. Just on the beach front in Umhlanga (a lovely suburb in Durban) and very quite surrounding areas and safe. I enjoyed myself living here. The backpackers feels like home, they have a sausage dog and a lovely cat. There is a swimming pool too. There are good facilities for you to make your own food. The breakfast is cereals with milk. and you would have to pay R40.00 for cooked breakfast such as eggs and sausages.

The place was ok. Nothing more but what was really wrong were the dirty towels and sheets (they were washed but full of stains). Plus, they don't accept credit cards...in Sout Africa, it's quite rare.

Went there with a friend, had a dorm room for ourselves which was nice. Visited in low season so I don't know how it is in high season, but as a traveler alone it could be lonely. Overall a great place to stay the night!
