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!

If you just need a night to crash. Go for it. Other than that, there isn't anything to brag about here. There were almost no people here. No lockers in my room. The beach was filthy outside of the hostel. Decent bed.

Excellent north Durban location for the beach just across the road and nearby shops but 10 km from the central bus station and 200R taxi journey. Minibus is 14R if it can be arranged. Should not be confused with similarly named hostel in city centre.
