Property Information:

Take note, students and muso’s, Neil is part of the local music scene and his pozzie* is close to the Howard College Campus, UKZN Centre for Jazz and the School of Medicine.

The spectacular sun downer roof top sometimes attracts the most talented human song birds to enthrall visitors at this laid back and peaceful homely spot.

So spend your day at the pool, er, sorry, school, do sun downers on the rooftop terrace with its fab view, and jam the blues away, or just sit back and enjoy the sweet sounds. Oh, sorry, or studying backstage. (Ha ha. As if...)

This intimate dorm-free venue has all the usual backpacker facilities plus pots of
wise advice on local markets, concerts and parties.

    At first glance it seemed a bit run down and the hostel was not labeled as such. Once there, however, it was very cozy and Neil was very helpful, friendly and gave us lots of tips for Durban!

Things to Note

This is not a big enterprise but quite personal, yet private. The owner who also manages most aspects of the place is approachable and flexible. Anything is possible and any request can be accommodated. Feel free to ask and inquire. We have an adorable bitch dog Poppet, who keeps us safe and secure. She is not aggressive, but announces any arrival with minimal upheaval. Should you have any children in your party it is a requirement that they are able to swim as our pool is not fenced.
