This place is a family run business and for a few days we did feel part of the family living in their home. Pat Keith and Gary were extremely friendly and helpful and ensured we had a great and calm stay. They had a fantastic Braai and pool area which would be great if the weather is good (we weren't so lucky). They also offered us lifts when the weather was bad and upgraded us to a cabin when the dorm became quite full which was really nice of them.

A very clean and pleasant place to stay. You'll need a car, as there aren't any amenities in the neighborhood. The home owners were kind and extremely helpful.

The owner is fantastic. A nice place to stay for a good nights sleep. In Durban north, not downtown. The property is beautiful and there is a pool. There are airport transfers available.

charming secured residential neighborhood. was excited to finally see the inside of a home in S.A. It was a charming home. Truly home away from home. pat and Keith were so kind and helpful from the moment I arrived. They are both a wealth of information and ever so friendly. The beds, rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Nice pool outdoors. The neighborhood is lovely.

Awesome place! I booked a bed in the 4-bunk room, but there were two guys staying there and the family room was unbooked for the night, so the owners upgraded me for free :) Super friendly people, willing to help give advice around the area. Definitely would recommend this place!
