The best atmosphere, good to make friends and a lot of restaurants around...I also had a good time at the swimming pool...I liked everything, except the Wi Fi connection which was really poor. I would go back.
Definately not the best place we stayed during our holidays. The bed was old and nasty, there was no light in the room, there was only one electricity outlet and loud music kept you awake. Very nice place for groups if you want to party a lot during your holidays. Definitely not suitable for guests that do have other plans than just partying.
A bit grimy and dirty (saw cockroaches on the stairs and under the bed in the big dorm, but only on my first night). However, tekweni has a great vibe overall and the staff was helpful. Great location. Internet was a little spotty but at least it was free!
I just had one night, security was so good my room key took three attempts each time to get in. Nice place, good atmosphere. Chilled.
Non-cliquey, lively hostel. A decent choice if you want a hostel near to the beach and close to a good set of bars and restaurants. The hostel itself however is a good set-up and while not outstanding it does have a good vibe and friendly feel. The place is in morningside so Durban city centre is a good hour away by walking, although easy to pick up a mini bus on Florida road. I would definately recommend this hostel, it feels and talks like a hostel and that for me is good enough reason for it!
This place has a great atmosphere and is an excellent place to meet new people. Its not the most comfortable sleep you will ever have, but its a party hostel!
My mattress didnt fit on my bed leading to a very uncomfortable sleep! Also I booked a 4 person girl dorm and ended up in a 6 person mixed, with the worst snorer I had ever heard. I ended up on the couch :p the people I met there were great though and it is very social at night. I would stay again for sure!
