We are a small cozy backpackers just starting up in beautiful Durban North. Our goal is to run this place like our home. With lots of love and always with an open mind. Air-condition, BBQ facilities, common rooms and a kitchen are all available. Come, laugh and relax with us!

Not only is there a lot of nature and culture around to explore, but also a Beach Buggy available to drive you to town, to the beach, waterfalls or simply to few bars and discos to enjoy the nightlife. Durban is one of the biggest cities in South Africa, rich with Indian culture (weird right?!) and has many bars and lots of activities to offer.
A surfing paradise ... for beginners as well as for professionals! As in many places around the coastline in South Africa, the beaches are stunning and the waves simply great for surfing. You can choose between many surfing spots, and diving areas, to swim with sharks, dolphins or simply enjoy the beautiful underwater world through diving trips.

    I am really impressed with Aweh Backpackers, they have lovely facilities with comfortable bunk beds and amazing service. I was one of the only guests staying over the weekend and they made sure to place me in my own bunk bed room so I had the place to myself. The staff are friendly and kind, my expectations were exceeded.

    I loved staying at Aweh! So much so, I returned a second week in a row. Great folks run it and make you feel like family :) Pros: -Extremely affordable -Great staff -A/C, hot showers, pool -DOGS!! who are so friendly -Towels if you forget, no charge -and more! Cons: -Could be a little cleaner, but you can see the pros outweigh this con for me, by a lot. Thanks to the Aweh family for everything!!

    Left with mixed feelings, the staff was so nice but I was itchy with a pile of laundry to do. Luckily I've been ok since and by now the beds and rooms should be all clean and clear, too. Happens.

    The host were great and even droven me to the supermarket and invited me over for dinner which was nice, but it's more like a homestay than a backpackers. Most people staying there are locals or long terms. Not a good vibe for solo backpackers in my opinion as they often have their friends over all day long which can be intimidating. The place itself it's ok and has a home feeling into it. The top bunk could use some shelf to put phone, water bottle. No much activities/info provided.

    The pictures and description found on Hostelworld don't really represent the current condition of the hostel. Same with the outstanding rating results.. As an experienced globetrotter I'm wondering how this is possible. The place is today quite run down, not the cleanest place and more like the home of a family together with a couple of long-stay guests... You don't really feel comfortable to spend a lot of time there if you don't want to join this "community".
