    Great hostel with amazing activities, tours and pub crawls to see the local, non-touristy bars and clubs of Durban.

    Stayed after having a great time at Curiocity Jo'burg. Easy to find, about a 15min walk to the beach. Supermarket close by if you choose to utilise the kitchen. The in Hostel food/culture tour is definately worth doing if you there on the right day. Now if people would just stop taking food from the fridge thatbisn't theirs #HostelLife....

    I really loved my stay at Curiosity. I stayed there 3 nights and the atmosphere is so good! Everyone is sociable and the staff will help you with anything you need. The bar is also fun to drink a beer with the people you met in the hostel. The area is not safe, especially as a woman you shouldn’t go out alone but take an uber or go out with some other people. The beaches are pretty nice ! The staff also provides a lot of activities for which can sign up. Durban itself wasn’t really interisting.

    The location was pretty good and I was able to walk all over Durban from here. While I was here, it was a bit rainy so the common area wasn't used as much, meaning it felt less like a community. Still as my stay continued I met some really cool people and became good friends, so overall I quite enjoyed it. Also the included breakfast and kitchen with free pasta are huge pluses!

    Hostel is in the middle of the city and difficult to locate, had to get a staff to actual come down to the street to give me directions. Very quick intro to the hostel, did not even show me the kitchen... Atmosphere was dead, no real amenities within the hostel, just a little bar area. Going for a walk outside, I would classify as risky (and it takes a lot for me to say that) Overall, unless you need to be in the city for some reason, I would be passing on this place.

    The hostel is located within the CBD which is an unsafe part of the city. During the night, someone who was not a guest of the hostel, come into my dorm room and sleep on the bunk above me. My room was loud as it was above a busy road. Furthermore, someone was living in my dorm, which should not be allowed in a hostel. Overall, despite the hostel haivng great potential, I was not satisfied with my stay.
