    Definitely would recommend staying here if you are going to Durban! The staff was kind enough to upgrade us to a premium room, which was just like staying in a hotel room (included bottle of wine, coffee, private bathroom, comfortable big bed). Staff was extremely helpful and kind - helped us book shark cage diving and arranged a driver for us. Clean facilities, great location, strong WiFi, good common areas to hang out, and strong security. Would stay here again!

    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....

    The staff were incredibly kind and caring and knew me by name and always said hi and notified me of any activities. When the arranged pickup didn't show up to bring me to the airport, Megan quickly arranged for a hostel staff person to bring me to the airport for the same cost. I truly felt sad leaving. The facilities were clean and spacious and the breakfast was included and good. My only grief is that the rooms were quite loud and breakfast ended quite early so sleeping in wasn't an option.

    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 staffs were really helpful. I had forgotten my shampoo and soap in the bathroom and they kept it for me. They also helped me hiring a shuttle to coffee bay and booking my hostel there. I walked in the neighborhood, but it looks a bit dangerous. I met some people who make my stay more pleasant, but the hostel doesn't seem to offer a good atmosphere to make friends.
