    One of the best backpacking experiences I have had. Well situated and homely environment with friendly helpful owners. I felt very welcomed and well looked after. Had no issues with security and cleanliness. All the facilities are great, has a nice big pool that is properly maintained and a large entertainment area with couches and a braai, as well as a sound system. They also provide free WIFI. I highly recommend Hadeda House Backpackers to anybody looking for accommodation in Durban

    Great spot - Dave couldn't be more welcoming and fixed us up with activities and how to get around Durban. The outdoor area is a great spot to relax with a drink and throw something on the BBQ. Just what we were after, a very relaxed and welcoming way to enjoy Durban, would definitely stay again.

    A family run place in leafy Durban North, this is a nice peaceful place to stay. The family are friendly and helpful, but the location, if you haven't got your own transport could be an issue. There's a lot of huffing and puffing up and down the many hills to get to the shops or the beach! The place is a little small for the number of potential guests and it's not easy to find some common space to sit where there are no smokers. The bed was OK; a little creaky, though.

    Thank you so much for an excellent stay at Hadeda House! It was a brilliant base for exploring Durban by car. Lovely staff, and comfortable beds. Just a shame there were not many others staying at the same time as us. Thank you especially for your recommendations for places to eat and things to see and do - everything we tried was excellent!

    Really enjoyed our stay here, staff were extremely helpful. They took us to the local supermarket to buy some food for our stay as we arrived late and showed us around the area, upgraded our room as the hostel was not busy, and gave us a lift to the coach station when we were heading to our next stop. Security was good and the location was even better, never been too far from supermarkets/bars/restaurants. The atmosphere was relatively quiet during our stay which wasn’t a bad thing.

    Very Good

    It is in a nice neighbourhood and it feels very secure and safe. The hosts are friendly and helpful. We stayed in a private twin room. However, we felt like it does not have much privacy as it's technically one big room and they have split it into two, therefore you can hear everything from the next room. The rooms needs attention and love. There were quite a few things broken (cracked tiles, doors broken so you have to lift, when you use the taps they make a horrible loud noise). No toaster.

    Stayed at this place in January to 2017 luckily just 1 Night. We booked a private room and recognized our room ist just separated to another room by a big kind of wardrobe. How ridiculous is this? We could here everything and there lift some weird people for longterm rent. Moreover watercurtain in the bathroom was absolutely full of mould. Never saw anything like this. Pool area was honestly nice even though the pool was dirty. Breakfast also not satisfying.

    Severely overpriced for what you get. Pretty sure this was just some units in the back of somebody's yard which is utilised to get some extra cash.
