Property Description

Tekweni is located in the center of Durban's hippest entertainment area: pubs, clubs, restaurants and markets are on the doorstep. We recently introduced FREE WIRELESS which is a huge winner with the guests. Tekweni is comprised of 3 neighboring houses the oldest and main house built in 1896. The backpacker's was established in 1992 making it one of the first five hostels in the country and the longest established in Durban. We are close to everything, only two km to the beach, town and the Moses Mabhida, Kings Park and Kingsmead stadium's.

The various types of accommodation ramble across the 3 properties. You have the choice of staying right in the middle of the action or in one of our quieter more remote rooms away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated all with ceiling fans. We also offer accommodation in our fully furnished flats on a longer term weekly basis on request.

Our fully equipped stainless steel kitchen is complete with all you need to whip up a great chow. Our numerous ablutions have been renovated to cater for the volumes and the needs of the backpacker. We have unlimited safe parking on the premises. We also have 24 hour security as well as security cameras. We have excellent fast internet access with our very popular FREE WIRELESS proving a huge winner. Our satellite provides all the current sports in our poolside sports bar as well as all the current movies and tv stuff in our lounge. The indoor outdoor feel is complete with numerous seating areas giving you the choice of the ambiance you desire at the time.

We built our reputation through our festive atmosphere and fun loving approach. You can PARTY ON at our poolside sports bar, catch some rays, groove to the tunes or 'kick some butt' around our pool table. Try and time your trip to coincide with our 'braai's' every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. We provide the salad and rolls and light the fire. A great way to meet other backpackers, you bring your own meat (or whatever) and cook and socialize together with our many guests from all over the world.

Our Travel Info Center is also based next to the pool (You guessed it; everything is next to the pool). The centralized set-up is what encourages our incredibly social atmosphere. Everything flows together in an area which is often described as the 'Bermuda Triangle' of Southern African Backpackers. Through our travel center you can book pretty much anything in the budget market in Southern Africa. This includes a variety of tours throughout KZN, all major overland tours, other tours throughout Southern Africa, Baz Bus, Greyhound, Intercape, the cheapest car hire, diving, sky diving, surfing, other adventure activities and much more. Drop us an e-mail and we can have it all sorted before you arrive or just come see us when you get here.

Please note that reception closes at 11pm, please arrive before failure to do so will result in disappointment.

'Frenzied pheromones' it is Durban's 'inn place'.

    A brilliant party hostel with a great atmosphere! Tip: Dormitory room no.1 is directly opposite the lounge and the corridor leading in and out of the hostel. In the morning, after 7 am, the clomp clomp of constant footsteps can be heard from outside the door. It gets quieter after about 9, but they have much quieter rooms at the back of the hostel. Cafes, pubs and a huge supermarket just 5 mins walk away.

    Positives: 1) Location Situated just around the corner from a lively road with good restaurants and pubs - so if you do not want to spend the evening at the establishment, it is very easy to go out; walking outside - to and up&down Florida Road (the lively road mentioned earlier) felt very safe. 2) Atmosphere/Environment Friendly: Allows you to meet and socialize with fellow guests - plenty off outdoor sitting area. The host are very upbeat and accommodating. There is a bar - though not well pr
