Property Description

Perfect beach hostel to relax, unwind and forget about life's daily stresses!

We are located just 50 metres from the beach at Ansteys Beach – a leafy beach suburb 15 kilometres south of Durban. A popular and long standing family establishment (est. 1999), we offer comfortable accommodation options all set in a lovely tropical garden with a swimming pool, small bar and Heidi’s Cafe on the premises above the swimming pool.

- Fully equipped thoughtfully decorated self-catering apartments (2, 4 or 6 sleepers) that are serviced daily except Sundays and Public Holidays. Free unlimited super fast fibre wifi.
- Private airconditioned rooms (backpackers). Free wifi
- Budget communal backpacker cabins (dorms, doubles, twins). Free wifi
Favoured with everyone from backpackers, holidaymakers, beach lovers, surfers, families, sports and tour groups, contract workers etc.

We pride ourselves on a pleasant and homely environment with comfort, cleanliness and a great ‘beachy, home away from home’ atmosphere that has many happy guests returning time and time again.

It is the ideal home base as we are close to many shops, shopping centres and restaurants, as well as all the major tourist attractions in KZN such as uShaka Marine World, Suncoast Casino, the ICC, Sports Stadiums etc. Hluhluwe Game Reserve is about 3 hour drive away, so perfect for day trips.

There is a small fully licensed bar and gift/surf shop for our guests – perfect for those last minute gifts before heading home!

Come and experience our beautiful unspoilt & lifeguard protected beaches, warm seawater all year round, good swimming and surfing beaches, kiddies paddling and tidal pools and amazing rock pools to explore at low tide. Fun for everyone!

There is nothing better than taking an early morning stroll to the beach, armed with a steaming cup of coffee or tea to watch the ocean come alive with the most spectacular sunrises. More often than not the dolphins will delight you with their playful antics and the whales are a regular spectacular sight at Anstey’s Beach.

Come back after a hectic day at work or in the city and relax by the poolside in our tropical garden or go for a late afternoon swim in the sea or walk on the beach, particularly at low tide when the rock pools are exposed.

Anstey’s is unique in that we encourage and enjoy a great cosmopolitan atmosphere – international travelling backpackers, South African holidaymakers, business clients, contract workers – all get along and it makes for a good, happy mix! Come on over and join us – we look forward to having you stay with us! – Tash, Rudy and the Anstey’s crew

Great place, with an amazing cafe (Heidis). I could hear the sound of the waves in my room at night, fantastic. Just a little far from the city of Durban, but accessible with Uber. If you don’t need the city, it’s a great match!
