Very clean, much cleaner than anticipated. The employees are very useful and friendly but allow you to get on with your own thing. Very nice garden with swimming pool. The Backpackers had a variety of people from different countries as guests during our stay, which allowed a extremely friendly and informative atmosphere.

  Customer Review 

It&s nice place to stay. There weren`t many individuals when we stayed at the hostel. So there was not much going on. It&s a quite place (besides the TV which is often on).

  Eva M... 

Quiet location, has some stores and ammenities nearby. Close to taxi cab cabs to town.

  Michael B... 

The service given but above all else the cleanliness. I have extended my stay 2 days and now another 2 days.

  Monica H... 

Really cute single/double cabins - would recommend going for one of these rather than a dorm room.

  Charlotte Van E... 

It was a very nice place and they provide very good services and helped us with a lot of things so that was great!

  Lina S... 

Very helpful and warm and friendly staff. A cosy and nice location to stay at that also cares about the enviroment (they recycle etc. ). I would highly recommend staying at this location within your stay in Durban.

  Marie Le N... 

A lovely garden with comfy & clean accomodation. Near to shops so you can source and cook your own food. The property owner is a fantastic lady with exceptional local knowledge.

I LOVED the employees at Hippo Hide. They gave so several superb suggestions for points to do inside the region and were awesome to just talk to whilst having some down time.
