Great location right off of Florida Road in the heart of The Berea. You’re within walking distance of the best shopping, restaurants and nightlife that Durban has to offer. Tekweni has a great travel desk with tons of activities for Durban and greater KwaZulu Natal. Staff are extremely friendly, and this is a very social place!
That said, I think the décor has passed its prime. When I was there, they appeared to be in the throws of a cockroach infestation, which bothered some travelers. Also, there is a house cat that sleeps in one of the dorms which presented allergy problems for me (they were very quick to change my room, however).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tekweni is located in the centre of Durban's hippest entertainment area : pubs, clubs, restaurants and markets are on the doorstep. It is comprised of 3 neighbouring houses, the oldest and main house built in 1896. The hostel 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 and town. 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. ... more less
