We only stayed three night which was enough to explore what was around the area, it rained most the time so it was not enjoyable, Durban has a high drug problem and every ten steps some would ask for money loads of homeless but if you plan it right it’s can be a good stop off from joburg to cape town.

I arrived in the evening and was asked to join 30 Seconds Board game, that was so welcoming. I was staying in one of the mixed dorms, it was so much fun meeting new people. The bar is the fun part of Curiocity. I made so many new friends in my 3 nights stay, I am definitely going back.

I spent 6 nights at Curiocity Durban - I originally booked 3 nights and added another 3 nights because I was unable to join a tour that had wait-listed me and joined another tour that started 3 days later from Durban. I was very pleased with the attentiveness, helpfulness, friendliness, and dedication to providing excellent service from the entire staff of this hostel. The 8 bed dorm rooms are extremely large and have access to a balcony. Large lockers under the bottom bunk easily accomodated my 2 bags. The hostel is located in a decent neighborhood and is 3 blocks from a supermarket and 5 blocks from Duban's South Beach section of the waterfront. Highly recommended!

Even though it was only for one night, I arrived feeling exhausted, but left feeling recharged and ready for the next day's mission. The warm environment and panoramic views make Curiocity an awesome base camp!
