This is always the place to go to when in Durban for a quick visit. We love the clean rooms, easy location, and nice staff. It is simple yet effective. You can get by here with a car (good parking inside) or without (close to downtown with a walk) as Florida St. and other neighborhoods are close.

One of Durban's best hostels, it has sparkling surfaces and rooms neat enough to pass an army major's inspection. It even provides a continental breakfast- to be enjoyed in an attractive indoor-outdoor dining area." Gibela is conveniently located in the safe, residential area of Morningside and within walking distance to the center of Durban’s entertainment life, Florida Road, where there are restaurants, cocktail bars, clubs and coffee shops galore. ... more less
