Could be a great hostel, but my dorm room REEKED! I had a sweater that i left in the room for less than 24 hours that picked up an AWFUL odor. It was so bad I didn't even want to take it with me. Other than that the hostel is fun and the staff is friendly and helpful, but I decided not to return there because of the awful smell.
- 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
