We felt Gibela was excellent.
Service: The hosts were helpful and offered suggestions for tours, etc.
Location: Near a nice restaurant strip, grocery stores, malls. In possibly the safest part of Durban.
Accomodations: Room was nothing fancy, but certainly adequate. Lots of common areas. Washrooms were clean.
Overall we had a really good stay at Gibela.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- TOP CHOICE - Lonely Planet 2012 "If this hostel (a tastefully converted 1950's Tuscan home) were a B&B, it would be described as 'boutique'. 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
