Ballito Backpackers
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

For price was more than suitable. Excellent location and very safe. Would recommend Ballito Backpackers for students or young travellers looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful. Only issue being we could not get wifi code from staff and taxis ordered were unreliable.

I needed to spend the night near the Durban airport on the way back from Sodwana Bay and this hostel was just the ticket! Right across the street from the beach with a grocery store around the corner; nice kitchen and tv room; friendly, helpful staff and clean comfy rooms. The taxi was $300R to the airport, which was a little costly, but it was a nice change from the big city of Durban..
