Monkey Bay Backpackers / Hostel, based in the picturesque, seaside town of Ballito on Durban's beautiful northern Dolphin Coast, is one of South Africa's best hostels, stemming, largely from the creative & imaginative forces behind it.
The closest budget accommodation to King Shaka Airport, Monkey Bay Backpackers' attractive hillside setting lends itself to the spirit of adventure, African style, with a series of cleverly designed and linked terraces, on which stand the main house, dorm rooms, tree house, tent pitches, the bar and chill-out areas.
Warm, bold, African colours and patterns adorn the interior and exterior of many of the building's walls and soft furnishings, reminding you of where you are, every step of the way.
Visitors are welcomed with open arms and, from the start, made to feel right at home.
The beach is as mere 3 minute walk, as is the swimming pool and a handful of local shops and good cafe / restaurants.
When it comes to customer service, the Monkey Bay team pride themselves on going above and beyond wherever possible, extending themselves to ensure that all the residents are comfortable and have access to all the information and facilities they require.
