It's not luxurious. Will get the value of what you paid, don't expect more

The place does not offer wifi as they claim and the person that runs the place is beyond rude. The day we arrived we struggled to locate the backpacker because it is in an area hard to reach but when we called the owner of the place to assist us he refused so we drove around Durban for 4 hours trying to find the place. when we arrived and complained about not being assisted with locating the place the owner tried to get into a fight with us. the owner also hangs his underwear outside the building which is not a good site to see. There is no hot water offered and thus we were forced to take cold showers. The owner walks around in his towel and is beyond the word rude. It was honestly a terrible experience and would not recommend the place to anyone.

Doesn't even deserve a star. Our boss booked a colleague and I into this place based on the pictures online... we were greeted by a very angry man wearing boxers who went ballistic when we decided to take pictures to send to our boss. Catfish
