Description

The Happy Hippo Backpackers flies South Africa’s flag high with its contemporary ethnic theme. Experience their ‘wow’ factor - from unique accommodation awash in vibrant colours to cool cultural trimmings and industrial flavours.

uShaka Marine World is right next door with plenty of restaurants, watering holes and cool marine-themed rides. The beach is also nearby, so stroll down and top up your tan or swim, surf, kayak and sail!

If you want a taste of the real Durban, head to the famous Indian Market, try a bunny chow or catch a rickshaw ride along the beachfront. You can even catch a cable car ride to the top of the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Downtime can be spent at home with the Hippo, browsing the shelves of their curio shop with its lekker local wares or globetrotting their rooftop bar, The Globe.

Hostelz.com Guest Reviews
4   Pretty cool place Happy Hippo was pretty cool. We were approached by a local upon our arrival to Durban saying the area our hostel was at was not safe and the dodgy part of town ... It wasn't at all! The staff was friendly and the actual hostel was pretty spacious and cool! It was clean and close to a shopping center/water park/restaurants! I would definitely recommend this place!  , age 27, USA ()
1   A Dive The owner is the most rude woman on the face of the earth, I would not recommend any of the hippo hostels to anybody, stay well clear.  , Germany ()
