Tekweni Goes Off!

Tekweni is located in a large colonial home (built in 1896) in the heart of the vibrant suburb of Morningside just off the infamous Florida Rd. We built our reputation on our festive atmosphere and fun loving approach.

Prop up our poolside bar, catch some rays, groove to the tunes or “kick some butt” around the pool table.

Tekweni is located in the center of Durban’s hippest entertainment area: pubs, clubs, restaurants and markets are on the doorstep. We recently introduced FREE WIRELESS which is a huge winner with the guests. We are comprised of 3 neighboring houses the oldest and main house built in 1896. The hostel was established in 1992 making it one of the first five hostels in the country and the longest established in Durban. We are close to everything, only two km to the beach and town as well as close to all the main stadiums; The Mighty Moses Mabhida, Kings Park Rugby, and Kingsmead Cricket.

The various types of accommodation ramble across the 3 properties. You have the choice of staying right in the middle of the action or in one of our quieter more remote rooms away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated all with ceiling fans. We also offer accommodation in our fully furnished flats on a monthly basis on request.

We built our reputation through our festive atmosphere and fun loving approach. You can PARTY ON at our poolside sports bar, catch some rays, groove to the tunes or ‘kick some butt’ around our pool table. Try and coincide your visit with our free ‘braai’s’ every Thursday and Sunday. We provide the salad and rolls and light the fire. A great way to meet other backpackers, you bring your own meat (or whatever) and cook and socialize together with our guests from all over the world.
