“After a lunch with my Aunt and some family i knew and some i didn’t, i headed to Durban and checked in at the Happy Hippo, with plans to hot-foot it back to the Berg the next day. Not so. I ended up staying two nights and doing a little bit of the tourist experience Durban has to offer.The Happy Hippo is how all hostels in a city should be, housed in a warehouse, with epic decor, spacious and comfortable, exposed beamed ceilings and industrial light fittings, well equipped kitchens and friendly staff to settle you in and sort your days.”
“On my last visit to Durban, I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a day (and night) with Michelle and Mike from the Happy Hippo at their colourful haven on Mahatma Gandhi Road. What an exciting couple to chat to, with their sparkling ideas and plans for the future of their Backpackers and Durban.
Happy Hippo is just a short walk to Durban’s world famous Beachfront area.”
