About
Description
Aweh :) We are a small cozy backpackers just starting up in beautiful Durban North. We are situated in a quiet part of Durban just 10 minutes away from the City of Durban. Not only is there a lot of nature and More culture around to explore, but also a Beach Buggy available to drive you to town, to the beach, waterfalls or simply to few bars and discos to enjoy the nightlife. Our goal is to run this place like our home. With lots of love and always with an open mind. Come, laugh and relax with us! Less
