What a great holiday

Monkey Bay Backpackers in Ballito is far the best holiday I have had for a very long time. I have been to many backpackers and Monkey Bay Backpackers to me is the best not only because of the fantastic staff but also the friends I have made. I definitely recommend Monkey Bay in Ballito as my highlight to my holiday. I will be back.

THE Best holiday ever

I’ve just returned home after spending 3 weeks in South Africa & 13 nights of that was in the Monkey Bay Backpackers in Ballito. The people there are amazing the manager there is Andrew he will go out his way to help you and the accommodation is really good, plenty showers and the whole property is kept really clean. We had a braai (BBQ) most nights and its less than 5 mins walk to the beach and a 15 min walk to Thomson bay

The Monkey Bay Backpackers Experience

Based in the picturesque, seaside town of Ballito near Durban, on the beautiful North / Dolphin Coast, is one of South Africa’s best backpackers accommodation, stemming largely from the creative and imaginative forces behind it.

The closest budget lodge to King Shaka Airport, Monkey Bay’s attractive hillside setting lends itself to the spirit of adventure, African style, with a series of cleverly designed and linked terraces, on which stand the main house, dorm rooms, tree house, camping sites, the bar and chill-out areas.

Warm, bold, African colours and patterns adorn the interior and exterior of many of the building’s walls and soft furnishings, reminding you of where you are, every step of the way.

Visitors are welcomed with open arms and made to feel right at home.

The backpacker’s hostel offers excellent facilities and local amenities with the beach a mere 3 minute walk away, as well as a handful of local shops and good cafes and restaurants.

Delivering excellent customer service, this Ballito backpacker’s team pride themselves on ensuring that all residents are comfortable and have access to all the information and facilities they require.

We look forward to being of service.
