About Nomads Backpackers

Our lively lodge is located in the heart of Durban and it offers a range of accommodation. Relax outside by the pool, on our outdoor wood and cane tables under the banana trees. We are very fortunate to have three adjoining houses which form part of Nomads Backpackers.

We are just a short walk from one of Durban's most upmarket shopping centres with banks, travel agents, supermarkets, cinemas and more. Just around the corner, you will find rows of restaurants and pubs. We are on the main bus routes which will take you anywhere you want to be in Durban, and we are just 10 minutes from Durban's main beaches, the Golden Mile, bazaars and markets.

                                  Friendly staff and guests. Too dark inside and a bit messy to my taste.

                                  Stay was nice. Enjoyed the assistance of your staff. Pass my regards to staff.

                                  Nomads is by far, one of the best places I have ever stayed. I had never stayed at a backpackers and the experience was fantastic. The staff is really friendly, knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is really great. There are fun things to do but it is also no problem if you just want to sit around and have a chat or chill all day.
