A blend of cleanliness and affordability, the Hippo Hide caters for the discerning independent traveller. Our exceptionally friendly and efficient staff can help you plan your trip, organise tours and safaris, provide you with broadband internet and generally make your stay in Durban an unforgetable experience.

The Hippocratic Oath

We at HIPPO HIDE promise to bring you a friendly,helpful,comfortable, clean, cultural & sociable backpacking experience. Come and enjoy a Sundowner at the WATERING HOLE whilst dipping your feet in our crystal clear ROCK POOL.
