My friend stayed there in December and recomended the place. It's a pretty cool hostel, and the view of my room was amazing. I only spent one night, but I really enjoy the service, and all the activities they have.

We booked the double bedroom with ensuite bathroom, but the room didn't look anything like the pictures you see on the internet. The walls need some serious painting urgently, because there are water stains all over. The room also smelled like the previous guests had been smoking something in there. The door to the room is a sliding glass door,...

This is probably one of my favourite backpackers in SA. Fantastic location (with the BEST sea-views!), nice rooms and clean amenities, great bar and chill area, and just all 'round cool. If you're looking to surf or to just chill out in J-Bay, Island Vibe has you covered.

We stayed the weekend and the facilities are very clean. The location is perfect and close to the main shopping area and beautiful view. The one negative is the bartenders keep asking me to buy them drinks, one guy was very persistent. Other than that Definitely worth staying!!

We had a twin ensuite with ocean view which was wonderful. Mattresses are quite hard and humidity is high especially in the bathroom. Friendly staff and many activities. Great spot if you are into surfing.

Stayed here with a tour group for 2 nights on the Garden Route. We were in a 12-bed dorm and it was disappointing from the moment we were shown to our room. It was dark (not helped by the fact that one of the 2 lights in the room was broken) and stuffy. There was only 1 charge point in...

The Island Vibe in Jeffrey's Bay is awesome. It is a big hostel with a very big bar area. It is perfect for those who want to meet a lot of people and have some drinks at the bar. All in all the backpacker is perfect for a few days of surfing.
