I just spent one day and one night in Jeffrey's Bay but my stay was amazing. The staff was luckily very friendly. I booked my room for the wrong month haha but they found that funny too and quickly arranged a new room for me. :-) Thank you again! I got the "Cabine 2" and I can only recommend this...

We met several nice people and staff and enjoyed the overall vibe! J-bay is a great place and I only wish we had more time. It felt very safe and the access to the beach couldn't be better. We hope to come back in the future

We were welcomed super friendly at the reception. Even though we were very early they told us to come in and explained everything very well from where we find what in the city to all the different activity opportunities we have. they even showed us the whole backpacker. The hostel has a great bar and chill area where lots of...

First off, it's a minimalist hostel, and that part is definitely fine and lives up to it's name. However, the service and staff gave us bad vibes, not island vibes.... I emailed Island Vibe a few days ahead to get some more info about surfboard rentals and even got a confirmation from booking.com that my request went though, yet I...

If you want to party this is the spot with Resteraunt and bar on site. However if you book into the cottages on the outskirts of the hostel away from the bar you feel like you have the place all to yourself. There are also daily excursions to local sights and surfing and SUP school at the backpackers . Friendly...

We were welcomed by a grumpy receptionist, who obviously dislikes talking to people. Also the 1st impression of the room was rather poor; clean but kind of dysfunctional (windows, door, water tab, no key for safe...) and smelly. However, the location itself is great - close to the beach (which is beautiful in this area!), room with balcony & beach...

Dear Traveller Thank you for choosing Island Vibe Jbay and for your valued review, it will be strange for any person to choose to be a receptionist while they dislike talking to people because that job is about talking and interaction with our guests.
