From the backdoor you can enter the beach directly. Surf equipment is rented out cheepply, the dinner was a blast. The open structure opens various opportunities to connect with other guests. One of the best hostels I have been to in SA!

I went to the island vibe hostel for 3 days with friends, while doing the garden route. Island vibe was definitely the best hostel I've ever been to. The communal rooms, the outside area, the view, the bar... Simply everything.

Located directly on the beach. Staff not overly welcoming. If you're not a surfer, you'll find Jeffrey's Bay very unexciting anyways. The dorm rooms were a bit shabby, the smell in there a bit musty. The shared kitchens were not very well equipped. No possibilities to lock doors or windows. What's nice are the barbecue areas that you can use...

Even thought views you get here are amazing and it is a very fun place/atmosphere, there is a serious lack of room cleanliness. We got into our room: the bedding was so old, stained, and smelled of cigarette smoke from the previous guest - the flat sheet even had a cigarette burn in it and the pillow cover was so...

I travelled solo and wanted primarily to surf but also to socialise and have fun. There is a huge party in the hostel every night so it's perfect for fun and meeting people but it's noisy (particularly in the dorms) so not ideal if you're looking for a quiet escape. The views are amazing, the staff are lovely, it's close...

Island Vibe, the place to go surfing, drinking or just relaxing. The vibe is chill and the food they offer is really good. Play some beerpong or enjoy the sunset on their terrace. A nice place to stay for people who wants to meet new friends.

We heard so many good things about this place, so we were stoked when we showed up late (around 9pm) and they still had a cabin available for the night. It was a 2 person cabin on the beach, and a picnic table outside. It didn't have a bathroom, so we used the communal bathroom near the main office. We...
