it is very close to the beach, but not close to supertubes (if you are expecting for the perfect waves). the bedroom was good, perfect view to the sea. the bar area was nice but a bit pricey. you can go to loads of restaurants and pay a dinner at a good price. but the atmosphere was nice, good place...

Hi Rebecca Thank you for choosing Island Vibe Jeffreys Bay and for your valued feedback, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed the view, your room and the atmosphere.

We got such a poor welcome for such a lovely hostel. The lady that showed us around was so rude and walked us around as if she was going through prison rules...there was no need for the bad attitude. The guy in the bar was a little obnoxious. Although these were the only letdown's as the rest of the staff...

Dear Amy Thank you for choosing Island Vibe Jeffreys Bay and for your valued feedback, I am sorry you welcoming was not what it should have been and that our check inn tour sounded like prison rules it is by no means meant to intimidate your or restrict your movements rather to inform you so you're able to make decisions...

Prime beach location. The bar/ lounge/ restaurant area had a nice, fun atmosphere. Its in the center of the property and rooms, creating a cosy relation area. The receptionist/ management gave us a good tour at arrival which was welcoming. Our room was very basic but all we needed. Our little deck was private with a beautiful view of the...

A friend and I stopped here for 2 nights and stayed in a 4 bed dorm and were really impressed with the location and during the day it had great vibe, and the reception staff were delightful. At night it was a completely different story, if you plan to sleep between 12 and 430, don't count on it! There are...

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!!
