If you're below the age of 25 then you may enjoy this place as there are lots of other young people. You'll also find drugs readily available as I and a friend where approached and offered cocaine and weed by one of the employees of this establishment. Once is enough for me. I wont return to this place as the...

We booked a small cabin with great views of the bay. The staff are very helpful and informative about the area. However the noise from the bar did keep us up until around 3am as we left the party just after 12. Moving rooms the second night we had a much better experience and a good nights sleep. The food...

Hi Fabian Thank you for choosing us and for your valued feedback. 3 nights is a good time to spend in Jbay as it almost affords you enough time to partake on the activities available and at times the much needed space to recover from our party nights.

I should start by admitting that we weren't really backpacking when we stayed in island vibe, we just wanted to relive our former glories. That said, it's actually a great hostel. The staff are brilliant and the facilities match up. The bar was being renovated while we were there so we missed out on the full experience but this is...

Island vibe is located right by the beach, also not far from the billabong and quicksilver factories. The bar is open until last man standing, and the service is great. They offer lots of activities that are mainly cheap to do.

Dear Iselin Thank you for choosing Island Vibe Jbay and for your valued feedback.

Camped here for a couple of nights. Great place to meet other travellers and the staff are very nice and accommodating. Just don't pitch tent too close to the bar as can et quite noisy early in the morning around breakfast time, also closer to the trees block some of the morning Sun as it can hit very quickly!
