The Hostel has a sensational location, with an incredible sea view!! The common area is super well equipped, clean and comfortable!! The bar/restaurant has great options for breakfast (fair price), and a specific dish (delicious) for each dinner, where you can socialize with other guests! The hostel staff is amazing, with incredible energy, and they promote different activities every day to entertain guests (all of the ones I did were free)!!!!

Overall had an amazing experience at Island Vibes in Jeffreys Bay. We stayed in one of the cabins with sea view, which was great value for the money! Staff was super friendly and helpful. Particularly enjoyed the company of JJ and Jamila, who arranged a wonderful trip to the waterfall and a real African braai! Quality surfing gear and wetsuits for a fair rental price. Surfing instructor Liam was very kind and helpful. Bar, kitchen and other facilities were clean. Showers didn't have hot water, but that was alright with the hot weather.

We enjoyed staying at Island Vibe Jeffreys Bay. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. It was not pur first time we stayed there, and certainly not our last. We decided on a backpacking trip this year to introduce our 18 year old daughter to the backpacking vibe in SA. She already said she is definately bringing her friends there. Island Vibe JBay was one of the top 3 on our list to visit. With our previous experiences at Island Vibe JBay we will most definately recomend your establishment and come for a visit again. We would like to thank you and your staff for everything. The only thing that can be adressed is protection against the wind around the bar area, i.e storm flaps

Loved the space and the people. Perfectly located near everything, and is easy to walk to the beach and all other amenities. The guests staying alongside you are very friendly and the environment is pretty great
