Our plan was to stay in Jeffrey’s bay for one day, but the hostel was so inviting that we had to stay for one more day. We had great experience in surf classes, the barbecue in the hostel. Staff amazing

Really nice and relaxed place to stay. The staff is really nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and in low season it is not really busy so we had a 6 bed room for ourselves. Close to the beach and you will find everything in walking distance.

The place is very cozy and welcoming as you step in. The staff is very friendly and available, they make you feel as you know them for ages. I also likes a lot the communal spaces, the big kitchen at the entrance as well as the swimming pool areas in the backyard. The position is also perfect, right in front the beach. I mean, why would you want to miss it? :)
