Really liked this hostel. Apart from sand everywhere it was really clean and comfortable. Views were stunning. Also used the surf school Based at the hostel. The instructor was really friendly but we had to carry our really heavy surf boards a long way before our lesson began! Food was also good and reasonably priced here.

The best option for stay in Jeffreys Bay. Just in front of the beach, with a such nice bar. The breakfast isn't include, but is not problem. Is cheap and delicious. There also some nice tours that you can do with the staff. Charmaine is awesome, and help me with all information. And enjoy the surf lessons.

Island Vibe JB is one of those places completely defined by its location - the beach. Literally sitting on a hillside just above the waves the sound of the surf accompanies you all day and throughout the night. The vibe is also excellent and a ton of fun with people partying it up in the evening. Beer pong, shots, drinks,... More

I have been going to Jeffreys Bay regularly for about 10 years now. Only once I have stayed in another B&B in town and I was so disappointed I booked out early and checked in at Island Vibe. It was an amazing vibe, the view is incredible with access to amazing beaches! Truely the only place I or anyone should... More

We stayed on the flashpackers and it wad unbelievable! Ridiculously cheap too! A Jacuzzi and private bathroom and bed. The room has a deck and it all overlooks the ocean. Phenomenal and is right by the main clubhouse where you can go and enjoy a serious and awesome surfer vibe. They were all nothing but lovely for us. We also... More

Had a great time. Everything about Island Vibe exceeded expectations. The food, atmosphere and people all were great. The staff was especially friendly and accommodating. I could not have asked for a better stay.

Island vibe is the perfect place to relax with a drink from the bar, with a beautiful view and music. Go and surf with your new friends or just take a walk on the beach just a stair away. I had the time of my life, and I keep coming back.
