Our stay at Jeffrey's bay was amazing, great location on the beach front! We spent the morning horse riding on the beach which was the perfect way to start the day! The horses were great, easy to ride and keen to race! Then we went on to the waterfall trip in the afternoon which was definitely worth the visit! We... More

Great hostel ideally placed for surfing and exploring the town of Jeffrey's Bay. All staff were lovely and very helpful. Nice rooms with good facilities. Will definitely stay here if I return to J Bay.

Not a terrible backpackers but far from good. The bar has a good vibe and the food is good value for money and quite tasty. We did the township tour which was very nice and well worth the small fee of R100. Its close to town and the beach which is great. However, there are some negatives. The showers have... More

We were very happy with the friendliness of all the staff at Island Vibe - particularly at Reception and the Bar. Our only regret is that we only spent 1 night at the Island Vibe - will definitely be back for a longer stay !

Was supposed to stay two nights with my friend but we ended up staying 4!! Everyone was so friendly! Felix and Cameron will have to be my favourites for looking after us. Moses was also an absolute ledge. The dorms could do with a slight update (actual bunk beds instead of a really low bottom bunk!) but the Island Vibe... More

Out of my 4 week stay in SA, I had the least budget for J Bay yet it is where I spent my most memorable moments! Check out Kitchen Windows at sunrise right from my room's doorstep, it is an awesome wave and not nearly as busy as Tubes, The Point etc... Jam sessions, Braais, socializing, it was a lekker...

Island Vibe is easily my favorite place that I've been to in South Africa. We were greeted by an incredibly friendly Charmain and spent a few great nights surfing and relaxing at the beach. The bar and grill are amazing, the accommodation was perfect and affordable, and the people were so friendly.

Epic place. After a day's surfing j and a good feed it's onto the beer pong to drink far too much and compete against all the friends you've made. Props to felix - after a night he cooked me up some eggs. In the day he helped us with ideas, the works. I'll be back in a blink.

Few mates stayed there for 5 nights in April 2015. Staff were brilliant. Felix was a great help showed us around and hooked us up with places to go and see. He's also unstoppable on the beer pong table. Definitely recommend staying there would go back for sure!

I love that I can just pop in.. Sleep in a dorm room for a night or two.. Or come for a longer stay, then I can set up a sweet camping spot.. With a classic wave breaking a stones through away.. Food is prepared right there whether you want to cook yourself or just enjoy the restaurants easy and... More
