The place is very good. The staff was very helpful and nice. The manager showed us a great waterfall. Bar prices were great and the place is located 100m from the main road. Too bad we didn't arrived at mid season to meet more people. P.s jbay reserve is not a nice walk but can be a great bonding experience... More

Arriving in Jeffreys Bay late at night not knowing anyone and was immediately made to feel at home! Originally planned to stay 2/3 nights and ended up staying 3 weeks! Close to both the beach and town and Tamara and Dick will do all they can to make your stay as good as possible!

We were 15 people staying in two rooms in this awesome place, everything was clean and organised. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were always kept clean. Even through long power outages to the entire town, the staff kept the place going with candles and friendly service. The owner was always present when needed and always in a good mood, which...

Showers were not stable when it came to heat however and it took some time before someone opened the gate for us when we checked in.... More

Great hostel. It's clean, the beds are comfy, and you feel like home. They have a very social living room and big kitchen. The bar is not open every day, but who needs it when there's the "honesty bar" (self service in the fridge), I loved the concept! Furthermore, the owners are really kind and the volunteers who work there... More
