Only reviewing Hard Rock now as I've just made an account, but I had a great stay here back in March of 2014. I went up to J-Bay by myself from Cape Town on a solo surf mission so was a little nervous but that went away as soon as I go to Hard Rock. The owners are exceptional individuals... More

We stayed in a double ensuite for 1 night. The backpackers was easy to find and had a very laid back vibe being in surf Central you expect this. The bed was clean and comfy and we got a good nights kip. The only one thing I didn't like was the noise from the pool table which echoed in the... More

Its got enough room but not too big. A solo traveler can camp, get a dorm bed, or rent a 2 bed dorm on their own. Lots of common areas including kitchen with large table, pool table area, TV lounge, bar with dart board, and large back yard with picnic tables, hammocks, and braai. The staff are cool and helpful... More

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...
