I just made an account and immediately searched Afrovibe, so I could write about my fabulous experience! In June 2013 me and some friends traveled to Cape Town to volunteer in a township at a daycare. One of the weekends we were there, we went on a tour of the Garden Route basically and Afrovibe was our home for the... More

I came as part of a backpacker tour. We received a warm welcome with a cheeky cocktail from the bar downstairs which was a nice surprise. The hostel is located on a beautiful stretch of beach. The staff were helpful and friendly. The only negative I had was that the carpet of the room had not been hoovered and it... More

The hostel is great. Arriving we heard there was a bit of a mix-up in our booking, but that was sorted soon enough. We had a wonderful stay, the bar on the ground floor is not disturbing, we heard no music, and we stayed right on top of the bar, and we never had problems with drunk people. The beds... More

The key word in Afrovibe is v i b e . It comes from the beach that is so close that the sand creeps up to the doors, and the plush dorm room beds with views of the waves. Its also from the restaurant where you can eat fire grilled pizzas while sipping on a freshly squeezed juice from the... More

Stayed here early january 2015! Great stay and the best staff with all kinds of different adventures and fun stuff. Located at the beach and a couple of hundred meters away from the great lagoon and rivermouth it's a paradise! A must if you're on the garden route!

Great place with a great vibe, super friendly staff and an awesome owner. Highly recommended to beach lovers as the beach goes as far as the eye can see, with a lazy estuary for stand up paddle boarding or kayaking. A lovely cafe/restaurant adjoining the backpackers means finding food or drink is not difficult. I could happily live here!
