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!

I enjoyed the room and the atmosphere of the place. The downstairs pub/restaurant was perfect for a few drinks and some good food. However, the parties that go down are SO NOISY and we... More

Great lively atmosphere and party ambiance. Conveniently located close to the beach. Great with a group of friends who want a weekend get away. The rooms are comfortable and better than what was expected. It is worth it!!!
