I just spent one night at the hostel, but I appreciate the structure. They have a cool Jacuzzi, pool table, common kitchen, and the staff is very friendly. The dorms had proper beds, intead of bunk beds, which are nice.

Upon arrival it seemed our reservation had not been processed, and despite all possible paperwork and identification staff continued to be fairly unhelpful. Once the reservation was found there was limited apology for humility for any mistakes made, and we were put into a room that wasn't in great condition. Poor fitting lights, limited hot water, and electrical power points... More

I found Island Vibe Port Elizabeth on booking.com and stayed here for a night in a double room. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, the room is very small especially bathroom is tiny and narrow. I would prefer to spend a bit more to stay in a bigger and better room.

Good location, proboarbly one of the safest locations in port elizabeth. The building is ok, but the pool was not clean, might be because of winter season. Friendly staff. Code on the gate so you dont have to wait for someone to open it for you.

The room was cold, no extra blankets just a thin blanket and a throw. The curtains were unhinged so I had to fix that as there was a draft coming in through a... More
