I loved the vibe of this place! It's chilled, and at the same time, good for party. It's just in front of the beach, you have the most amazing views from the window of your room! They also provide surfing lessons, and the staff is great.

This was our very first stay in a backpackers and we were very impressed. The staff was friendly, the accommodation clean and practical and the food on offer was delicious and reasonably priced. We will definitely stay over at Island Vibe Jeffreys Bay if we are in the area again.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely come again, especially to watch the surfing which is great fun. But just for a weekend getaway it is a perfect place. Could definitely do with more parking though.
