I booked 3 nights for me and my two sisters, from the start service was super! Friendly and helpful over the phone, emails and at the lodge. Beautiful location, rooms were neat and clean and everything we needed! The communal kitchen lacked a couple of things like cutlery, but staff was super helpful once we asked. Great vibe at the...

second time at Avrovibe, and will always be back, what they offer is just perfect for a quick stop over as ours was again this year. It is clean, neat and offers just what we need, including the restuarant right there. Service was excellent, the young staff went out of their way to make a special arrangement for me. 10/10...

My partner and I booked a private room at Afrovibe months ahead of our stay without seeing the facilities. As expected, we were a bit apprehensive on arrival due to the negative perception of backpackers in general. before we arrived we received a courtesy call from the manager on duty to confirm that we'd still be arriving (nice). When we... More

Friendly service, free Wi-Fi in the café, great bar and restaurant, seaside location... this has all the ingredients for a good backpackers and delivers! This place is not for those looking for some peace and quiet, even in private rooms, because of the noisy bar below. But it's a great place to meet people and have a good time -... More

I stayed here one night while traveling South Africa, the rooms were lovely and secure and it is right on the beach so you can see the sea from the balcony. When I stayed I was able to hire a surf board mad wet suit within 20 Minutes of getting there, and they served an evening meal which was gorgeous... More

We spent 3 nights there and it was fantastic. It's right next to the beach and one night we went stargazing on the beach...I can hardly describe just how beautiful that was <3 In addition to the awesome location I can recommend the food in the bar downstairs... They make delicious pizza in a stone oven! And there's a lot... More

I've been at this property quite a few times and it remains one of my top budget properties along the entire Garden Route. Everything you need for a good night's rest, right on the beach. The Pili Pili beach bar and restaurant right next door to Afrovibe means you can kick off you shoes at sunset, leave the car keys... More

clean sheets. quaintly decored. very comfortable. although management should be aware travellers need wifi... it would be nicer to have stronger signal in rooms. there is wifi in coffee lobby but since its the only place with wifi... everyone is sharing the already weak signal.

The backpackers is beautifully located at Myoli Beach, as soon as you step out of the hostel you basically fall onto the endless beach. The rooms are very clean and the overall design is very hospitable, it feels like you are invited for for a visit at a friends place. The breakfast buffet was, unlike any other backpackers, very delicious... More
