I stayed in island vibe for one night only, whilst travelling south Africas garden route, i wish id of stayed longer but i was with a group and we were doing a different place every day.
I stayed in a total of 5 backpackers whilst in africa and by far island vibe was my favourite...
The veiw from the place is amazing, overlooking the beach, literally footsteps away.
The food there was great, also breakfast i was suprised at the choice, from a cooked breakfast to musli with yog & honey, so yummy!! :)
Its literally also a 10minute walk if that from the shops, bilabong store, gorgeous mexican reasturant and other souviner shops.
The bar are on a night was preety busy when i was there, everyone was friendly, they also had a fire breather outside doing a show!! the drinks were reasonably priced, R13 for a savanha dry cider and cocktails were around R20 Alot cheaper than cape town!!
I shared a room with 4 other people i was travelling with, the beds were comftable, we also had a bathroom attached to our room which is a bonus with some backpackers, although i know the other side of the building dosent have a bathroom attached.
We also had a surfing lesson whilst there, for 2 hours and it was my first time sufing Ever! and i stood up on my board and caught a wave by the end of the lesson, we all did! he was a brilliant teacher who does the surf school through island vibe. none of that hour practising on the sand! lol
So id also reccomend that and they take photos of you so you can buy them after your lesson, very good quality!
id 100% reccomend this place, It has a sufer vibe to it, with the surfing posters on the wall and surf boards, i felt very surfer chic after id had my one lesson lol, and i also felt safe the whole time i was there.
Im going to try and do reveiws on every where and stayed and everything i did so please check out my other reveiws! Hope this helps :) x
