Nice hostel with a rock music theme (hence the name), staff were very nice. Not far from the beach and plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Really liked the honesty bar


Awesome, Awesome, Awesome Hostel! I been in JBay a couple of times and stayed at basically all the hostels and this hostel is by far the best! Extremely help full staff and manager, made me feel right at home, great location close to all the surf spots in Jeffreys Bay and a max 5 min walk to anything you need. It was just a pity I did not have more time to stay longer.

Nice hostel, in Jbay, very safe and close to supertubes and boneyards, definitley to come back, the boss, and the volunteers, spanish girl and brazilian guy, very cool


We really enjoyed our stay at this chilled out backpackers. The owners and volunteer staff were great. They were really helpful and friendly and tried to keep us entertained as much as possible. The place is really clean with all round great facilities. It is in a good location with everything you need nearby.
