My favorite hostel in SA: best showers at least with good water pressure. Friendly people at reception (and others working trying to come up with things to do). Right on the beach. Also met some cool other travelers! Breakfast would be awesome as grocery store a bit far away... If really allergic to dogs prob better stay elsewhere as there are some dogs around (definitely not in the rooms though).


LOVED this place, wanted to stay here longer. perfect location on the beach. great excursions available... surfing lessons, waterfall cliff jumping, stand up paddling, horse riding... great stuff. great vibe at the bar, awesome people, and great viewww from the balcony. great food from the bar also. only comments: please tell the night guards that the guests in kirra can hear them talking loudly at night. also, maybe you can trim the bushes so the view is even easier to see! :D thank you!


This is always our "go to" place when we stay in JBay, whether it be for birthday weekends or an all girls night!! Best vibes, great bar and always something to entertain you. Stunning views always add to this awesome place!
