Property Description

Explore, discover and enjoy a unique taste of rural Africa! Idyllically located on the beach, Coffee Shack boasts one of the best locations in South Africa where you will experience a way of life far removed from Western culture. We have a reputation of being a fun, good-value hostel with excellent facilities and the most amazing, friendly staff. We offer accommodation in traditional, thatched-roof huts, ranging from private rooms to dorms, as well as camping facilities in the garden next to the beach. Choose between self-catering options or try our delicious meals with a free ‘potjie’ meal every Sunday night. Weather and ocean permitting, join us for daily sundowners with magnificent views or taste freshly caught oysters and mussels at the bar before dinner.
Stay for five nights and get your 5th night free! Our ‘Babalaza Bar’ is fully licensed and rocks in the evenings with its free pool table and range of drinks and cocktails. Join in the Killer Pool game or enjoy the chilled-out atmosphere around the fire pit. Our variety of day trips include cultural walks exploring the local Xhosa culture, a traditional evening of dance and song at the home of a local family where you can try traditional Xhosa food and beers, beach days on the beautiful Coffee Bay, surf lessons, exploring Mapuzi cliffs and caves, hiking to the legendary 'Hole in the Wall' or just walking in the local countryside with one of the local guides.
We are accredited by Fair Trade Tourism South Africa and are committed to the improvement and upliftment of the greater community through various education and support projects. We are dedicated to making a difference to the local community and are thus 30% owned by the local Tshezi Community, who receive direct financial benefits from being involved in the business. We aim to encourage growth and empowerment opportunities for the local community through the development of meaningful partnerships. Coffee Shack runs a daily shuttle to Mthatha to meet the Baz Bus and other mainline buses at the Shell Ultra City in Mthatha (Umtata). We have a good internet connection, safe parking and a laundry service. For self-drive, we are located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, in the former Transkei area. Turn onto the Coffee Bay road approximately 20km south of Mthatha, continue 80km down to the coast.

    Superb

    Over all a great experience. I really liked the atmosphere. However, people were really loud and not really considering that others try to sleep. That being said, the location is just lovely and really nice. Basically on the beach! Surf lessons are super cheap as well which is nice! They have affordable activities at the hostel which is nice. However, not really much to do.

    Very cool hostel basically on the water. We stayed in the private huts and were blown away with the cleanliness, view and overall experience. The food is delicious too. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

    Nice Hostel with clean facilities and friendly staff right at the beach! They offer activities to the sights every day. You can get breakfast, lunch and dinner as well. Only downside is the lack of lockers for valuables and the river which makes it quite a way from some rooms to the main hostel.
