Property Description

Perched on a dune with a 270 degree view of the Indian Ocean, this sea-view Eden provides the perfect setting for any beach bum.

Wooden decks overlook the bay and provide wonderful, aloe-framed views and the perfect setting to soak up the sun, do some dolphin and whale watching or watch the full moon rising.

Every room- and brilliant camp site- has an uninterrupted view of the ocean. There are excellent surf spots on the doorstep and when the swell pulls in, you'll hear the crash of the ocean from your bed. There are also communal self catering facilities. As well as WIFI Internet.

Island Vibe has the right balance to build friendships and restore weary travellers. Spend a night in the bar and you'll soon see why it's called the Vibe. View House Rules

    I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of my garden route trip, honestly it was the highlight. Most of the other destinations were quiet due to low season, but island vibe in jeffreys still had a great atmosphere despite not being full. The surfing was great, and it was easy to make friends with fellow travellers.

    Spent a week here over Christmas and had an awesome time. It is right on the beach, you can check the surf at Kitchen Windows from the deck! A 2 minute drive from all the shops etc. The bar was busy and fun almost every night - a mix of travellers and some jbay locals. Quite loud till late so keep that in mind if booking. Was a little nervous with people coming to the bar and the rooms not locking but had no problems! Met sweet people looking to have a good time.(special shout-out to Felix!)

    Had such a great time here, all the staff are really friendly, fun and helpful. There’s such a chilled atmosphere and would definitely come back in the future. The food is delicious and it’s in a good location. Was initially unsure about how good it would be due to other reviews I’d seen but being here in low season was so good!

    An awesome place with awesome people. Great atmosphere and location can''t be beaten. The only downside is that there was no option to lock our our door and the balcony's doors could be locked only in one side, so anyone could be able to enter the dorm at anytime.

    ⚠ No lockers in the rooms!!! 🗒 Book the biggest dorm as it is far away from the super noisy bar.

    Very Good

    The hostel is a nice backpackers, the staff is very nice, the food is good and the parties are great as well. Though it's located at the border with the township of Jeffrey's Bay, which makes it impossible to leave the hostel walking over the road. It is recommended by the hostel to only walk to the left over the beach. A friend and I did this during daylight, and we were stabbed and robbed walking back from main beach, so we recommend to be very careful and walk in big groups.

    Even though the hostel is located in front of the beach, it is in a dangerous area with no supermarket, restaurante near it. The room is tiny but clean.

    We booked for two nights, but we’re put in a room next to the bar, and music was BLARING through the speakers till 5am, so very little sleep was had. There were also no lockers for bags or valuables, so we felt very on edge about our stuff. The overall atmosphere was unwelcoming and dry. So for all of these reasons we left after only staying one day, as it didn’t feel worth it staying, especially since the wind was so bad surfing wasn’t even an option - of course not being the hostels fault.

    The bed sheets and mattresses were super old and smelled really bad. The cats were sitting on the kitchen counter where we planned to prepare our breakfast. The food we then ordered from the staff in the kitchen was absolutely not worth the price.
