Property Description

Come and explore the revamped young heart of Port Elizabeth. Jikeleza is just a few streets away from the buzzing nightlife that will swallow you in and take you on a true local ride. The clubs in the area range from hip hop to African house to classic mainstream radio funk. Parliament & Stanley Streets have become the local hang outs, so who really needs a club anyway! Let's party in the street!

The surrounding restaurants and cafes sport hand baked pizzas in extravagant flavors and freshly rolled five star California sushi rolls. Have a lazy cocktail at one of the Cafe's while you lounge in their on street couches or chow down on huge chip rolls. Visit live music and theatre shows, banks, post office, pubs and 24 hour shops. Whatever you fancy, it is only a brisk walk away and our door is open all day and all night, so come home when you want.

You can also wander through the history of Olde Worlde Central, experience trendy art meccas and meet the locals.

Jikeleza's in-house travel desk is the right place to get advice on anything to anywhere Addo, Schotia, Big 5 Safaris, whale and dolphin trips, adventure, township and city tours.

JIKELEZA LODGE offers you a variety of accommodation. There are single rooms, double rooms (Double bed) and twin rooms (2 single beds), 3, 4 and 5 bed family/group rooms, dorms and camping. The hostel is never crowded and their dorms only have a maximum of 7 beds and at times are smaller. The dorms are mixed, both male and female, and may not be suitable for some local holiday makers who are not conversant with traveling etiquette. The kitchen is fully fitted so that you can whip up a quick meal or cook up a storm.

JIKELEZA LODGE is set right in the heart of the old historical Port Elizabeth city and right on the Donkin Heritage walking trail. Here you can walk amongst the many old buildings of yesteryear marveling at the fine architecture and history of the time. If traveling is getting you down then you can relax in their gardens. Grab a beer from their self service refreshment bar and have a braai or eat your breakfast under the cathedral style shady trees. Share your experience with the visiting birds and dassies who frequent the garden often.

JIKELEZA LODGE has it's own in-house travel desk and is the best place to get advice on anything to anywhere. They can arrange day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, lion safaris to Schotia, city and township tours, Baz Bus and Intercape Inter City Bus tickets, historical and heritage tours, transfers and overland trips and tours anywhere in Southern Africa. They also have specially priced accommodation and tour packages for backpackers and you can save quite a lot if you take one of these.

For the South African holiday maker who wants to get away from it all this may not be your scene. Interaction between guests is encouraged and all the facilities such as kitchens, bathrooms, lounges and TV rooms are shared. A Backpackers has nothing to do with hiking and is a unique way of traveling. So if it is your first time, check the scene out before booking, we don't want you to be disappointed.

    Superb

    Just stayed here overnight for a few hours while backpacking the garden route. Don’t know anything about port Elizabeth so can’t say much about the location. Staff are extremely friendly, good place to get a few hours of sleep.

    Very Good

    They asked for my credit card CVV after I booked, which is already enough not to recommend them. The stay did not change my impression much: no lockers and no safe at the reception, extremely low bottom bunks, internet barely working and a sketchy neighborhood. However, the dorm was clean and the staff friendly.

    The staff and manager made the stay worth while. They gave me extra bedding, lent me shorts when I had none, gave me loads of information and booked a trip for me.. you get what you pay for on this one, but what the location n area lacks the staff made up for.
