The staff was friendly and courteous and helpful. The place comes highly recommended and my place of choice when visiting Port Elizabeth. I have been using the establishment for the past 7 years and have never had complaints about it. Island Vibe is centrally situated in closeness of all the night entertainment venues and is a safe haven for visitors.

Island vibe backpackers in Summerstrand is the perfect place to stay for a chilled out and relaxing holiday. It's perfectly situated with friendly helpful staff and the manageress Eve is the most professional and helpful, knowledgeable lady always smiling and ready to help. What an amazing 5 Star lodge!

The hostel was very close to the beach, the staff was nice and friendly. It was clean and we had an awesome time there. We met really cool people and spent the whole evening hanging around in the Jacuzzi, which was very nice and relaxed.
