It is situated right on the beach, and a quick walk to J bay downtown. The rooms are beautiful and clean, and the living spaces are comfortable with funky mosaics. The...

Stayed here on two occasions as we had booked four nights originally but as the surf was flat..we left and came back a month later to use our remaining nights. Most expensive hostel we stayed in in SA 500R for a double cabin but you get 10%off if you've stayed in another island vibe (knysna or port Elizabeth). First time...

Friendly staff with nice views and fairly good value for money. The 'Flashpackers' building is separate from the rest of the hostel and is ideal for older travellers. Unfortunately there is no TV in the building.

Dear Guest Thank you for choosing Island Vibe Jbay and for your valued feedback. We appreciate your feedback regarding staff friendliness, guest interaction is very important to us in order for us not to be rigid and impersonal, the uninterrupted views from the flashpackers rooms is something special. The idea for the flashpackers is more for people who prefer privacy...

This hostel has an awesome location, glued to the beach, with rooms that have great views to the sea. We managed to see an incredible sunrise at 6 in the morning!

Still one of my favorite places to visit in South Africa. Island Vibe is clean, comfortable and fun! Lots of friendly staff and lots of in house activities to do, a great place to go surfing, or learn to surf. Close to the surf clothing factory shops and restaurants and situated right on the beach with sea views. Stay here!

Sadly, due to the unsafety factor our stay at Island Vibe was not as I had hoped. At around 17h00 a repair man knocked on our door while I was running a bath, to fix a window handle. This should have been done before check in. Beach is unsafe to visit, not a good first impression.
