Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Island Vibe is perfectly located for your ideal beach holiday. Perched on a sand dune overlooking the main swimming beach, the views from rooms, wooden decks and garden are unbeatable. Thrown into the deal is Kitchen Windows surf break just a hop away- an excellent spot for both novice and experienced alike.

Island Vibe has various accommodation offerings - single, double, triple and family en suites; co-ed dorms, camping, and private garden cabins with shared communal bathrooms. The ambiance exudes fun all the way; we have regular parties in our in-house bar while our surf side restaurant offers value for money meals, as well as mouth- watering pizzas.

Activities are aplenty - daily trips or tours can be organised through our reception to either local destinations or further afield attractions. In-house trips include Addo Elephant park, Seaview Lion park, Bloukrans Bungy, a nearby waterfall, beach horse rides, surf lessons, township tours and more. Relax at the end of the day in our beach bar or play a game of beach volleyball or football with other guests and staff.

We offer special deals throughout the year so be sure to enquire at reception on arrival or via email on booking.

A eviter le samedi soir quand on est une fille seule en dortoir mixte. Plein de jeunots qui viennent franchement se lacher, je vous épargne les détails. Salle de bain salle et seule l'eau chaude de la douche marchait... Dommage car c'est un bel endroit face à la mer. A tenter dans une chambre privée éloignée du bar!

This Backpacker could not manage my online booking on hihostels. Had to pay for another, more expensilve room for the first night, after that i got an other room. Please make sure, online bookings reach the backpacker for future guest. It was no fun hearing in the evening that there is no reservation on my name.
