I personally think that Island Vibe is the most amazing place to be as i have noticed that they cater for both Holiday-makers & Business visitors! Eve & Moses makes you feel like a king with their warm welcoming, my private room was very neat and spacious what more can i say I really had a fantastic stay there so much so I left feeling as a friend not a guest anymore. to all guests out there if you planning on visiting Knysna, Jeffrey s bay or Port Elizabeth find Island vibe backpackers for a perfect stay.

The experience I had, I mean still enjoying because I am not checked out yet, is the best. Back packing is the future especially if it's done the Island Vibes PE way.
The lady at front desk (Eve) she is helpful, knowledgeable about the surrounding and very pleasant. I doubt anyone leave without being friends with her. Keep up the good work Eve!
Great location!
Great people!
Cost close to nothing!
Thank you.


Well what can I say.. We visited Addo elephant national park and we saw 6 male lions (yes I know I couldn't believe it either) dozens of herds of elephants, buffalo, zebra, warthogs and so many more! Fantastic reserve, with a great restaurant which is reasonably priced! But I don't think we would of had a brilliant day, without our guide Kevin! He was friendly, helpful, professional and so passionate about his job and the protection of the animals! He knew all the great spots to find the animals and was the most amazing experience I've had in Africa!
Thank you so much!
The hostel is brilliant. It's clean, spacious, excellent facilities and great location!

Our private room was very clean and spacious. Even a blow dryer was provided, a luxury when backpacking! The shower was great. We would like to thank Eve for perfectly arranging our stay and our transfer! When the taxi broke down and we were running a little late, she even called to make sure we were ok!


We just stay one night at the Island Vibe Backpackers after a flight from Durban .
Backpacker is close by the airport and close by the Beach in a nice and save area .
Staff was very friendly , backpacker was clean and cool with the Whirlpool and the Big Pool outside in the Garden . Everything was good and okay .
Good place if you wanna stay just one night or longer .

Next time when we are in Port Elizabeth we will stay again.

Thanks to all the nice and super friendly staff .

This hostel is not a backpacker, it's a guest house. Me and my friends stayed here for three nights in a dorm. Upon arrival, we were surprised when we were shown the dorm, It had only 4 single beds. It was the first hostel we slept in a dorm with no bunk beds. The room was very clean and big enough for 4 people, Clean towels and shower gel was provided.
