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.


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 spend there 4 nights at En suite room.
The place is very nice and clean,
Big kitchen with all the machines you might need, games room, jacussi and swiming pool.
Staff was very nice and helpful.
Five minutes walking to the beach
and about 15 minutes to the nearest market(Pick'n'Pay).

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.
